The Game of Life
Foucault's Editor: "could you maybe try to state your point a little more clearly and concisely?"
Foucault: "clear writing is one island of the carceral archipelago; binding, punishing, surveillance at all times the mind of the writer, forcing his thoughts to break down into so called scientific modes of grammar, that confine creativity and restrict freedom into contained and approved modes of expression."
Foucault: "In other words, no, I won't."

Dungeons & Dragons & Philosophers
About half the time spent on this comic was spent on figuring out how exactly Simone de Beauvoir's hair works, and it still ended up looking terrible. I make no apologies for Derrida's hair, however, for no artist alive can capture that glorious mane.
