Where does he get those wonderful toys?
Doc takes center stage this week and leaves us with a startling revelation. Apparently, Doctor Eugene McCarver invented the Blackberry way back in the 1930s. Who knew? Ha!
Seriously though, Doc mines some major plot nuggets from the Custer’s archives this week, and some of you may be asking, “What the heck is a Tuurngait, anyway?” Well, never fear Wikipedia is here! Here’s an excerpt from the entry on Inuit mythology:
“Some spirits were by nature unconnected to physical bodies. These figures were called tuurngait (also tornait, tornat, tornrait, singular tuurngaq, torngak, tornrak, tarngek). Some were helping spirits that could be called upon in times of need. Some were evil and monstrous, responsible for bad hunts and broken tools. They could also possess humans, as recounted in the story of Atanarjuat. An angakkuq with good intentions could use them to heal sickness, and find animals to hunt and feed the community. He or she could fight or exorcise bad tuurngait, or they could be held at bay by rituals; However, an angakkuq with harmful intentions could also use “tuurngait” for their own personal gain, or to attack other people and their tuurngait.”
I’ll let y’all chew on that for a week…

Curse me once Shamen you, curse me twice Shamen me.
*UGH* *groan* (LOL!)
Don’t mean to nit-pick, and I wonder if anyone else noticed this, but…
Did the doc just put the device into his left hand after digging it out of the bag with his right? Or can his right hand spontaneously change into a left hand? Because in panel 4, he’s holding the device in his right hand, then in the very next panel, it’s in his left.
Quick hands? magic? error? just wondering.
still a good comic.
Hmmm…I hadn’t noticed that.
I’m going with a quick change of hands between panels. Those gutters are a magical place where all manner of things can happen.
Glad you’re enjoying the comic!
Just started reading and ate the whole thing! The artwork is GORGEOUS and the story is fantastic! Love it!
Welcome aboard, Penelope!
I’m glad you are digging the Daredevils. There’s lots of fun stuff on the horizon, so stay tuned…
