Well, ain’t this a treat? The BEAT is proud to announce exclusively the upcoming release of KONUNGAR: WAR OF CROWNS from Statix Press. Originally published by Éditions Glénat in 2011, writer Sylvain Runberg (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Orbital) and artist Juzhen concocted a high-fantasy quest featuring the epic battle between Vikings and Centaurs in conjunction with the story of a reluctant team-up between two estranged brothers trying to do what is right by their people.

The War of Crowns will be coming to American shores later this summer. Here’s a quick synopsis:

Gorgeously rendered epic fantasy from the writer of Titan‘s Millennium series – Sylvain Runberg
Two sons at war in a battle for the throne that has torn their country apart. Taking advantage of this conflict, the Centaurs, mortal enemies of the Vikings, have declared war. To combat this ancient foe, the two brothers must put aside their differences for the good of their people. 
The BEAT is proud to reveal the American cover for the first issue, from artist Alex Ronald (Assassin’s Creed, Quarry’s War).
