For decades, Catholics in England had been harshly persecuted, suffering prison, loss of lands, and even grisly execution. Now, one young man had had enough.

Of course, before Elizabeth, Bloody Mary’s Catholic regime had been just as bad. And if the Catholics had actually succeeded, they probably would have been just as bad again. Makes it hard to choose sides, from where we sit now.

Not that that’s analogous to anything in OUR world!

(I hit this from a different angle in the law comic, back when we were going through the history of self-incrimination. Those were fun pages to draw!)

Also, I’ve finally given these comics their own Instagram. I’m trying to put something up there every day.

And if you like these comics, and would like to help me put them out faster, contributing to my Patreon would be awesome! Patrons get to see these pages a day early, at full resolution 4x the size (or is it 16x? It’s four times wider and taller…). Patrons also get more previews and other tidbits than I’m putting on Instagram.

Thanks! And thanks for reading!
