Shield Biters

Shield Biters

Thursday — October 5th, 2017

From the Ynglinga Saga:

“… his men went without mailcoats, and were as frantic as dogs or wolves; they bit their shields and were as strong as bears or boars; they slew men but neither fire nor iron could hurt them. This is known as ‘running berserk’.”

Nothing about any condiments here, but I prefer mine with wild mustard! The only thing more dangerous than an enraged berserker is a hungry one.

Vikings Take the Window Seat

Odin AirplaneDon’t know about you, but I always try and take the window seat while flying. Amazing what you can see out there if you keep your eyes open. Even if you don’t see the Allfather on his eight-legged steed galloping past the window, you can see his handiwork in the mountains and oceans below. It’s much more interesting, not to mention healthy for the soul, to gaze out the window and marvel at the beauty of Midgard, instead of watching whatever drivel is playing on that little screen in the back of the seat in front of you. Also, if you happen to be flying over the ocean, you can stare at that endless blue and contemplate how your Viking ancestors made the same trip over 1000 years ago – in longships!

Turn on the Mead Tap

Thor AnniversaryToday 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. :)
