Wow, he’s not much of a winner if a sick Frigg can drag him out by the hair…then again, Frigg is probably a force to be reckoned with even at about 50-60%…
I’m gonna go hide now.
And she didn’t even have to get out the spear.
……Did Frigg just drag Conaan out by the hair of his head? o.0
Doesn’t it always seem that when the villain thinks that a plan “cannot fail”, it is guaranteed to do so?
And if OdinEye got the job, I am sure that he would find that he could not corrupt the kids for a couple reasons.
1. They are already used to Loki as a corruption influence.
2. It is EXTREMELY hard to corrupt kids since that are already “corrupted” just by being kids.
3. The kids already know him and know about him, so everyone, especially Loki, would be “on their guard”. (except Thor, of course. But he just wants to smash stuff anyway.)
After dealing with the kids, OdinEye would be likely to had the job back to Odin and Frigga gladly, make some comment about “I don’t know how you put up with them.”, and leave for a vacation and his next scheme as fast as his tentacles could run.
Actually, I think Children can be the least corrupted, because there less socialized. But that’s just me.
@Wynni, yea my thought was Conan as well when I saw that, I wasn’t quite sure, but you know, Conan the Barbarian. I thought Conan had a sword though.
I agree with you Mark, it’s not like he is truly evil (which Pookah was I believe) and is more of the pissed-off-at-those-who-ruined-my-life kind of villian.
In the future version, it looked like he had mostly given up his ‘evil’ ways.
Pookah was able to corrupt hod because he was badly weakened, plus he was using Hods own powers against himself.
Anyways, yea they already know Odineye quite well.
Just gotta say I’m liking the cleaner lines and compositions better: the layouts are easier to ‘read’.
…his sword was in the shop, mayhap?
You know, ive read this comic since the first month (I wish i could say day 1, but it would be a lie) and this is the cutest i`ve ever seen my favorite goddess. Lower left pannel is absolutely awesome.
I’m so glad that my roommate introduced me to Brat-halla a few months ago. When he did, I was in desperate need of cheering up as I was going through a very rough time. About a week before he e-mailed me a link to Episode 270: Mjollnir Madness – All’s Not Clear, I’d been hospitalized after my (former!) primary care physician nearly killed me – albeit accidentally – and I ended being in the hospital for a week – the week of my birthday, at that! Just prior to that, I’d been in a car wreck (my first in fifteen years of driving!) and had lost a child pre-term (I was twenty-four weeks pregnant). IBrat-halla provided wonderful distraction and lots of laughter, which at that time, I didn’t think I was capable of laughter. Thank all three of you for the time you spend collaborating on something so creative, intelligent, and humorous and bringing mythology to life in a way that I haven’t seen elsewhere.
It’s a bit off-topic, but . . . Jasta, a while back you said something about making Hod plushies . . . *grins* Did you ever embark on creating one? Inquiring minds want to know! ^_^
@(ephemeral): It’s good to hear that Brat-halla has brought a smile back to your face. For my own small part in the creative process, I know I love working on the strip, and I know Jeff and Seth feel the same way and will also be gladdened that it lifted your spirits at a particularly low point.
After all the bad you’ve been through, I hope you have much happier times ahead.
