Okay, so it’s not really anything to do with comics, but I am perversely fascinated by this story:
While the media has occasionally scapegoated adventure gaming and small time Savonarolas like Jack Chick and “Dr.” Thomas Radecki regularly castigate Dungeons & Dragons as dangerous and satanic, the lawyer for a Detroit man accused of slashing a co-worker to death with a homemade samurai sword may be the first barrister to come up with a “D&D defense,” claiming his client was a psychotic schizophrenic obsessed with D&D. “He played Dungeons and Dragons and was obsessive with games of fantasy,” the attorney was quoted as saying. “He became his fantasy. He was a ninja doing an honorable thing.”
Personally, I think that the Chewbacca defense may be called for here.
