All this week on Table Titans, instead of running the strip as usual, we're taking a couple of days to thank our readers and Kickstarter backers. The comic pages will feature this brand new piece of art, inspired by the work of Walt Simonson and illustrated by Scott Kurtz.

This corrupt tome is filled with deplorable wisdom, malignant ideas, and descriptions of creatures, rites, and practices most foul. Evil permeates every word and image inscribed within it. . . .
