Along with seasickness, carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the largely underappreciated occupational hazards of being a Viking. Fortunately, taking a few simple preventive steps can keep you safe from “the ax-man’s curse”. Make sure to relax your grip, take frequent breaks, and maintain good posture when chopping and slaying.

Today is the six year anniversary of Odin and Friends (the site launched on April 1, 2009). There have been some bumps in the road, to be sure, but I’ve managed to produce quite a few comics in that time. I hope you all are enjoying the latest stuff! I’m working hard to get 1-2 new items up every week; relative unemployment is helping for now. I’ve got plenty of ideas for the future, so please keep reading, and if you like what you see, ask the gods to grant me their blessings.

Fehu is the rune for cattle, and also wealth (same thing back in the day, right? Or still the same if you raise beef in Texas). So I’m wishing you all a prosperous new year with lots of cows.
To all you new folks just finding the comic: thanks for stopping by. To check out the comic, I recommend letting fate guide your way by clicking this random comic button. To those of you who like to control things more, check out the archive with over 300 comics!
And to all you veterans of the psychic wars – thanks for continuing to hang around. I’ve been on a pretty big respite, so there hasn’t been much new in a while, but I’m working to change that. I’ve got a lot of scripts produced, so I now I’m working to art them up. And a special thanks to those of you who have emailed me or posted messages asking where the hel I’ve been. All is good. I’m still alive, relatively healthy, and ready to make some more toons!

Heja, Odinites. Got some good news and bad. The good news is that I am now a mead hall owner. No, I didn’t just purchase a bar… my wife and I finally got our act together and purchased a house! The bad news is that I have to take a little break from the cartoon while I get the place in working order and move in. According to the home inspector, the place is “in a state of deferred maintenance,” which means I have a giant list of things to do to before moving in. So Odin and Friends will be on low power for a little bit. But stay tuned! I’m going to try and sneak out a few cartoons here and there while pushing to get back on schedule in about a month or so. And if anyone knows any Norse housewarming rituals, let me know!
