Zeus himself wasn't any better at thinking things through where women were concerned either.

But his most outrageous moon-logic plots worked.

yup! sometimes the crazyest things are possable.

It's like Zeus had some kind of brief panic attack every time he tried to connect "I want to have sex with that girl" and "I have now had sex with that girl", so his brain just shat out random things to turn into. Bull! Cuckoo! Swan! Dark cloud! Shower of gold! It was like he got his dating ideas from the fucking Wonder Twins.
CyberSkull 10th Feb 2013, 4:32 PM edit delete reply

He has the power to turn into any girl's secret fetish.

The implications of your suggestion make those myths a lot creepier suddenly . . .
CyberSkull 11th Feb 2013, 12:08 AM edit delete reply

You have to remember, if it isn't creepy, then you are not reading the original version.

And seriously, how does a bull seduce a maiden without something creepy going on with both parties?

THIS !!! the wonderful weaving of words like this are the reason I keep dumpster diving the archives and why this comic works so well...that and the artwork of course :)

Well, Zeus was always thinking with the old thunderbolt.

This is absolutely hilarious. :P

Not only the dialog, but also the posing of the characters. :P

yep shes better than she knows :D

Practical Mythology!
(or: behind every story there is a story...)

[Is that one of those Green bottles?]
Centcomm 10th Feb 2013, 5:17 AM edit delete reply

yes it is. actually me and Diana discussed how to get that shade - she got it right. .. I didnt.
cattservant 10th Feb 2013, 5:43 AM edit delete reply

An idea occurred to me: The City States are pretty much turned inward on themselves, but there must be Outside Forces in place that want to reclaim the Waste and reestablish Rule of Law.
In aid of that, Troll mounted scythe lizard cavalry units with sabertoothed rat packs as trackers and flankers would make a truly intimidating territorial pacification force . (page 271, page 745)
They would be resistant to environmental factors and probably fairly self sufficient as well.

I bet a troop of Troll Cavalry would make a dramatic panorama.
(and an interesting side story too.)

Centcomm 10th Feb 2013, 6:22 AM edit delete reply

yes you are correct there IS a organazation thats dedicated to the wastes .. also roma extends a lot of men and equipment into the wastes and areas to help reclaim it. theres a lot of pieces to this... :D
cattservant 10th Feb 2013, 6:35 AM edit delete reply

Does the Waste have a "native culture" population or is it more a matter of brigands and ne'er-do-wells?
Centcomm 10th Feb 2013, 6:38 AM edit delete reply

There are farmers , mechanics , all kinds there are towns all over the place. it has its own culture just like anything else. its a lot like a high tech old west.
cattservant 10th Feb 2013, 6:51 AM edit delete reply

I was wondering if there was significant cultural conflict as during the Indian Wars of US history. I suppose the Apocalypse pretty much leveled the playing field. And the high tech aspect would tend to be unifying too.
Centcomm 10th Feb 2013, 7:44 AM edit delete reply

There are a lot of conflicts in the wastes most between "new" lifeforms and "mutates" like the trolls and other sentients. the great city states Troy and Sparta tend to stay out of affairs of the wastes while roma capitalizes on it.

A bottle of Bottoms Up (not sure how to do an up arrow in text) and the irrationality of a celestial in love....this, your honor, is why I packed up the kids to go live in the forest!

giggles! .. good answer! :D

"Lord literal..." XDXD
Dragonrider 10th Feb 2013, 8:43 AM edit delete reply

*Smacks Lord Literal upside the head with Mjollnir a couple times* Hey Dummy remember what Hera ties in a knot every time Lord Doohickey over there tries some lame brain shenanigans. Zeus remember you told all of us to warn you when you came up with some half baked idea. Now buy a round for the bar before the waitress calls Hera.
jas 10th Feb 2013, 12:06 PM edit delete reply

This whole page was just beyond awesome! I love Zeus' facepalm and "Lord Literal!" But really, how many of us have had conversations gone awry like this one? (well, except not usually involving crime)
Tokyo Rose 10th Feb 2013, 2:22 PM edit delete reply

You mean other people don't start innocent conversations that end with "and then we flee to another country for political asylum"?
Antonious 10th Feb 2013, 5:18 PM edit delete reply
Mine never have ... yet. I haven't been caught and the statute of limitations is up in a few days on that last escapade.

Any plan in vich hyu lose hyu hat iz a BAD PLAN!!!
Rashala 10th Feb 2013, 6:05 PM edit delete reply

you'd think as lord of the underworld he'd Hear mortals tellign similiar stories of ideas that got them all KILLED and realize...hey maybe this is NOT a smart thing to do?
Dianna Silver 10th Feb 2013, 7:52 PM edit delete reply

. . . Except for one little detail. Hades and Persephone both are immortal. Can't be killed. Whole different perspective there.

Besides, how could it be dangerous? Oh sure, Demeter may have a cow, but she's just being overprotective. Hades is *sure* he can win Persephone over once he gets her out from under Mom's watchful eye.
cattservant 10th Feb 2013, 8:09 PM edit delete reply

He is tall dark and handsome!
Tokyo Rose 10th Feb 2013, 11:04 PM edit delete reply

In one of the conversations that led up to this image sequence, Di described Demeter as "the original helicopter parent".

I could not stop laughing.
Grault 24th Oct 2015, 1:29 AM edit delete reply

Gods can't be killed, except when they *do* get killed. See, for example, each boss god before Zeus. One of them (Cronos?) came out of his dad's head with an axe. I guess it depends which ruleset the gods are playing by at the time.
Thomas 18th Apr 2014, 1:08 PM edit delete reply
Pfff, like Zeus hasn't done this 500 times before.
"Who taught you how to do this stuff"?!

"You, alright! I learned it by watching YOU"!
