Chapter 7 | Page 1

On the road again! Or…on the sea again! Whatever.

Here’s the deal! This weekend and the next I’ll be out of town at the rivah, but there will be a page next week! The week after that, I’m not sure about, so I wanted to try another installment of “Ask the Characters!” Basically all you have to do is leave a comment with a question for a character, and I’ll do a little sketch response! I’ve done this twice before with questions for Loki and Coal, and you can see them in the Extras section if you want. If you asked a question a while ago but I didn’t answer, feel free to ask it again! And you can ask for any character that’s already been introduced.

And if I don’t get any questions I’ll just put up a doodle or something. Doodles are fun!

Thanks everyone! See you next week! :D

Discussion (35) ¬

  1. Rollo’s smile makes me all the more anxious for the day Hedda discovers/is told about the living ship. XD

    • Haha! You might be waiting a while. XD

  2. What does Coal think of his new eyes, now that he knows about them? :D

    • Good question! He’ll probably avoid mirrors from now on.

      • good thing they were rare in that era. But he might want to avoid still water, too.

  3. I have a question for the dragon (serpent?) figurehead:

    “IsnĀ“t it boring to always play second fiddle (well, third, really) to a crazy god and bratty undead kid?”

    • A question for Rollo? That’s awesome. Thanks!

  4. On the whale-road, sail-road, swan-road…

    Rollo: awwwww. If he were any prouder his sternpost would be wagging.

    • Hahaha! Rollo is certainly very dog-like. Probably has a happy little wake behind him.

  5. Rollo’s all “Sit on my face and tell me that you love me.”

    • Hahaha! He will love anyone that sits on him. <3

  6. I love Coal in that last panel, so cute! Also, I have a question for Coal: Hedda’s pretty, don’t you think ;)

    • Thanks! And that’s a good question. ;D

  7. I just love that Rollo’s so happy to have Coal sitting on him. :)

    • Rollo is happy Coal is near! He’s like a dog.

  8. A ship walks into a doctor’s office, with a Viking stuck to his head. The doctor says, “Let me guess. You want to know how to get that Viking off your head?”

    The Viking says, “No, I want to know how to get this ship off of my ass.”

    • Hahaha, well that’s a joke! I guess!

  9. You know, Coal couldn’t get any farther away without falling into the sea if he tried. . . .

    • Haha, exactly. Though I guess he could climb up the mast if he felt like it. XD

  10. Hi. I’ve been following TMK for a while, and I’m loving it so far. Your art style is simply stunning and, above all, delightfully original. Keep this up!

    I bet she’s going to be asking about Rollo. After all, his expression has changed rather startlingly.

    • Aw, thank you so much! I love when lurkers comment. :D I will certainly do my best to keep on keeping on!

  11. Loki: Out of you and Odin, who would win a a competition of general deceit, trickery and all round underhandedness?

    Coal: If you could choose between Skofnung and Tyrfing, which would you pick, and why?

  12. I have a question for Loki: How long do you think it will be before Coal and Hedda get together?

    And one for Sigyn: How did you and Loki get together? And you don’t mind his… checkered past?

    • Good questions too! Though they’re both a bit spoilery so I dunno if I can really answer them. XD

  13. Rollo is by far the most smartest and well thought out character and is a cutie patootie.

    • Haha! Sounds like the whole comic should just be about him, then! A comic where all that happens is Rollo boating around.

  14. Yes! A Rolloboating comic!
    I would probably like TMK better, though. Maybe a mini-comic?

    • Haha! Maybeeeeee. XD It’d be fun to figure out anyway.

  15. Dear Hedda what do you think of your current situation?
    And also, EEEEH! Rollo sqeeu!!!

    • Haha! Good question! Glad you like Rollo too. ;3

  16. Coal looks cute at the last panel ;)

  17. Next text bubble : who’s sailing the ship?

    • Haha, good question! Luckily it’s not one to really worry about.
