How To Train Your Dragon Comics To Gain A Little More Diversity #C2Ccon2017


It may be an assumption that an ongoing series of films, TV shows and comics set in a Ancient Norse fantasy world may be restricted in the portrayal of ethnic diversity. As in, everyone's a bit… norse.

That ignores, of course, that a) people get around b) Vikings really get around, c) there's that word "fantasy" d) there are dragons, c'mon.

Well, in a conversation for  Coast-To-Coast Comic-Con, writer of the comic book series How To Train Your Dragon, Richard Hamilton talked about how the series will be including "dragon eggs as well as Easter eggs, the characters' past, expanding on minor characters" as well as looking at greater diversity for the cast of characters.
