In April 2006, it will be the hundredth anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco quake. In terms of science, it was a great tipping point. Up until that point, the principal human reaction to great catastrophes was to assume it was the work of God. Come 1906, we began to think of it rationally. It was a hinge point leading up to the discovery of seismology.
The comics I am donating to the FIX fundraiser all have to do with natural disaster, and God's role in them. They will be on display in the art gallery at the 14th Street Y.
