The Aghori - part 1
Posted July 22, 2010 at 8:01 pm
I first heard of the Aghori while watching some special on cannibalism on the National Geographic channel. They're freaking weird and I just had to do a comic or two about them while the guys were in India. They perform rituals involving some or all of the following: "meat eating, alcohol drinking, consumption of beverages and foods with opiates, hallucinogens and cannabis products as key ingredients, cannibalism, residing in cremation grounds, and Tantric sexual rituals." While not technically supernatural creatures, they do share some traits with George and I'm sure he'll fit right in with the monks. This like a few other comics since I returned from the hiatus I took back in April is one that Bill had turned in. He also thought the Aghori were f'd up and he wrote a two-parter about them... we'll see the second comic on Monday.
