That Valhalla - although he probably never really cared about that, after all his goal was revenge allone - would be a scary place, probably wouldn't have been a thought of the young Thorfinn. Fighting was his life. This zombie battlefield he saw probably was the result of acknowledging his father's ideas of fearing and hating war and combat.
So, I guess that it really was "Valhalla" how he sees it now, as a symbol. Not something noble and desirable anymore, but only terror and madness. A symbol for Thorfinn not beeing willing anymore to accept an "honorable death" in combat as a good thing.
What a chapter, I totally loved it. The art was so captivating. We are almost there, we will know what are those dreams are all about. Valhalla, looks a symbolization for what troubles him. I don't believe its actually Valhalla he is seeing.
The previous Thorfinn was defined by combat, don't you think? "Normal" Valhalla would be a good symbol for that, he tries to achieve satisfaction ("heaven") by fighting, so he keeps on fighting.
But now, he sees "Hell" Valhalla instead, a scary vision. A symbol for the fact that he -subconsciously- accepted, that fighting doesn't give any satisfaction but only gives birth to suffering.
I think it's quite conclusive when describing it as his personal vision of valhalla.
When Askeladd died, I knew back then Thorfin would have hard time to find a reason for existence. His dreams are related to the guilty of not avenging his father. But I think as the story progresses, he will learn to let of the guilt.
As Kaiten said, I liked it too. Thorfinn will eventually find peace though may have to fight again. I have said it in previous thread or the one before it, the story may no longer evolve around his personal grudge. I can see story moving towards a grander plot.
i think i will wait for the scanlation, it will probably be out in a few days..
Yes usually, the chapters are our at the end of the month or the first week of the coming month. Scans should available in few days. I will wait for them too. I am so excited for the chapter. I am hoping the story picking up the pace. The last chapter was pretty good.
