I don’t think Morrigan’s army was ready for this kind of “opposition”.

Thatta girl, Sif! Gee – did anyone see that coming? Anyone? (jc, jasta, …)
why was half of the strip a closeup of thor drooling though?
What do you think motivated Sif to “go postal”?
@smjjames – Hehe, why is he drooling yet completely oblivious to the warrior women lying unconscious at his feet? Maybe he’s focused on something (someone) else…
LOLOL!! OK, I think it just totally rocks that Sif’s outcry is edged in PINK… what a cool detail…
Aww–the boobies got bleeped. *grins* Yes, I know, you have to…
@ mcubedb: Welll… I had a feeling the girl wasn’t gonna be happy about any reaction among her guys–but this just rocks. They’re starin’ and droolin’ and she’s kickin’ butt and slicin’ flesh… whottawoman…
Looks like they’d better come to her aid though, there’s a couple of Celtic babes sneakin’ up at twelve o’clock high…
Ohh Yesss! I Love Sif!
@ Jasta: The boobies got bleeped? I really thought Jeffery was just giving her a nice, stylish bandau to wear. How disappointing…
Methinks Thors interest in her is growing by leaps & bounds – or hacks & slashes, at least.
Morrigan should have known herself , it’s not like she wasn’t watching the Brats progress. . . Hell Hath No Fury Like Sif When She Sees Competition . . . .
@Jasta and JC, some of the fans are younger. A few parents share this with their kids and have done so since the start.
@ Rayna: I understand and appreciate his self-restraint. My wife and sons are also readers and I was not criticizing the lack of “visable feminine endowments”, but rather commenting on the black bar’s resemblance (if you get all squinty eyed and tilt your head…just…so…) to a bandeau.
And isn’t it wonderful how even in the midst of Sif’s Melee, the boys are still stunned in place – very Xanthian.
I love it, Methinks the stunned started because of bare “wimmen ‘n’ weapons” and is now droolage over a Sif gone posta. I can see it now “Man, did you see how Sif hacked that last one?” “She has an admirable Rap shot” rofl. I ‘m loving it.
Xanthian? Do you mean that Sif has flashed a bit of pink panty? Because in Xanth, nude women are of no interest at all – it takes panties to make men freak out. But that drat Adult Conspiracy to Keep Interesting Things From Children prevents me from telling you why… smallfry might be reading.
Great work, guys! Can’t wait until tomorrow!
Down with the censor bar! I think a more creative positioning of limbs (the subject’s or someone else’s) would have done the trick without resorting to the black bar.
@ Rayna: Oh, I completely understand and empathize; I share the strip with my son and several Norse-fanatic nieces & nephews, and until they’re old enough, “none of that!” I appreciate the effort you all go to with the strip and its sensibilities–and those of your readers. Rock on, and thanks!
A hundred naked elves? With woad paint? Liking this so far…
Curse you, foul censorship!
Ah, the Janet Jackson At The Superbowl syndrome even applies to comics… that black bar is pretty intrusive and ugly, though. Sureyl if bared female nipples are such a big deal, it could have been remodelled as a bra top or Valkyrie-like chest armour, something in context? Although in history, myth and legend, Celtic women did fight naked, like their men… so there’s a censorship problem.
Bloody good research, though! I’ hoping when the Morrigan enters the story, we might have, say, Sif knocking her ocld, then turning away, dusting her hands , only to hese a “hem, HEM!” fro behind her to see Macha and Badhbh standing there, politely reminding her “I’m a triple goddess – you have the THREE of me to deal with, y’wee Scandiwegian gobshite”!”
