Not Norway

Not Norway

Denmark, you asshole.

Historians used to discuss how the Norwegians were treated while Norway was part of Denmark. Were they treated like fellow and equal Danes, or did the Danish nobles suppress the Norwegians people?
Today it’s agreed that it was a mix of both. The Norwegians were treated as fellow and equal Danes, unfortunately the Danes were already being suppressed by the Danish nobles.

Non the less it was obvious who was Denmark’s favourite, and when Denmark lost Norway to Sweden, Denmark’s treatment of Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands suddenly worsened tenfold.

So Denmark did not take the loss of Norway well. Instead of just moving on, he took it out on all the not-Norways left in his house.

How the North works

How the North works

I found this lying unfinished around on my computer, and because I’ve got no comic today you’ll have to do with this.

Being the Dane I am, I of course forgot the Sami People (the Nordic "Indians").

EDIT: Yes, Sweden got Norway later on, but that is not what the bottom picture is about. For many years the Nordics were separated in West-North and East-North. When Sweden got Norway that messed up the separation of West and East and marked Denmark’s decline from power.

The Scariest Ghost Ever

The Scariest Ghost Ever

Greenland showing off his ghost-taming skillz.

The belief in spirits is very much alive in Greenland. If people move into a new house or an office, it’s not unusual to have a shaman come and chase old ghosts and what not out.

It’s a rather sad stereotype in Denmark that Greenlanders are alcoholics, mainly because we usually choose to ignore that the alcohol problem was our fault. We introduced it into a culture that had never had it before and then just let it run wild.

Yes, I’m throwing these comics after you now because I have 10 of them just lying around waiting to get posted. :XD:

They grow up so fast

They grow up so fast

If only Norway and Sweden had known how much trouble Denmark was going to be when he grew up...

Because Denmark is made of sand from Norway, that means we have no natural resources. That is the main reason why Denmark went crazy and was so obsessed with taking over the other Nordic countries.

And you have to be impressed. Look up Scandinavia on a map. Can you even imagine that the tiny little Denmark ended up ruling over Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Greenland, The Faroe Islands and even part of Germany?

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

All the Nordic countries claim that Santa lives within their borders (Sorry that I forgot you, Iceland).

Ever since I was a kid I liked the idea of there being more than one Santa, and I imagined them distributing the work between them and visiting each other in the summer. So no matter where a country believe Santa to live, I think they’re right. :D

The Faroes

The Faroes

Every time I posted a comic that had Greenland in it, quite a few people asked me, ”What about the Faroes?”
Sometimes I would think, “You live in Canada! How the hell would you know about the Faroes?!” :XD:

Well, here he is. Denmark’s other “colony”.
The thing about the Faroes is that Danes usually forget all about them because they’re small and they don’t hate us quite as much as Greenland. In fact, they even voted yes to staying part of Denmark, and it quite upsets them that Denmark doesn’t pay them enough attention.

When Danes do remember there’s a place called the Faroes, we usually remember them for spending our money and then complaining about us when we ask them to pay it back. :XD:

I want oil

I want oil

So there is a spot between Canada and Greenland where there might be oil, and now all the countries around it claim it as their own. Especially America, Russia and yes, tiny little Denmark are being very aggressive about it.

Sweden can’t really get into the fight because he can’t claim that the spot belongs to him, and Norway is pretty relaxed about it, because he already has his own oil. :)

We should be friends

We should be friends

Sweden Denmark and Norway never hates each other more than when we play football. :XD:

I wanted to include Greenland somehow, and then started wondering if Sweden and Norway have any islands where they don't speak Swedish or Norwegian. Sweden doesn’t have any, and Norway just have volcano island, Jan Mayen (Besides Svalbard), where the only humans are Norwegian scientists.
