This week will be full of comics by my fellow webcomic creators and the creme de la creme of visual entries to the FutureWorldProblems contest I mentioned the other day. If you like this charming entry, check out the original post with FutureWorldProblems here, or the first comic on the subject here.
Today’s FutureWorldProblem comes from James “In His Likeness” Hatton, a man of quick wit and an a fellow brother in the world of minimalist comics. His comic, In His Likeness, is an existential comedy featuring G-d, the Devil, Buddha, and other religious figures as the main characters. If you like The System but wished I’d stop making so many design jokes, you should check out IHL.
This past weekend I got to hang with Jamie at Wild Pig Con in Springfield, NJ. We spent most of Saturday night with some of our other cohorts sitting around a table trying to make up new #FutureWorldProblem ideas. He’s good at it.
Jamie was actually also the driving force behind the theme in the first place. It was an original post by Jamie on Twitter that made me write the first one, which then proceeded to make me write 10 more immediately. What was that first tweet of his?
@revvoice: Comic is running late due to not being able to remotely login to my home computer. #stupidthefuture
Sure, #futureworldproblems had more of a ring to it than #stupidthefuture, but he’s definitely the g-dfather of the meme.
Btw, as for the FutureWorldProblems contest I mentioned earlier in the week? Results will post on Friday. Another guest comic will be up tomorrow, see you then!
