I've always been interested in the way the ideas of magic and religion seem to conflict. I heard a song today; it was about a Christian and a pagan sitting down to dinner together, and the latter said something like, "You think magic comes from one source, I believe it comes from everywhere." The song continued to somehow reconcile these. I don't remember how. These things are usually somewhat fuzzy and hard to define anyway. But somewhere in that fuzzy area is where I'm going to try to place magic in the comic.
Give a man a fish, and he'll die of starvation. Teach a man to fish, and he'll die of mercury poisoning.
