Once more Epic Monsters is headed for the end times—not of the column, thank heavens, just the world. Without further ado let’s get into it with the first of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Strife!
Today’s Mythological Figures post is a myth from just last century in the Big Apple, a lass so fierce and tenacious (and so well known for headbutting people) that they called her the Goat: Sadie Farrell!
Mythological Figures is tackling a historical figure that had the ninth longest reign over England, a polyglot whose rise to power was positively filled with intrigue, subterfuge, and uncertainty: Elizabeth I!
It’s been too long since this column last delved into Sumerian mythology so today Epic Monsters is tackling a weapon like no other. This mace is sentient, it flies, it changes shape, Ninurta used it to kill a demon—it’s Sharur!
Alright folks we’re doing it. We’re going there. It’s happening. Epic Monsters is finally tackling a subject you’ve been asking for since the column started. It’s time for old one-eye, the half-blinded god, master of the Norse pantheon and the Allfather: Odin!
Break out the bugle and battle standard because today in Mythological Figures we’re going a century and a half back to post-Civil War America, exploring the history of an incredibly brave woman named Cathay Williams.
