Catch them in Grand Rapids on June 19! - http://goo.gl/sor6TG

I’m not sure if “pyramid scam” is the right comparison, because this implies they’re in it for material gain. The reality is more disturbing.

Religious parents inculcate children into a system of behavior and attitudes the rewards for which are, by their own admission, unobservable .

anonymous asked:

but whats a pyramid scheme?? I've never heard of it sorry to ask

a pyramid scheme is a “get rich quick” dealy that does not last very long for the people at the bottom of the pyramid but can be incredibly lucrative for the one person at the top.

a more detailed description under the cut, and at the end is some helpful information that everyone should read if you’re not familiar with MLM and Pyramid Schemes.

New in the Birdcage Bottom Books shop:

Josh Burggraf & Victor Kerlow’s “Pyramid Scheme" 

Pyramid Scheme:  A 24 page intergalactic adventure comic starring Dog & Robot and Kid Space Heater   Worlds collide when Kid Space Heater’s latest adventure leads him right into Dog & Robot’s living room.  An unlikely partnership forms in this gripping, morally ambiguous treatise on modern relationships, violence in the media and comedy in the 22nd century.  Featuring ancient cults, mysterious relics, interstellar space travel and gunfights in extraterrestrial ruins, Burggraf and Kerlow continue their battle to legitimize absurdist joke action comics to a legion of unloving and disrespectful indie comix fans.  Enjoy!
