Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages

This is one of the (many) things that doesn't fully work for me in Julian's book. Like, I'll buy that God Himself could be a mother, 'cause it's not like anyone (sane or non-fictional) has ever seen him in person. But Jesus? Man, we saw Jesus on Earth (probably). By all accounts, he was a dude. So while I understand the metaphor, it's kinda hard to envision Jesus being anyone's mom. Unless he was Mr. Mom, I guess. But let's be honest - no one wants to be Mr. Mom.

Also, ring the bells and start the parade - I drew more than one panel for today's comic. Huzzah!
