What did you do today?

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a good 2012, and have a great 2013!

See you next week. Thanks for reading! <333

Discussion (23) ¬

  1. So glad to see those guys again. Have a great 2013 too :)

    • Thanks! Hopefully it will be awesome. I will make it so!

  2. Ibrahim stop being grumpy! Little stepbrothers don’t understand the concept of researching for fun. But if he tells me a story I will love him forever.

    Also Sarah expect my Tumblr to be filled with hipster Ibrahim by the end of the month. I’m in love.

    • Haha! I look forward to it. XD Ibrahim doesn’t, but oh well.

  3. I like this kid already.

    • Which kid? They’re all kids! Even Ibrahim, the little goober.

  4. this needs to be an animated series right now. just love it

    • Haha, thank you! That would definitely be cool.

      • Can… can I voice-act Hedda? It would be a dream come true.

  5. I meant Ibrahim. No offense to his brothers. :P But he seems like a cool guy. (Doesn’t hurt that I was reading about Sephardic and Muslim scholars in Spain.)

  6. Wheeew! Just blasted through the archives and now in the position of only one update a week. :-( Great stuff, great art, etc. etc.

    • Aw, thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I know the update is slow, but it is what it is.

  7. Plato is serious business

  8. Aw, because there are no good stories in Plato? Isn’t he the one with the tale about the kid who can intuitively do math when properly guided through a dialogue? (Or was that his teacher, Socrates?)

    • Haha, maybe? I have no idea honestly. I just picked Plato because it was a well-known philosopher’s name. >3> If he did write stories I dunno if Ibrahim’s sibs would want to hear them!

      • Oh, gosh, no. I don’t think any of his stories qualify as anything like derring-do — just parables to get people to understand philosophy. Like the story of the cave, or even his written version of Socrates’s death. (Actually, the latter *might* be sort of adventurous — I always loved the idea that Socrates got put in jail because he made himself a philosophical nuisance.)

  9. “No, I’ve been translating Plato.”
    He sounds like he just took a walk or something, no biggie XD

    • Haha! Yeah it’s no big deal for Ibrahim, master of languages, especially old ones!

  10. I was all like where’s his hat in the first panel for a second there.

    Man o man I wonder if his translation is one of the ones that survives!

    • Hahaha, the kids scared it off his head! So evil.

  11. Very nice. I look forward to see how is going to be involved the muslim guy with norse gods. XD
    Actually Plato was quite ignored by Spanish medieval muslims, but they studied Aristotle far more; in fact, Europe culture could read Aristotle’s works thanks to muslims translations by Averroes and Avicenna, the two main muslims phylosophiers in medieval Europe back then.

    • Thank you! I didn’t know that about Plato, I must say. Perhaps that’s why Ibrahim’s translating it, since no one else will! XD
