Meet Simon (blond guy), a character so old I don't even know when I made him up. He's inspired by a dream i had many years ago, so while he isn't music inspired, he somehow fits into this universe.
He's either a very very powerful wizard or a demigod. No one knows. All they care about is not angering him and leaving him alone in his palace on a mountain. Not that they need to worry because he's very difficult to annoy and just wants to slack off with his huge harem of nymphs. But despite this harem he actually has an unexplainable power over men. It's not something he does on purpose, but neither is it an opportunity he'll miss. Any man who ventures into Simon's palace won't be leaving with his straightness intact.
Occasionally people will contact him in the hopes of getting him to fight on their side in a war, or just for a battle. He's so powerful it comes close to cheating to use him, but not everyone plays fair. It is only when absolute necessary though, because of the effect he'll have on the soldiers, and endless jokes will be made about a winning army that used Simon.
But he isn't all powerful. His strange power doesn't work on Lucious because nothing turns Lucious on, asexual as he is. So if anyone wants to make deals with Simon, they send Lucious (They could try a woman, but she might find him sexy anyway). This has resulted in a friendship between them, and Lucious can often be seen by Simon's side in battles.
Angeli hates Simon though, because she has lost a few of her loves to him. Never mind those relationships were doomed anyway.
Yes, places for angry lesbians to beat the hell out of any willing men did indeed exist in Berlin after WW1. And they were quite popular because the tourists came to try new things, so why not get whipped by a lesbian?
Don't expect this comic to get updated too often, because while I enjoy the story it's a pain to draw.
Random Ęsir god, Vanir goddess, and Jotun. They're not supposed to look like any specific people from the Eddas.
This is not meant to be an illustration of how they are usually portrayed, but simply how they look in my mind after having read about the old Norse religion and the many speculations surrounding it.
The Ęsir represent culture, tamed nature, order, and the male sex. They were at the very top of the godly hierarchy, so I put him in blue which was the color of the rich because it was very expensive to make.
We know very little about the Vanir, but because the only Vanir with any significant roles in the Eddas are fertility gods, they are considered to be connected with fertility. This is why I have started drawing them more or less plump because classic fertility statues are often depicted so. It used to be a common belief that they represented an older religion, but that has since been dismissed by most experts. Still the idea lingered with me, so I tend to portray them more shamanic looking.
Finally a Jotun. Even though they were the oldest and wisest of the races, they were the lowest in the hierarchy, which is why I have given him clothes with the lightest colors. In Viking culture you could tell a person's place in the social hierarchy by how dark their clothes were, from the rich blue, to the slaves' white. Jotuns represented chaos, wild nature, magic, and the female sex. Their roles as chaos and femininity gods can be seen by how male Jotuns were able to give birth. The first jotun Ymir gave birth in his sleep, Loki birthed quite a few children (most as a woman, but also as a man), and Odin who was king of the Ęsir but originally a Jotun himself, also birthed children in the form of a woman. Men who could shapeshift into women was a special Jotun ability.
The rainbow in the background is of course Bifrost, the bridge that connected the worlds.
I swear, it's The Hobbit that has made me want to draw so much fantasy lately.
This time a barbarian woman sleeping against a tree with two human men. I don't have a story behind this yet, so any suggestions as to what is going on, how they ended up like this, or the relationships between the characters?
I hope it's obvious that this is NOT how things went down.
Only parts that are somewhat true: Bohr and Einstein were both rivals who strongly disagreed, but also held each other in high regard and loved having long discussions because they considered each other equals.
Bohr created the theory that made the atomic bomb possible, which he felt bad about because he had hoped it would be for peaceful use only. He somewhat helped in the Manhattan Project but was quoted for saying "That is why I went to America. They didn't need my help in making the atom bomb" and only acted as consultant. Russians tried to get him to tell how the bomb was made, but he didn't know.
Einstein told Roosevelt that he had to make the bomb in case Hitler was making one too, but it would probably have happened even if Einstein had said nothing.
For the rest of his life Bohr tried to get US and UK to share the atomic secrets, but Churchill was very much against it and said Bohr should be locked up.
I just wanted to play around with style, shadow and color, and ended up drawing an overly patriotic picture of Agent 250.
Most of the characters in the Niels comics are Americans (Except Niels, 300, Rose, and Magnus of course), but 250 is by far the most American American out of all of them, and in many ways he is what the media from his youth painted as the perfect American man: A patriotic Christian who is fighting for his country.
And he does think of himself as an American. Not as more of an American than his fellow countrymen, but he is very proud of the stars and stripes. He doesn't even care much about where his family originally came from as a lot of Americans do, because this country is were he was born. That he does have a strong interest in Scotsmen is another matter...
None of this is meant to be negative by the way. Being American just means more to him than to most of the other Americans in the comic.
Though he wouldn't wrap himself in the flag any time soon. That's a bit too much even for him.
