Baffled and frustrated by the amount of magical thinking, quackery, and pseudoscience he saw around him, a brave soul sought out to crush these manifestations of ignorance and misinformation the only way he knew how… by drawing goofy pictures of them.
Thus began a web comic endeavor unparalleled in scope and fury. At first, creator Maki Naro set about this quest alone in the darkness.
