One area of research that interests me is the Viking in popular culture. I generally look upon it as an excuse to watch Noggin the Nog and call it research. Anyway, leaving Noggin for now, I thought to point you to some webcomics with a Norse theme. This will be an intermittent series about comics I have encountered and enjoyed, for whatever reasons. If it has a Viking or Norse theme, there is a good chance I shall be interested somewhere along the way!

This week we have Brat-halla. What was Asgard like when the gods were still children? And what did Odin’s eye get up to after it had been plucked out? This comic seeks to answer that question. It is currently on hiatus, but you can go back and read the archives. I think that is worth it.
