I also had an experience with a demonic creature that told me that its name was Asmoday. Which is Asmodeus. And when I actually was allowed to see what the creature looked like, or what it was prepared to show me, it was this latticework…if you imagine a spider, and then imagine multiple images of that spider, that are kind of linked together–multiple images at different scales, that are all linked together–it’s as if this thing is moving through a different sort of time. You know Marcel Duchamp’s “Nude Descending a Staircase”? Where you can see all the different stages of the movement at once. So if you imagine that you’ve got this spider, that it was moving around, but it was coming from background to foreground, what you’d get is sort of several spiders, if you like, showing the different stages of its movement.

Now if you imagine all of those arranged into a kind of shimmering lattice that was turning itself inside out as I spoke to it, and I was talking to my partner at the time and sort of saying, This thing’s showing us it’s got an extra dimension I haven’t got, and it’s trying to tell me that it’s good at mathematics. It’s vain. There’s something fourth-dimensional about this. This is all stuff I was actually saying at the time, while I was having the experience, which was pretty extreme.

Anyway. Over the next couple of weeks I started researching Asmodeus and found out that actually, yeah, he’s the demon of mathematics.

We all know I'm a big Larry Hama fan (just go through the tag on here and see how many posts are by me), but last year the Special Missions arc of GI Joe blew me away in terms of it's visual storytelling. I really wanted to share Issue 252 foccusing on the Baroness, but I found I couldn't fit 1/3rd of it in a post without cheapening the visual motif of reflections, or the emtional beats, so you'll just have to take my word that it's amazing (or buy it), as are the Stalker, Duke, and Scarlett stories. All of those stories are a lot more personal and heart wrenching than this one, tales of sacrifice, heartbreak, and life altering choices. The Destro one is really just pure fun, but it's much easier post, and it certainly brings a smile.

Peter Cannon was the dragon he'd saved the world from.

There were those in the world who knew the dragon as a monster and hated it.

There were those who also hated the effects of the dragon.

They sat together. )
