It's not common knowledge that Anubis, the Egyptian god of death, and Loki, that Nordic troublemaker, are drinking buddies. In Anubis's off hours, he meets his pal at a little tavern inside a world that belongs to neither the Norse or Egyptian pantheons (Loki, of course, is never 'working' himself). They throw back a few brews while trading one-liners and hassling the mortals.
Here, however, Anubis has found himself forced to dress up in his 'official' attire and approach the gods of this other world to ensure the safety of his favorite drinking establishment. Loki comes along, of course, but Anubis encourages him to keep quiet by jabbing his staff into the trickster's foot.
Anubis later insisted that this was an accident, but Loki will get him back, you better believe it.
A happy little ball-point pen piece I did on my lunch hour. Props to Tara K Labus, as usual, for her interpretation of Loki. :)
