This collects six wildly inventive short comics stories that might collectively be dubbed “speculative memoir.” Schrauwen’s deadpan depictions of his and his offspring’s upcoming lives include alien abduction, dialogue with future agents, and coded messages in envelopes at breakfast.
“A dazzling and disorienting collection of short stories detailing the author’s interactions with the future. … By the final page, it’s the reader who has been abducted, by the cartoonist, captivated by witnessing time and space made malleable in Schrauwen’s hands.” — The New Yorker
“Schrauwen returns with another heady and inventive collection tales… This sophisticated, inventive story cycle never fails to entertain, and strikes plenty of cerebral sparks.” — Publishers Weekly
“Schrauwen tackles the basic building blocks of comics, science fiction, and our cultural sexual norms for insightfully entertaining results.” — PopMatters
