#123 Unicornism

Little known historical fact – Hitler actually did believe in unicorns. And also maybe God?

Sorry I’ve been out of commission for so long. The good news is that things are about to get a lot more active here, especially with the Philosophers’ Carnival coming up on the 9th! I’ve already received a TON of excellent submissions so far, and narrowing them down to a few is going to be quite a challenge.

Anyway, enjoy the comic, and stay tuned for more soon!
