Alterism and necromancy are the two schools of magic that have been bad-mouthed and scorned the most by Dominic in the comic's history. While Dominic's dislike for necromancy was reconciled during Around The World, alterism has remained a sour subject for him.
I'm looking forward to next week's comics because, at last, alterism will be put into the spotlight and we'll get some insight as to why Dominic is so freaked out by this largely mysterious school of magic.
Don't expect much more alliterative slang for alterists, though.
That's all from me for now.
Rock on and have a nice weekend!
