The action and drama of previous volumes is mostly discarded as the story veers into comic farce with Runaway Bride and Three Men and a Baby antics. It's nice to see some more female characters at least, but I wonder if we're starting to pull an Outlaw Josey Wales and gathering a quirky lot of potential settlers for Thorfinn's utopian settlement in Vinland.

Well, before that can happen, time for a two-year side trip to Greece. Strange choice, but I'm along for the ride. ( )

For a time it seemed as though the fate of the English-language edition of Makoto Yukimura's epic award-winning manga series Vinland Saga was in question. Happily though, Kodansha Comics has been able to continue releasing the series. While the seventh omnibus reached a satisfying conclusion to one of the series' major story arcs, it was still obvious that Yukimura had more to tell. I honestly believe that Vinland Saga is one of the strongest manga currently being released in English. It is also a personal favorite of mine, so I was thrilled when the eighth hardcover omnibus was finally released in 2016, collecting the fifteenth and sixteenth volumes of the original Japanese edition published between 2014 and 2015. Unlike the past few omnibuses of Vinland Saga, there is no additional content directly relating to the series (I was sad not to see the continuation of the "Ask Yukimura" section), but it does include an extensive preview of Kazuhiro Fujita's The Ghost and the Lady, another historically-inspired manga available from Kodansha.

Finally free from his life of slavery but still bound by the violence of his past, Thorfinn travels back to Iceland in order to briefly reunite with his family before setting into motion his plans for the future. Accompanied by Einar, Leif, and "Bug-Eyes," Thorfinn intends to colonize Vinland in an attempt to create a peaceful settlement far removed from the wars and violence seemingly inherent to the Norse way of life. But before that they must first secure the resources and supplies needed for the venture and support from others will be hard to come by–Thorfinn has very little to offer a potential investor except for ideals and his own life. Initially it seemed that they could secure the aid of Halfdan, a wealthy landowner who was already planning to become a relative of Leif's by marrying his son to the widow of Lief's brother, but then the wedding doesn't go quite as planned. Thorfinn and the others may very well have gained themselves a few new enemies when they flee Iceland with Gudrid, the runaway bride.

From the beginning, many of the women in Vinland Saga have been strong, memorable characters (Thorfinn's sister and mother in particular are marvelous), but for the most part the focus of the series has been on the stories of the men. However, with the eighth omnibus there is a notable change in the manga with he introduction of Gudrid who becomes one of the main characters of Vinland Saga. In fact, a great deal of the plot currently directly revolves around her. I absolutely adore Gudrid. Like Thorfinn, she is struggling against the constraints of what is considered acceptable by the culture and traditions of their society. She has absolutely no interest in marriage or in behaving like a "proper" woman; her heart has always been set on exploring the world around her and expanding her horizons. Gudrid repeatedly proves that her worth is equal to or even greater than that of a man. Eventually, her persistence and brashness pays off although the circumstances surrounding her becoming a sailor are admittedly less than ideal.

Gudrid isn't the only great female character to be introduced in the eighth Vinland Saga omnibus. Among others, there is also Astrid, Halfdan's wife, and Hild, a young woman who proves once more that Thorfinn can never truly escape his past misdeeds. While many of the previous omnibuses have been battle-oriented, the eight omnibus tends to pay more attention to the characters themselves and their relationships. However, there are still a few excellent action sequences and Yukimura's artwork continues to be dynamic and dramatic even when physical violence is not as prominent. For example, Halfdan exudes an aura of intensity and power–the way he is drawn and visually framed is frequently reminiscent of the way King Canute was portrayed, emphasizing his status and influence. This, of course, makes it even more satisfying when Astrid calmly, quietly, and fearlessly puts her husband in his place. (I really hope to see more of Astrid in the future.) Vinland Saga remains an incredibly well-done manga. With a growing cast of fantastic, complex characters, an engrossing story exploring themes of freedom and violence, and excellent artwork, I can't wait to read more.

I adored this most recent volume in the Vinland Saga. Thorfinn is back home and trying to decide what to do with his life, he really wants to settle Vinland and goes about trying to find funding for that. Meanwhile Gudrid is supposed to marry Halfdan’s son and would rather be sailing.

This volume has a lot less war and action in it but it is still very engaging and entertaining. That being said we do still see how the war in the region has a huge impact in people’s lives. There is also more discussion on the lot women have in this region as Gudrid struggles against the expectations laid on her.

I love that this book has great characters, great dialogue, an epic story, and some humor. This continues to be an absolutely amazing series full of adventure. The illustration is phenomenal; there is so much detail and care.

Overall a spectacular continuation in this series. This is my absolute favorite manga series out there. Every aspect of this story is just so well done. I would recommend to everyone. This is one fantastic historical fiction manga series and has remained constantly awesome. ( )
