Leaves of Yggdrasil

I recently came across a new comic (available in print and on the web) called Leaves of Yggdrasil by Joe McGlone. So far, only the initial part of the series has appeared, and it introduces a young woman who is revealed as a daughter of Odin and granted three gifts by her father and, in the end, the keeping of his ravens. There are some references here to Ragnarok, but no indications of how the mythological material will feature in future storylines.
