Good Goddamn Question
September 12th, 2010 - Ian Struckhoff
Here's the thing. Like their "father" Odin, the ravens Huginn and Muninn can be hard to pin down. One thing you can say is that they can each, in their own way, be a bit of a bastard.
you had spent the last few thousand years spending all night every
night flying in the form of a raven over the beautiful but harsh land
of Asgard, and every night in the body of some stupid human exploring
the frankly boring world of Midgard-- Earth.
Then imagine that something changes, and you keep showing up in places that don't make any sense. If you're Huginn, you'll try to figure it out. If you're Muninn,
you'll probably swear about it-- if you ever work out that it's
unusual. From there, the two can put their heads together, and who
knows what happens next.
Huginn & Muninn is a comic book I'm writing, illustrated by Jonathan Wyke.
It is based on some ancient Norse myths, by way of a series of stories
and photos that I have been working on for the last decade. We think
it's going to be fairly unique. The first story arc, Blood Brothers, is
the twin ravens' chance to figure out what the hell is happening--
hopefully not too late.
