The Viking Prince

Overview

When an amnesiac Viking warrior washed up on the shores of a fishing village in fifth century Iceland, the villagers guessed from his garb that he was royalty, and so they called him Jon, after a legendary prince. Only Thorvald, ruler of a nearby town, realized that he was in fact both royalty and a threat to his own power -- and so, Thorvald plotted to kill Jon. While dodging Thorvald's attempts on his life, Jon also battled giants, sea monsters, witches and more.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Before it became the province of superheroes, DC's series The Brave and the Bold featured historical adventure, and one of its first stars was Jon the Viking Prince, blond warrior of the tenth-century Norsemen. This hardcover collects every Viking Prince story illustrated by Kubert (Fax from Sarajevo; Yossel), including the complete 1955-59 Brave and the Bold stories and a 1966 World War II team-up between the out-of-time prince and long-running Kubert hero Sgt. Rock. Scripts are by Kanigher, Bob Haney, and Bill Finger. These short tales (most are eight or 12 pages) are filled with daring exploits and courageous heroism, as Jon battles pirates, sea monsters, and an evil rival to his throne. The tales are internally inconsistent and not cohesive: the hero's backstory keeps changing, running plotlines are abandoned before completion, and more-or-less realistic situations later give way to overt fantasy. VERDICT These uncomplicated stories still have the power to rouse and excite. Kubert's artwork, always filled with vitality, hits its stride halfway through the series, as he moves into the mature style that earned his fame. A welcome collection of noteworthy work.—S.R.
