Starting to catch up on my backlog of reading. This arc is already on issue #4, so I’m a little behind, but that’s OK.
This new arc in the American Gods saga continues where “My Ainsel” left off, and is classic Gaiman, steeped in mythology. I only need one example to sum up the gist of this issue.
In the god business, it’s not death that matters, it’s the opportunity for resurrection.
The death of a god is required for the renewal of the cycle. Osiris, Jesus, Mithras, the list goes on. One need only refer back to Frazer to understand that this is a dominant trope in mythology.
Not much else to share on this. Thanks for stopping by, and keep reading cool stuff.
