In the first issue of Brandon Graham and Simon Roy's new Prophet series from Image Comics (which is numbered #21, just to be Marvel-ous), the title character kills and cures a large, predatory mammal. Then, using one of its bones and a flap of its skin, he makes a hobo bindle out of those two part, in which he then carries around the flesh of the very same animal to use as food.

That is probably the goriest hobo bindle ever made.

For more on Prophet—like, for example, is it any good or not—you might want to check out this week's Las Vegas Weekly, or at least this link, which will take you to my review of the book there.

If you'd like to read still more of me writing about comics on websites that are not Every Day Is Like Wednesday tonight, you might also want to visit Robot 6, where you can find a piece of some length regarding Carl Barks' depictions of various native peoples in the stories collected in the (wonderful, essential) Walt Disney's Donald Duck: "Lost in the Andes".
