I've gone back and tweaked this along with a few other pages--primarily to add logos. Logos are going to be a big part of this comic! The Thagirion logo here was designed by my pal (and occasional occult consultant) Philip Rice. The symbol evokes the black sun, which is kind of a nasty thing to be playing around with...which might explain why I dragged my feet about putting it into its proper place. Still, name the thing and you help control it.

Infodump panel! Gonna be more and more of these as the story goes on...

This strip is about my understanding of "magic" in the larger sense, but even from a purely functional, story perspective, I'm trying to make magic something specific and unique that won't act as a convenient deus ex machina whenever I get trapped by the plot. It's not Harry Potter, you can't just wave a magic wand and do anything.

So what CAN magic do in the world of Starforce Pentacle? Well, pay attention and you should be able to suss out the rules yourself. One thing it can obviously do is open portals...

Yeah, there's sound in outer space in that last panel, shut up.

"Five By Five"
Welcome all to Starforce Pentacle's (temporary?) new home! You can read more details about the future of this site at the site blog, accessed from the button on top of this page. Suffice to say I still haven't found the ideal presentation for this strip, but I'll keep trying...

Starforce Pentacle is an action-adventure space opera comic about "magick" in the 21st-century, Alan Moore, Aleister Crowley, Austin Osman Spare sense, and you'd be forgiven for having NO IDEA this was the case based on the strip so far. But now that Devil Girl has landed things are going to get real nuts, real fast.

I'm a novice to magic, just like Mary Sue, so my approach here may not always be the slickest, but I'm learning how to be a magician and the goal here is to make the comic my medium for casting spells. Sound nuts? Well, in the world we currently inhabit, why be sane?

I want to give big props to Johnathan "Wyrdweaver" Bell, my esoteric consultant and magical tutor, as well as pal Philip Rice who led me down this road in the first place. Part of the goal is to make this an effectively "interactive" comic--that's the goal of magic anyway, to reach out to others and affect the world. So please, don't hesitate to comment, participate, or share memes and ideas that come out of this comic! Credit the source, of course, but I want this to be considered "open source" as it were.

The next chapter of Starforce Pentacle--all 5 pages at once--will drop on the next full moon. That's June 9th for you Gregorian cats. On the moon in June, which is pretty soon, this loon will give you the boon of a new cartoon.

Enjoy! Ad Aspera Per Aspera!
