Skip back if you missed yesterday’s bonus comic!
I wanted to offer a vague background for the Thunderbird, at least as the cultists see it. The Superstition Mountains seem an appropriate point of origin for the Thunderbird because of the modern legend’s Arizona roots and… have you ever seen the Superstition Mountains? That area has earned its name; it’s creepy and wonderful. As for the Thunderbird, it’s possible that its presence played a larger role in the comic’s overall story than “random monster for the hero to fight.” We’ll see.
