The vikings used bones strapped to their feet to ice skate, and also probably had a pole that they would use to push themselves along the ice. However you won’t be seeing historically accurate ice skating here because I do what I want.
THANKS SO MUCH to everyone who came to see me at SPX! Got a lot of comments about doing a second book, so maybe I’ll start seriously thinking on that next. It will mean a hiatus from the comic, but perhaps I can post up the bonus Loki comic as a buffer. I’ll probably do some bonus stuff for Patrons too. Something to think about!
Thanks for reading! See you next week!
Someone mentioned I haven’t updated the regular part of the blog for TMK in a while and boy are they right! To be honest not much has happened to me that would affect TMK but I do have some plugs!
My Patreon is still going! You can pledge as little as a dollar per page to get rewards, and even see the pages as soon as they’re done! (Patrons can already see next week’s page, for example). Even though I’m not doing TMK full-time, every little bit helps!
TMK has a store! If you want to buy a physical copy of Volume One, and some other goodies, please check it out!
In non-TMK stuff, I recently caught up on a manga called Vinland Saga. It’s about…well, vikings. If you like TMK at all, you will love Vinland Saga. Trust me. Its success in the states depends on the sales of the upcoming volumes being released (I’ve already pre-ordered one of them), so if you think you’d like it (and if you enjoy TMK you will), please consider getting it through legitimate means (including your local library!). Kodansha gives it a very nice hardback treatment with two volumes in one, so it’s worth it. BUT a word of warning: it’s…violent. It’s rated Older Teen for a reason so just be aware of that. But it’s so good, ugh, I want more.
UH WELL that’s it I guess! Oh yeah I’m also looking to do more conventions! I applied to WonderCon and have my eye on a couple others but I’m open to more. If you guys know of any conventions that are especially welcoming to webcomics/indie stuff, please let me know! Super big cons like SDCC (and NYCC) don’t seem to be great for webcomics, but I know there are more out there! Bonuses for east coast cons, hahaha.
Thanks for reading!!
