Berk's Grapevine

A comic book for Riders of Berk

Test sketch for… somethin’….

And that something is a comic book based on Riders of Berk. If you're on Tumblr, you may have seen some of these awesome images floating around. We saw a tweet about it a while back, but thought it was a joke. Turns out it wasn't.

The book will be published by Ape Entertainment, and will probably look something like the kung Fu Panda comic book. According to a tweet by James Silvani (below), it probably won't be as "dark" as the TV show, but judging by the art we've seen, it's going to look pretty awesome anyway.

Here are several tweets James Silvani and Amy Mebberson posted about the comic book:


  1. I found these pictures a loooong time ago, I didn't think anything of it. But this is cool! Can't wait for the comic!

  2. This'll be great! I just hope they make it as 'dark', though. I really enjoy HTTYD (partly) because of that.

  3. I've made together a comic cover... and I'm making a little book thing.. I'd like to upload a picture though.

  4. It's mixed up with Riders of Berk, but it isn't based off of the episodes.

  5. Aww, Astrid looks so ADORABLE ^-^ !

  6. is that stitch from le-lo and stitch riding toothless in picture 5
