"A sword untried is a sword untested," says one raven to another as they set out to witness the fate of the finest farm in Garmrland and its owner, Barbarian Lord. When he is cheated out of his lands and banished, Barbarian Lord begins a quest for allies and for justice, encountering monsters, ghouls, gods, and mediocre poets along the way. Combining the rich traditions of the Vikings and Nordic lore with sword-and-sorcery-and slyly understated humor-this graphic novel introduces an original hero with classic flair, brought to life in Matt Smith's beautifully drawn, detailed, and action-filled black-and-white illustrations.
Matt Smith drew his first Conan the Barbarian adventure when was eight years old. A children's book illustrator fascinated by traditional lore and comic book heroes, Matt lives with his wife and their dog in Lexington, Massachusetts.

Editorial Reviews

This plot is nothing if not action-driven, the multitudinous battle scenes and abundant swordplay (and excellent sound effects) making this an excellent choice for readers interested in Game of Thrones but who perhaps aren't quite ready for some of its more mature subject matter." -Kirkus "All bend knee and hail! Barbarian Lord !" -Previews "An easy summer reading pick for middle-grade graphic novel aficionados and reluctant readers." -School Library Journal "An accessible, memorable thrill of a graphic novel." -Bulletin "
