The Beast feeds off unnatural desolation and death, and it would seem that unnatural fear is also on its menu. And by the look on Celesto's face in the last panel, he seems hungry for something, too.
In unrelated news, the fall is traditionally my favorite time of beer (see what I did there?) but it's also become my favorite time of year for my very amateur astronomy. Jupiter, my favorite planet, shines brightly in the night sky just outside my window where I have my telescope parked, so I'm afforded easy views of the king of the planets. Truth be told, the whole reason I got a telescope in the first place was to look at Jupiter and its moons.
With great beers and great skies, I'm a very happy nerd.
That's all from me for now.
