Yes, I’m rereading Digger.
The birth of new gods
Ursula Vernon recently mentioned that this article is a strong part of the basis for the myth of the Black Mother and the Good Man in Digger (which if you aren’t reading, you should. Pony up the $3 for the archive, you won’t regret it.) The fact that these children are developing their own religion on the fly is fascinating enough, but to see the darkness inherent in it really says a lot about where we’ve left our homeless families — and what we think of ourselves as a people. There’s still hope, but we have so much work to do.
Down Squash, Down!
Oh, and this Digger* made me giggle.
subscription required most of the time, sorry. but it’s worth the money!
More Interesting Comics
A few interesting comics:
- Since I finally saw Star Wars III last night, this comic is really funny :) Make sure to note the date of the comic.
- The Digger archives are free for a limited time [edit: link updated to free always] – the art alone makes this one worthwhile.
