Vinland Saga Book 10 Review - AiPT! Comics - via Adventuresinpoortaste
The art continues to be marvelously detailed and well-researched. In one of the notes sections, Yukimura points out the limitations of technology at the time making his job harder when designing weapons or even making sense of a character pulling some money out of a pocket–there were no pockets at the time. This book stands as a historical replication of the time which adds to the realism, of course, but also the value of the story since you know everything you see is accurate.
Review: "Vinland Saga" - Emertainment Monthly - per Emertainmentmonthly
Of course, a review of Vinland Saga would be incomplete without addressing Yukimura’s breathtaking art. Yukimura, unlike other manga artists, relies primarily on line work to create shading and depth to his illustrations. As a result, Vinland Saga has a very distinct aesthetic. Almost analogue in appearance, the series looks like something out of an aged storybook, befitting its epic nature. And whether it’s between two men or two entire armies, Vinland Saga most certainly delivers on the kind of grand, violent and brutal fight scenes expected of a historical fiction story about Vikings. From the fractured bones and ripped tendons of a dismembered hand, to the expressions of horror or rage on a character’s face, these gruesome illustrations are where Yukimura’s attention to detail truly shines.

There's another good juxtaposition here between Canute and Thorfinn, as the two have essentially reversed their roles from when they first met. Now a king, Canute will do anything he feels he needs to in order to solidify his hold on power while Thorfinn will go out of his way to avoid violence. But where Thorfinn's new resolve is genuine – as we clearly see in the scenes leading up to his discussion with Canute – the king's is more forced. He's at risk of becoming a Macbeth, listening to his own version of the Wyrd Sisters in henchmen like Floki and the nobility, but his heart isn't truly in it. This means that the old Canute is somewhere just beneath the surface, and his talk with Thorfinn reveals that he still has a lot of humanity left – the scene where he bursts into laughter is a powerful reminder of it, as well as a welcome moment of levity in a tense situation.
