Yes We Will

In anticipation of tomorrow's presidential inaugural, Dan Goldman extrapolates a psychedelic, science-fictional scenario from a catchy campaign slogan and the millenial apocalyptic notions of pre-columbian astronomers.

Great short Dan, really digging the pacing and storytelling..not to mention the story itself!!

Novelty theory, Timewave Zero and Obama all wrapped up in one?? You truly are a comics monster!

That's cool. I was sucked in. There's more to come yes?

And in the future, Obama still hasn't beat the
cancer sticks!? Sucks for him.

Not to slag on the creativity of this work. Or for the matter the quality of the drawings themselves, but...
This kind of "singularty" SF sends me to sleep and/ or revulses me. I think you need to have a very impoverished view of what a human being can be, what the human spirit is capable of, to think that it can in any way be augmented or improved through some kind of "fusion" with technology, whatever that would even mean.

Feels like you've been mainlining whatever Warren Ellis has been smoking, Dan. Good stuff!

You've actually managed to make Obama uglier and creepier.

I'm going to have nightmares about that last image.

You've actually managed to make me believe that Comedy Central will be able to keep John and Stephen for four more years!!!!

To Daniel from Perth: the "human spirit" has been augmented and improved upon by fusion with technology since the beginning of time. Heard of tool-making, writing, the printing press, medicine?
To Dan Goldman: right on!

25. wha?
Six panels of crap without the seventh-panel punchline is kind of... lacking.

At least I've got some new clipart around which to build parodies.

So lemme get this straight: "the change we can believe in" is that Obama turns white?

I can see religion falling all over itself now proclaiming Obama definitely is the anti-christ wanting to take us to a different dimension than what has been the proclaimed heaven with pearly gates and golden streets with all the "angels" proclaiming "He is LORD". Surely this is the fulfillment of the "Book of the Revelation!" Are we really ready for this? There has to be a beginning of the revelation of the truth of the unity of man with his Creator sometime. Let the games begin!! Love still transcends all.

All the impending doom and gloom along with First Contact just doesn't seem to hold a candle to watching The King of Cool usher in the Age of Aquarius in pink bunny slippers.....now that's something to stick around for. :)

That was weird.
But the good kind of weird.
I liked it.

No one is getting an "upgrade" The Doctor defeated the Cybermen to keep us safe from "upgrades"!

Just like Obama has started smoking something else ;-)
Loved it, the story and the drawings. Ace!
Want more, more I said...

Obama as a time traveling savior who jumps back in time to before the singularity in order to help with the technorapture...

And then ascends in bunny slippers to become that savior...

I LOVE! You and Warren Ellis must give me whatever gets you high!

Reminded me of Childhood's End by the Great Clarke, but with creamy filling!

Wow..that was so stupid I can't believe I wasted my time reading it! And yet there are apparently a ton of pin-heads out there that think this ridiculous story was interesting (it wasn't) because you actually think Obama is something more than a talentless young hack that is going to drive our country into poverty and socialism to the cheers of the ignorant masses...

Ever hear of "Crystal Night"? It was one of thee defining points in history when desperation of a people was turned to the advantage of evil men..."Never waste an emergency..." and Obama and crew have convinced the blind, ignorant masses that unless we act NOW with a trillion in spending, we are all doomed. Pathetic...the death of America is at hand...and we are supposed to take delight in this notion through stupid cartoons? Pathetic..

and BTW, I absolutely agree with Deathman about humanity as a final product.

It is weird how everything seems to be converging now. The Sigularity has been theorized of in many studies and I wonder if maybe 2012 is the year. It would be quite a bit sooner than is expected by many...

This comic was the good kind of weird but also the culmination of all the stupidity enveloping the world around me. Sadly, this seems to be what people see their future as and it just makes me giggle helplessly.
