    the one panel Thor says. "Yea even you Hulk" Think it should be YES.

I was trying to blend some of the old Thor-speak with the new, since he still does through out the occasional thee or thou.

    Writing the new speak is almost proper english without contractions as well.

So you think I need to change how I've done Thor so far? I thought I was getting the new speak down okay, but if I'm not I'd rather hear it now so I can fix it.

    I like it so far!

Great! I've got another page done up, and I've fixed up the first a bit; I'll post them when I'm at work, since uploading images on dial-up sucks. ;\)


I just remember JMS saying there wouldn't be "Can't" and "Wouldn't" it would be Cannot and would not.
He said he modeled the new thorspeak after Aragorn in Return of the king.

It's tough to do Really. I've been writing/Drawing a story (third version since 78) that's set in the Viking era using that exact idea too.
It gives the characters an ancient feel not using any newer phrases, or contractions, without having to use Old English or Shakespearean
