Under the Dome
"Went to post something about a new comic this afternoon. But of course... there weren't any. I had forgotten. Again.
DomesDay 42. Still trapped. Trapped in a world where no new real comics come out. Comixology, uselesss. My blogging powers-- and everyone else's-- gone.
We've all had to adapt, but with no new information or entertainment coming in from the outside-- if there IS an outside -- we've had to make do with old comics. Old stories, recycled. Some have tried telling new stories with old abandoned characters but it's all so...hollow. Like the dome of the universal crossover that has converged on us all.
As bad as the isolation is, it's not the worst thing. The worst thing is the not knowing. Not knowing whats's on the other side of the dome. Will our familiar world be restored to us? Or a whole new one? Will it have a place for us?
Somewhere I used to have a picture of me. A happy me, ready to spend his money on the week's new comics, enjoying the present, eager for the future. But, sometime over the last 42 days, I lost it. I've searched and searched... in vain.
And now it's even fading from my memory.
Maybe I -- all of us -- will adapt. Or maybe we'll just be replaced...."
