In case you haven't heard, legendary satirist Tom Lehrer has released his entire body of work to the public domain. You can download all of his lyrics from his website until 2024, when the site goes down.

I just started reading this comic and I'm most of the way through the prologue. CW: post-apocalyptic, prologue is modern and the apocalypse involves a virulent disease.
Beware: beautiful art, large archive. I'm about to make myself stop reading for now.

I'm guessing no one thought they'd be writing this headline with the word "another" in it: "LAX reports another sighting of person wearing jet pack"
