Songdog wrote:I'm not sure how entirely accurate their mythology is. Norse mythology is my favorite branch, and I'm glad to see some one using it. It's obvious they've read up on their mythology, but it's been distilled a bit.

For example, Skoll and Hati, sons of Fenris, were not 'shepherds' of sun and moon. Akreon made it sound like they were benevolent deities with a sacred duty, when in truth they chased the sun and moon because they were trying to eat the sun and moon. At Ragnorak, they don't stop chasing sun and moon, they finally catch them and eat them, thus ensuring the three year winter.

One thing that always bugged me is that they made up a rune. Their characters are based off of the Elder Futhark runes, yet 'Iki' is not a rune. On their website, under cast, they make up a runic letter. I understand that they're taking creative liberty and that this isn't the retelling of Ragnorak, maybe it's just because I'm very into Runes and get annoyed when people mess them up.


Don't get me wrong, I very much enjoy Off White. I like that they use realistic wolf colors and all. But my biggest problem is the whole Good/Evil thing. I suppose this could just be a basic tribute to Mythology, but in Norse Mythology, they didn't really have "good" and "evil". That was one thing that was different about Norse mythology in that there wasn't good and bad


I don't think Akreon is trying to stay super-close to the base mythology.... more of a creative license.

I know the comic, I've read the comic, I love the comic.
Yes, it can be a bit annoying when humans are portrayed as evil, but sometimes in the comic they are shown to not be totally be pre-occupied with making wolves extinct. Plus Seven is hunting the wolves to find the white spirit to try and save the humans, so it's not as if she's a sadistic cruel hunter, right?
Also- the black spirit in the comic, as far as I have seen, is not "evil". The white and black spirits are both supposed to keep the balance in their species. Not good vs. evil. Even the black spirit character doesn't seem outright evil, despite his sinister appearance.

EDIT: Sorry, I spelt 'as' wrong and it came out as a curse word, fixed. ._.

I've been reading this comic for ages now, and I have to say that I love they're drawing abilities and the amount of effort and detail they put into the comic.
Also, if you browse DeviantART you are sure to come across some more comics, such as BBA.

I really like Off-White. I heard about it when I watched a video on you tube about it :D . It has great artwork!
We run across the plains of the blazing sun
We run with our glowing pelts in the flowing wind
We play on the swaying grass
We stand near a soaring eagle
We howl to the starry night
We are wolves, born to be free
