"The sound bite is ‘what if the most dangerous guy on the planet was the guy trying to do the most good?’ If you watch CNN, Fox and MSNBC, you can get cynical about the world. I’m bringing the cynicism forward that if J.C. himself came down tomorrow, could he survive with the media we have, and the people going ‘he’s supposed to have longer hair,’ and ‘I thought he was 6 feet tall?’

We’re cynical and instead of just embracing what’s in front of us and saying it’s possible, I think he would become a) the enemy of people because he happened to appear in America, so our enemies are going ‘hold on a sec, are they making super soldiers? They can make 10,000 of this guy?’ And b) the other side who should be endorsing him are going to be going ‘this dude isn’t good for business,’ and the business is organized religion because he’s not doing it by the playbook. ‘He’s kinda there, he’s just not all the way there. And if he convinces people that he’s right and we’re wrong, our business model goes to hell in a handbasket.’"

SO...just under a year ago, I began a series of scans from the comic books adapting the first two books in Terry Pratchett's magnificent Discworld series. I got to the end of the first book, started putting the next one off, and eventually forgot it entirely. However, currently April the 8th is upon us, and it's just about still Terry Pratchett day, so I figured why not finish what I started and give the seminal stories the send-off they deserve?

When last we left our less-than-intrepid heroes, Rincewind the Wizzard and Twoflower the Tourist had just literally fallen off the face of the earth. But now, a mysterious force awakens, to plop the pair right back on the disc for reasons yet unknown...
