Today's comic draws heavily on two separate but related conversations I had with some old Jehovah's Witness pals when I mentioned I was reading the Necronomicon. I guess it is much more plausible that I was dabbling with dark magicks than mentioning the latest bit of fiction that I was reading.
Based solely off the title of a book (although I will admit is famous in pop-culture) grand assumptions were made. Even when I separated myth from fact in the course of conversation the implausible still seemed more plausible to my pals. The mental gymnastics involved in such thought processes are Olympic class and I find them fascinating.
