“I do not collect. Neither the living nor the dead. I gave it up a long time ago. Death is the only successful collector.”

I say “Based on loose adaptations” of Loren Eiseley’s The Star Thrower (sometimes known as The Starfish Story) because I could only find adaptations of this story from various motivational images and Christianized retellings. The Wikipedia article I linked has excerpts of Eiseley’s original essay, but the language was a bit too verbose to transpose into this comic. Of course, I could have just procured a legal copy of The Unexpected Universe myself to ensure I was adapting the tale as accurately as possible, but, like, no.
