Surviving the World

A Photocomic Education by Dante Shepherd

Lesson #1914 - Hauntings

You have to be kind of mindless to be a professional athlete, because if you focus at all on what is going on around you, and what it might mean in the narratives continuing through your sport's history, how can you not feel haunted by every athletic ancestor you have? Athletic poltergeists do exist! And sometimes they're armed with bat-like weapons, which feels kind of appropriate.

And, hey! Mindless athletes? Zombie-like creatures? Some pros certainly run just as well.

Anyway, here comes the World Series. Feel free to enjoy it vicariously through me if you wish. Or denounce me as an enemy for a week, I'm also okay with that.

This is also the start of STW's Halloween Week! If it is your favorite holiday of the year, feel free to look back on STW Halloween comics from 2008, '09, '10, '11, and '12. Enjoy!
