Fall of Gods is an "illustrated book" that tells the story of a Norse warrior who, having lost his wife, sets out on an epic journey to get her back. By fighting a ton of monsters.

It's not a comic or graphic novel; the book is a collection of large illustrations done by professional concept artists, with a script accompanying them that ties it all together. Imagine a kid's picture book, then, only instead of watercolour rabbits there are two-page spreads with dragons and big swords.

The man in charge of the project is Rasmus Berggreen, whose work we've featured previously on Fine Art, though he's also joined by the likes of writer Michael Vogt (Hitman) and Jan Ditlev Christensen.

You can see more pics, and read more about Fall of Gods, at its Kickstarter page.

This is so cool... I wish they would do this when Sony decides to continue "God of War" games. Instead of going back to Kratos. Norse mythos would be perfect for game like that. :)
