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.

Sweden has his moments http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1q5P6rsubQ :D

EDIT: Apparently it's some kind of stunt. Here's a Danish cop dancing to the same music http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_w6pQ5uhDZc :XD:

Sleepover at Iceland's

Thanks to Hekla, the gate to hell, Iceland is used to hell-spawn invading his house in the night. Nothing to get worked up over.

Iceland

Iceland

After more than a year I’m finally finally starting to figure Iceland’s character out, and it feels so goooood.

He’s a genuinely nice guy who hides a rather disturbing mind. But living so close to the gateway to Hell, Hekla, will do that to you. :D

Iceland collects penises http://www.phallus.is/

Ever since I started making this comic people have asked me if I was going to draw something with the phallus museum. I didn’t know what to do with it, until it was suggested that it had something to do with Iceland’s small...population.

So I swear, I’m not out to get the Icelanders. :XD:

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.

Child of the Night

Throughout the world Romania have two stereotypes: Vampires and thieving gipsies.

So of course Romania is a vampire who would rather steal your purse than drink your blood. Yes, I know that makes me a horrible person. :XD:

And yes, that is Sister England. Yes, I know you English people envisioned her differently, but this is the kind of women we see in your TV series and movies, so this is what she looks like. :D

Oh how often I have been asked by Estonians, “Where is Estonia? We’re a Nordic country too!”

Problem is, the other Nordics doesn’t think so. :XD:

I asked around what the stereotypes for the Baltic countries were, and the overall answer was, “Very depressed people who wear grey and live in grey houses”

Estonia have a good relationship with Finland, which is why he doesn’t hide, but he doesn’t consider her a Nordic either which is why he doesn’t let her in. The Finland’ish hat is because Estonians are seen as being very much like Finns by the other Baltics.

Drama Bear

Drama Bear

OH THE DRAMA!!!

A few days ago a pair of Norwegians were attacked by a polar bear while they were sleeping in their tent. They were supposed to be the first tourists on a new rout on one of Norway’s more famous islands, Svalbard.

My first thought when seeing that on the news was, "Well Norway, seems like not even you can be friends with all animals..." :D

And don't worry. While one of the guys got hurt quite a bit, they both survived. :)
