Written before the virus changed the way we live, Twenty-First Century Myth Family is a prophetic and disturbing work. Bold in its theme and palette. Comics, but not the way you know them.
"They like to watch a lot of streaming video, like to think that everybody else’s life is less important than their own. But one night they happen upon a show that scares the living daylights out of them.
1. They can’t tear their eyes away. They have to keep watching because, as usual… it’s all about them!
2. Not long after they all came into being, the world turned sour. Too late did they realize how the contagion was born, how fast it could spread, how it changed them.
3. Some of them ran to their gods, thinking that those omnipotent yet wholly imaginary beings might be of some help. But they were very wrong." [extract from Twenty First Century Myth Family by Dave Sims]
