    It's an art mistake. Fixed now.

    I often draw comic panels out of order based on what I feel like doing first or last, whether that's due to mood or difficulty or what have you. In this case, I drew those end panels early on, but I didn't decide she was going to lose her axe until I drew the overhead-shot panel and decided I wanted the axe at the bottom to illustrate the distance down. I didn't notice the axe was still in the end shot afterwards.

    Considering we have a view of the hole under Sigdi when Hoskin grabs her arm and that the other dwarf is not seen falling, she's most likely on the other side of the bridge.

    The bet isn't actually between Thor and Hel. It's between Loki and Hel, about Thor. He can't say no. All he can do is try to thwart Hel.

    In panel 9, she seems to be falling towards the 'down' half of the broken bridge behind the worm's head.

    Which (from what we've seen), he tries as much as possible.

    In that case, it seems as though no dwarves were killed in the breaking of that bridge.

    Huh, so it probably wasn't intended to be ambiguous, I'm just kind of bad at parsing 2.5-dimensional perspective.

    Nope, don't see that at all. Even without knowing that a wonderful afterlife is waiting, I'd still rather die quickly and doing something worthwhile than slowly degenerating from old age. If you know for a fact that Valhalla is waiting, that just removes the fear of what comes after.

    I am reminded of all the things Tolkien wrote about the downfall of Numenor - the people there went from viewing death as the gift at the end of a life well-lived to a thing to be feared, and clung to life with their minds and bodies decaying, long after their proper time to have passed. That was the opening Sauron used to corrupt and destroy them.

    Pretty sure it is. Though, my guess would be that both parties would have to agree beforehand on wether the duel is supposed to be to the death.

    Sure, if you are thrown by your ennemy as we see here. At least that's what Thor would argue.

    No, it's explictly between Hel and Thor as coined by Loki.

    "Literally" meaning "figuratively" is not modern. It's use in that sense can be tracked to at least Dickens. It is also hardly unique - enough words exist in English language that are their own antonyms that they exist as their own category: Janus words.

    The problem is that if "literally" means something other than literally, then there's no way in English to convey that you actually mean literally.

    Modern or not, that use of "literally" should go to Hel. Should literally go to Hel, even.

    No, the problem is that people like to tell tall tales and exaggerate. That there is no word that only means literally, despite there being at least three that can mean it sometimes, but can also mean figuratively (truly, totally, literally) is indicative that human nature is what it is, and that there is nothing language can come up with that won't almost immediately be used to aggrandise a story in a way that makes it obvious the statement was figurative.

    Also, it is hardly the only language feature English lacks. Clusivity would be nice, for example. And as things go, it's hardly the worst. Certainly not bad enough to literally or figuratively condemn it to Hel.

    The problem with having to die heroically is that if you're too good a fighter, you'll never find someone that can kill you. "Ah ****, he died of a heartache, so he's going to hell..." "But he killed a HUNDRED men by himself!" "Nope, hell." Seems a bit unfair.

    To be fair here, the entire bet seems a bit unfair. That said, of course, it's a D&D world, I'm pretty sure you can find something to kill you if you're really looking.

    I know that its weaved by story logic, but Kandro must have been pretty high level to hit a 35 AC twice and bypass the DR (tho his axe might have been magic.)

    The link to Thor fighting Hel over a splinter made me wonder if the level of heroism required for a "honorable" death is in the eye of the demised.

    Awesome comic, I check the website probably twice a day for updates. (Then I skulk the forums for a laugh)

    Yeah, it hit me, reading the comic that this look a lot like a species-wide, lighter and sillier take on the Slayer Cult.


    The resemblances are so few that I doubt there's any link between the two (besides the common inspiration of the whole "die in battle" thing Vikings had going on), but I wonder if the Giant played Warhammer Fantasy.

    The fight may be lost, but as long as any of us are still alive, it's not over.

    Also, the day I lack the will to fight for lost causes is the day I lack the will to get out of bed in the morning.

    We are all in a hopeless fight against entropy, against time, against the basic facts of existence, and against that seductive path of least resistance, and guess what? The fact that the game is rigged hasn't stopped us from trying to win, or trying to lose as well as possible (if the fight was lost so long ago, then it means people have been willing to keep up the fight for so many years). I count that a victory, if a very small one.

    We are all in a hopeless fight against entropy, against time, against the basic facts of existence, and against that seductive path of least resistance, and guess what? The fact that the game is rigged hasn't stopped us from trying to win, or trying to lose as well as possible (if the fight was lost so long ago, then it means people have been willing to keep up the fight for so many years). I count that a victory, if a very small one.

    I believe a dwarf would prefer to die under the Hills of Prescriptivism than over the Plains of Descriptivism...

    Each one of us, alone, is but a drop in the sea
    Our powers pale compared with the great heroes
    Our battles donít hit theheadlines or shake the earth
    But they are few, canít be everywhere, and we, many
    So, when the world or universe needs saving, they come
    But when people needs saving, we are the ones to appear
    We're underdogs, but we rise up to the challenge to be heroes.

    Their skin tones are different, so I'm not sure they are. They do both seem to be apprenticing under Janna (which is misspelled "Jenna" in this strip, unless I'm interpreting all of this wrong).
