    You’re still sweating. Apparently dragons sweat.

    since when is Set a snake? Set should be a lean black carnivore with bifurcated tail, squared off ears and a long droopy snout. That is how the Egyptians portrayed him. Noone knows what that animal is supposed to be, but it was the symbol of Set.

    Yeah, sometimes I just don’t care. :)
    I wanted to have a funny little snake in the strip, and for some reason (Cleopatra?) my mind went immediately to Egypt and I thought ‘Set’ was a cute name for him. I did look Set up in my resources and the actual Set was way too convoluted to put in the strip. A comic strip is supposed to be somewhat simple so I had to simplify. He really was one of my first characters, he’s in the first MythTickle strip which you can see in my book along with an explanation.

    Personally I hate snakes, but Set is so cute. Especially with his one little tooth. Reminds me of my little dog Bronco, the one toothed, 3 legged wonder dog. Love today’s strip big brother. ;:^)

    They paved paradise and pit up a parking lot.

    Closest living animal to the symbol of Set would be the Aardvark, actually the only one that even remotely resembles him.
    Snake deities: Wadjet the mother goddess of lower Egypt, represented as a rearing cobra, sometimes with wings, Python the large snske who protected the oracle at Delphi,
    The Midgard [Middle-Earth] serpent of Norse mythology. The Rainbow serpent of the Australian Aboriginal dreamtime, Asclepius, the greek god of healing who’s symbol is a snake, which we still see on pharmaceuticals twined around a staff, The giant serpent who helped in the churning of the sea of milk in Hindu mythology.
