  The biggest curse ever laid on Vikings since they established themselves in Minnesota.

  Uh, why is this in the order?

  My guess? An appearance by Odin (pg 4 pn 4 flashback)

  Russ is right. It's because of Odin appearance

  'Nuff Said - "What's goin' on here? Are you shootin' a costume movie? Or what?-Modern Gundar

  Costume movie? It'sthe live action Gundar the Barbarian. I mean Gundar the Viking. Odd story but it is short and yes Odin makes his presence known in the order.

  It was short... and it wasn't terrible... but there was nothing to get my interest in the slightest.

  Those Vikings were really rocking those fur underpants. On a tropical island no less!

  Of all the comics I have read, this was the most recent.

  Making a random captain's curse come true - yeah, seems like the sort of thing Odin would do when he's not busy torturing Thor.

  WTF Odin?! The crew members wouldn't just sit there and let Gundar murder them, so you cursed them to millenia upon a desert isle? The hell is wrong with you old man? You are THE worst all seeing entity there is.
That "twist" was pathetic too. Obvious from page 1.

  Yeah, Odin's appearance and curse were the only things amusing about this. And I didn't see the twist. I kinda expected it to be the original Gundar, somehow caught up in his own curse, so shaved his beard to throw his crew off-track before undoing the curse.

  Given that they've been alive all these centuries, their original clothing had probably long since deteriorated, leading them to resort to making clothing of the local fauna.

  Why did I read this horrible thing? Oh, because I recently Favorited Steve Ditko. Yeah. One star.
