Michael Alan Nelson, writer for the Fall of Cthulhu comics from Boom! Studios, sent me a couple of copies of the comic today, for some dark, mysterious reason. For a little context to this page, the two heroes have just witnessed a horrible suicide, and are going through the dead person’s effects and computer files to try and figure out why he blew his brains out.
The “why” is apparently that he’s been reading Pharyngula, in part. I know a few people who have that kind of reaction.
It’s only a fleeting mention—he doesn’t have me gibbering insanely and ripping open my lab coat to reveal a writhing mass of unexpected appendages or anything like that—but it does go a long way towards alleviating my jealousy of Ophelia. Notice, though, that Phil claims to have been referenced in a comic book (along with James Kakalios), but I don’t think we should allow him in the bloggers-mentioned-in-comics club until he shows us actual evidence.
Now I’m going to have to go down to the comic book shop in town and request the rest of the run of this series so I can find out what happens.
