Let’s play “CDC!”

Pestilence has always been a bit odd for us, even for a horseman. Obviously there’s his unusual physical shape, which I consider the longest-running gag in the comic, and his childlike demeanor, which we use quite often for humor. But he’s immortal, so he technically isn’t a kid–he just thinks like one. So, we explored that interaction a little bit today. I can’t help but feel a little bad for the guy–he might be a giant, shapeless cell and all, but just because he’s the embodiment of every disease known to mankind and many more besides, doesn’t mean he’s undeserving of our love.
