    1. 

    A long time ago and far away, people smuggled holy books (particularly the Judeo-Christian bible)through bad places and past bad people. They were sometimes called "bookleggers" because they'd often strap the manuscripts to their legs. And, sometimes, they were called "martyrs". DW is just upholding a tradition, even if he (well, the character) doesn't really understand why God called him to do this thing. Even if it means killing the occasional kitty-cat or saving a woman from rape and death. If you are a believer, you'll like it; if you're not, it'll look like just another Mad Max chapter.

    Another Mad Max chapter with a terrible twist at the end. But regardless, Bryan, I take your point and it's a good one. Thanks for the comment.
