Good to see it is not me. I thought Ulfberht swords were some of the strongest of their times.
I am guessing he thinks its a real one but it is a knockoff.

I don't get it?
Is the joke supposed to be that Ulfberht swords are supposed to be super fragile?
Or that he legitimately just tried to kill that guy?

Yes, I suppose the comic makes more sense if you know about Ulfberht swords. They were some of the best swords around in the viking era, which quickly resulted in smiths trying to cash in on their popularity by stamping the name on sub-par swords, proving that bootleg copies aren't a new phenomenon. I hope this clears it up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulfberht_swords

The joke is that it's a knockoff.

Cool comic!

I tried drawing a fun comic strip myself

When I was in college, I used to draw this kind of things in my agenda :



I'd bet we were many on this forum :)

Haha that's pretty funny.  (Tragic, but funny.)

I had a comic strip called "The Blobs" because... well, my drawing skills were pretty limited.  Basically they tried to understand things they encountered in the human world.  I think some of them were pretty funny but sadly lost forever.

Speaking of comic strips that we have. I do a weekly comic strip called 20 Quid Amusements.
There's not much to it. It's just the generic standard fare of two guys talking about games and sometimes other stuff happens. But I think it's pretty good. And I've been doing it for several years now, purely as a hobby.

Here's probably the only one that's relevant to this site, because it's about Maniac Mansion:

Definitely not my best work there. :-[

Not bad at all!  I love the concept of gaming buddies talking about games.  And this particular comic is quite funny.

Thanks for sharing!
