Catching up. April 17, 2013 Posted by Mookie
The city I call home is still recovering from Monday's terrible attack. Keep the people of Boston in your thoughts, if you can, and here are some ways you can help.

It's unfortunate that this moment in the story comes so near Monday's tragedy here in Boston. Frankly, it feels weird to showcase an explosion in today's comic. The last few strips have been leading up to this, and what's happening here isn't related to the bombings... but there's still a guilty ache in my chest.

In regards to yesterday's comic, since there wasn't a proper news post to go along with it, here's a quick reminder of the identities of the ghostly figures Rilian saw moments before he sacrificed his soul alongside the Prophet Luana.

I finally got a chance to pick up "Blodsvept," the new album by Finntroll. It's a fun album that's nice and loud, and I recommend it if you're into "trolls" being metal. My favorite moment on the album is during the song "Rosets Kung," where they either give tribute to jazz scat singing or do their best Tom Waits impression. I can't tell. It's still a great album.

Next on my to-buy list is "Infestissumam" by Ghost B.C. I only recently became aware of this band, and I'm hooked. On a personal note, my wife affectionately refers to the lead singer, Papa Emeritus II, as "Pope Skeletor."

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
