    The Theophony Written by Idols

    I do wish I had discovered this masterwork sooner. Linsnser is a great Hero of mine in his own right. Being that I have studied Folklore, Mythology, and varied Religions for Tens-of-thousands of hours my whole life and am a Pious and lifelong United Methodist I should have came to these conclusions sooner.
    Going in depth on Secret Societies, Occult (LHP) Orders, and the charismatics that wield this power is now revealed to be in total line with the paraphrased theory, "All fiction has a point and a message regardless if the creator knows this or not." Being an Artist, Writer, Musician, and Historian makes the legends throughought time blend flawlessly with the legends in tights allowing for a more discerning and critical look at the forces on the actual world's stage and their dichotomy into the fictional platform.
    Everyone has their own take on who the true heroes and villains are as each has a take on how much of reality is natural versus supernatural.
    This book follows the entire history of the "comic" form and really does point out to us that however crazy an Arkady Russovich is there is a real life plot boiling down to the same elements.
    In a light-hearted manner we see how strings are oulled and puppets dance "ripped from the headlines" of all time.
    Call this book History, Political Science, Conspiracy Theory, Literature, Art, Psychology, Biography; call it a "puppy dog" if you feel like it. Comic fanboy or not there is treasure here.
