I knew it!
Way back another comic, The Order of the Stick, mentioned a shrine to Skadi, whose followers were all Rangers and Druids.
Nice to see it come true!
Skadi is the name of a Norse Goddess. ;P
Nice!! How long ago was that strip released?
Almost exactly a month or so. Could be a nod, could be a coincidence.
faiiiirly certain OoTS is talking about that actual Norse goddess Skadi:
but maybe I’m just stating the obvious…..
Skadi is the name of an actual Norse goddess, who also appears in D&D. It could easily be a coincidence.
Also, they mentioned that Skadi – our heroine – is pronounced differently from the Norse Giantess/Goddess. Because it was a plot/joke point.
Woo giant stompy Skadi!
She finally completed her quest I can’t wait to see how this ends in the next pages
Fat-bellied Thork, power woman Skadi is coming for you!
Mrs. Rice, I love your artistic style!
Wow this is awesome! I’ve been reading Skadi since not too long after it launched and its really exciting to see her complete her quest. Really love the design of her Goddess form!!
She is going to be so disappointed when she realises she still doesn’t have a beard.
You realize, of course, that she can rip Thork’s beard out by the roots now. She will then “have” a beard … doesn’t mean she has to wear a beard. This way it’s optional.
What if the thing covering her chest is her beard? The neck piece just cover the part it connects to her face!
after the long quest
i said nice work
I wonder if her ears are still bite-scarred? Could becoming a goddess heal them, or would she make them part of her mythical “style?”
In any case, glad things worked out for Skadi. Wonder what blessing she will bestow on Diseasoid for helping her?
I always wonder why people ask about her ear bite and not, oh, I dunno, THE HUGE CHUNK BITTEN OUT OF HER ASS BY BOTTOM FEEDERS?!?!?!
Because you can see that wound miraculously healed in the very next page. The ear bites remained.
But… where’s her BEARD!?
That’s a good question. Well I guess now that she’s a god she can grow her own.
After the complete failure of Thork to be anything admirable, Skadi doesn’t want his smelly old beard no more.
This is wonderful. I love her outfit. Though top of her head looks funny today. D:
YAASSS! This is everything I’ve been waiting for.
I just realised having Skadi as a good might actually be a really bad idea. We all know how brutal and stupid she can get sometimes.
Don’t worry, fish is good for your brain and just think of all the fish she must have eaten in her quest. Everything will turn out jjjuuuuussttt fine.
As opposed to all the other stupid, brutal deity’s in this universe? 😛
This is how monotheism was created. Skadi killed all the other gods.
I figured/hoped this would happen. Comeuppance approaches.
Let’s just hope she doesn’t annihilate a core concept of reality, and fulfil Metal C0Mmander’s fears 😛
Let the ass-kicking commence!
All worship the goddess of gluttony and perseverance, Skadi!
Welp. I’m proud of you, Skad.
Skadi? Did you shave your beard already?
Absolutely sensational, it’s been signposted for weeks… but it’s STILL fantastic. Diseasoid’s expression while he’s flying through the air is perfect. He simply doesn’t know what to think. 😀
I would never imagine this situation. Now it looks pretty obvious, but because they talked about beards. I did not think that possibility.
Anyway Katie and Luke are not very predictable authors.
(My first comment here. Fan of Skadi since years)
Waiting for the rug to be pulled out from underneath her when Bou points out she ate both her eyes, counting as cannibalism…
Sorry 21, I’ve double checked & Skadi didn’t eat Bou’s eyes. She plucked them out and then threw them (with her tongue stuck out in disgust, which may have been confusing).
She says she ate Bou’s euyes in this comic:
If you look at the two comics below, she definitely ate the eyes. Hence the “Better safe than sorry” meaning it was best to eat the eye just in case it was an actual beast for the quest. The first one because Bou “told her” it was a beast. The second because she thought that was the penalty for eating the first.
I do however think this is a moot point. When she was banished it wasn’t by Thorks law, but rather by the “Laws of their Fathers”, with no mention to Thorks will being a driving force. So, I think we get to enjoy Skadi in all her awesome Goddessness.
True. No reason there can’t be cannibal deities.
giant goddess Skadi is the best Skadi, she will kick some asses.
OMFG! HAHHA Finally Skadi is totally a goddess!
Stuff just got real in here. Hooo boy~!
I love the second panel! Also, Skadi looks really cool. Good job, Katie!
When did her cankles go away?
