And that was the story of how I single-handedly got the Church of Latter-Day Saints to stop visiting my parents' house. TRUE FACTS.
In all seriousness, though, Chartres does get hit by lightning all the time. Like, ALL THE TIME. The majority of the times it's burned down has been due to lightning. And the sacred well in the basement and the deaths of martyred saints being tossed down there are as well-documented as those things can be. Stories that the site was originally occupied by druids didn't appear until medieval times, however.
Please keep in mind that this little chapter is only 11 pages out of a 64-page anthology I created with Dakota McFadzean, Sean Knickerbocker, and Katie Moody, all Center for Cartoon Studies class of 2012! If you grew up Catholic or Christian like the four of us (it stuck more with some of us than others, haha!), then Holy Shit in its entirety is well worth checking out! There's a link all the way up at the top of the page.
And, as always, thanks for reading!Uploaded by thesnowybiscuit at 11:15 on 25 March
