A Big F You

A Big F You

Denmark really did put Greenland through a lot of shit and fucked everything up like you wouldn't believe, and today Greenland has the highest number of suicides of any country (They weren't on the list for a long time because they were counted as part of Denmark).

The girl at the end is Sami (I know, I keep changing her design, but I think I'm finally happy with it) the indigenous people of Scandinavia. They were horribly treated by Sweden and Norway and, like Greenlanders, are still subjected to ridicule, so it's no wonder they didn't adopt the Scandinavian Cross either.

Halloween 2015

Halloween 2015

Once again Halloween is upon us, and I'll never pass up an opportunity to draw these guys in costumes.

Denmark's costume is a reference to last week's comic.

Small Talk

Small Talk

Every time I make a comic about Finnish saunas I'm told it's a running joke in Finland that Finns only make small talk in saunas.

Too hot for this world

Too hot for this world

Heat makes the Nordics a little weird in the head, unless their country HAS LAVA COMING OUT OF EVERY HOLE MOTHERFLIPPING ICELAND!!!

The Faroe Islands are possibly the coldest of the countries all year round, so he really doesn't handle heat well.

Great Concern

There's no story behind this one. I just felt like drawing a slice of life comic about the assholery the Nordic characters subject each other to.

Auroras can be quite serious business up here in the north, especially because some have more than others.

New Year 2014-2015

New Year 2014-2015

Happy New Year everyone! May the next 12 months (and the rest of your life) be filled with all the things you don't necessarily want but are good for you!

In Denmark it's a tradition to jump from a chair (or anything really) right before midnight so that you set off in the old year and land on the ground in the new year for good luck.

When this was first explained to me as a child, I though it meant you could jump whenever and skip ahead to New Year if only you knew the right way to do it.

Christmas Kitten

Christmas Kitten

You get an early Christmas comic this year because I'm leaving for the holidays and won't get much internet time.

This creature is also known as the Yule Cat, but I thought Christmas Cat sounded funnier.
