When Felonious Monk and Sebastian find their friend Dave in the middle of the field, he is hanging on for dear life, threatened to be sucked up into the sun! Quickly practical, yet unanswerable questions -how did this happen? how can we keep Dave from flying into the sun?- give way to philosophical questions about souls and the interconnectivity of life.
This early comic by Jason tackles a lot of big questions, and deals with a ridiculous idea with an attitude that fluctuates between silliness and earnestness. It’s a fun and easy read that will draw you back to read again for its meditations on being.
