‘Vinland Saga’ Creator Makoto Yukimura Making US Debut at San Diego Comic-Con 2023

Vinland Saga creator Makoto Yukimura will be making his U.S. debut this summer at San Diego Comic-Con 2023. Kodansha, a subsidiary of Japan’s largest publisher, announced the news this morning.

Yukimura will be on hand to celebrate both Yukimura-sensei and Vinland Saga at Booth #5542, where he will be on hand for signings, exclusive giveaways, and “additional surprises” still to be announced.

Vinland Saga follows the story of Thorfinn, who grew up at the feet of the great Leif Ericson. His youthful fantasies are shattered by a mercenary raid though, and he’s then raised by the Vikings who murdered his family, to become a terrifying warrior. Now, he seeks our to avenge his father, and dreams of a fertile westward land, a land without war or slavery — the land Leif called Vinland.
