As the mother of two boys (aged 11 and 9), I can only sympathise with Frigg, and be grateful I’ve only got the two, and not five!
They were making me crazy today! No school here, and I took the day off to be home with them since my mom (aka regular babysitter) had a doctor’s appointment.
Figuring how Loki has already had a couple of kids (on both sides of the figurative fence), thats just funny as hell (No pun intended).
Don’t think for a minute boys have a monopoly on the crazy driving. My girls know all the buttons by now, and push them daily. I have three children: two girls n a 18 month old boy. Guess who’s learning from the masters?
I am wondering who brought home the Valkyrie, Höd, or Balder? And Odin is quite mean, I bet he looked at his calender first an saw the many appointments and just needed an excuse to go
Oh man. This week, my wife had to go to Miami for her work so I’m handling the kids by myself until then. Where can I get a Spear of Valaskjalf? Would a carpet steam cleaner work instead of a mop?
that was a good one today! i have just my 6 year old daughter but there are days she is obsessed with being a valkarie…(she loves the norse mytholigy stories i tell her)…i worry she will break her mom. lol
It depends on how much mead you drink before
The question of who brought in the valkyrie bugs me as well.
Good start to the storyline, guys. Reminds me a lot of me and my brother when we were kids. Kinda surprised Mom never used a mop as a spear to fend us off . . .
Awesome this is gonna be good
As a father with two Danish sons and a Danish wife…I can assure you …ONE, he was the one helping with ALL their Projects…TWO, he checked the calender before leaving…THREE is watching and laughing and drinkinking (sic) (or is that “hic”) from a safe distance…and FOUR, there is no such thing as a “safe” distance when a Frigg avatar has her mead on!
“Do we have a replacement Dad?”
“We’ve got Jack Daniels…”
Replacement schmeplacement! Just get that mead helmet!
It took me three days but I went through the entire archives. I love what you’ve done with Hod, he has always been my favorite Norse God and you have him so active, the Norse Force Hods were awesome (liked the evil one best) and I like the 3 bar panel Hod’s Comic much better than the first 4 panel ones (though all of them are hilarious).
The art is amazing and the characters have great personalities and are just fun to watch. The writing is fanatstic and I love all the detailed storylines. This is an awesome comic and I can’t wait to see more. Keep up the good work.
lol, I don’t have kids so I can’t sympathize with all you parents out there… but I can imagine. Poor Frigg
I don’t know a single thing about norse mythology (except that they have to die in many, horribles ways in some ragnarock-thing, but I was seven when I read that, and don’t really remember a single thing.) but this comic it’s hilarious, well-made, have action AND a nice, long, juicy plot, many side-stories and so on… in fact, it’s refreshing to read.
Well, this is just to say “thanks” to the creators.
For this episode in particular: I’d like to know WHO is Eschele (story concept)… and, since I’m a poor, little italian boy, if it’s a female or a male name! (eschilo->eschele?)
You just know Loki is going to have fun messing around with mommy dearest Frigg. And saying that who’s going to save the poor brathallans. Thors hammer, sif’s hair, mistle toe so many things for a trickster to do. And how could Odin forget the mom-tron can overload!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh well can’t wait to see what happens next
On further reflection, it is obvious to me now that Odin got Frigg drunk before he ever left. No sane mother would take on these five without chemical inducement.
The “go be All-Fathery” comment was the clue.
Odin, you will pay for this later. Hel hath no fury, well you know the rest.
@lepnat – Eschele is Jeffery and my daughter. She came up with the idea of “Back-up Dad” when she got confused about Jeff being away (he travels a lot for work). When we explained to her that she couldn’t have had lunch with Jeff at noon, since we had just picked him up from the airport at 3PM, she said she had lunch with “Back-up Dad”.
disturbing: I hope you knew who this “backup dad” was! (guess he wasn’t jack daniels)
@lepnat – I haven’t sought the company of Jack Daniels, Jose Cuervo, Jim Beam, or Johnny Walker since I was single. However, a little Southern Comfort now and again is good for the soul.
*Giggles insanely* I know how Frigg feels. I have five myself. Three girls (15, 13 & 12) and two boys (5 & 6). Good luck to her.
Any mom that can handle more than three has my utmost respect: I thought my third was literally going ot break my sacrum. That was just the delivery, keeping up with them, I swear, requires rocket fuel.
Heh… I’m voting for Hod both bringing home the Valkyrie… AND misplacing his bed. None of the others “talk that posh”. *grins* And… for the win: the line “Mom, Hod’s looking at me funny!” LOLOL!!
Gosh I love you guys…
