    As I read about what a "MacGuffin" is, I thought to myself, "I've heard that name before!" Then it struck me, "The Maguffin Diamond!" The Maguffin Diamond is what drives the dramatic action in the first part of Mike Grell's Jon Sable story, "The Ashes of Eden." The comic is available here on ComicMix!…The Maguffin Diamond is a perfect MacGuffin, truly a dramatic definition of the word!
