This doesn’t seem that bad…
I spent probably more time than I should have looking at this graphic, feeling smug that… well… probably not a whole lot would change for me in this scenario. I’d still be 400 miles from the nearest beach. I see we lose Cape Town… I am weirdly nonplussed by this development. Hopefully I could sell my apartment there before the waves start lapping through the foyer though. I don’t like to be out of pocket… although, really, if half the world is underwater I have my doubts as to the efficacy of fiat currencies… seeds, bullets and antibiotics… eh… and probably cigarettes and blowjobs will likely dominate trade. (Which obviously concerns me… since I don’t think I would give a very satisfactory fellatio)
…Of course then I noticed a suspicious continent in the Atlantic, partially cropped but seemingly suffixed with -ntis. A landmass that casts the overall credibility of this graphic in disrepute. Can you trust anything you find on the internet anymore?
Actually Atlantis might be my favorite Disney movie. Which probably puts me in quite a slim minority among Disney-aficionados. And likely also brackets me of belonging to a bygone era.
It was just so fantastically un-Disney. It also adopted the art style of Mike Mignolia who has a very unique and immediately identifiable style.
Mike Mignolia is responsible for some of my favorite comics. Hellboy, BPRD, etc. (That might not be immediately obvious to all you non-nerds out there). Its a style that Alan Moore apparently described style as ‘German expressionism meets Jack Kirby’.
I have no idea what any of that actually means. But its my little go-to line for when the owners of Comic book stores (always awkwardly and painfully) try to engage me in conversation. I don’t want to chat. Just sell me the damn comic.
“in a single day and night of misfortune all your warlike men in a body sank into the earth, and the island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea”
…. how long would it take to come back up again?
