    “In the old movie Logan’s Run, citizens are exterminated as soon as they reach the age of 30.”

    If it’s any consolation, it could be worse. The book had the age limit set at 21.

      Whaaaaaaat? I saw that movie…. they rode the carousel and got reincarnated! Everybody said so! Now I gotta go back and rewatch it! And the TV show!

      Not the book… it was too weird…

      • Shan says:

        The book didn’t have any false promises of a new life and it wasn’t just one city, it was the whole world.

        REJECT SLEEP! RUN
        IF THERE ARE ENOUGH RUNNERS
        THERE WON’T BE ENOUGH HOMERS.
        THERE WON’T BE ENOUGH DS MEN
        IT IS WRITTEN THAT THE LIFE
        SPAN OF MAN IS THREE SCORE
        YEARS AND TEN, SEVENTY YEARS!
        DON’T SETTLE FOR TWENTY-ONE.
        RUN! REJECT SLEEP!

      Peter Ustinov was the cat lady, right?

      • Shan says:

        He was the guy inexplicably living in the ruins of Congress with a lot of cats, yes. Inexplicable, as where did he come from then?

        You should chase up the book, it’s a very tautly written piece of work with barely a wasted word, it’s very efficient. The fate of Washington D.C. in the book was … a bit different, putting it mildly.

    There’s a great use of colour in this page by the way. Just generally, I also like how everything is placed and framed.

    • mvandinter says:

      What you’re really saying is that I used too much color on this page, right? I guess I could go back and tone it down.

      • Shan says:

        Well, no that’s not what I was trying to say at all!

        So much for trying to play a compliment but you know what they say, no good deed goes unpunished.

        *REPORTS SELF TO SLEEPSHOP*

      • mvandinter says:

        Thanks for the compliment, Shan, and please forgive me for being a smartass fathead. I get compliments so infrequently, I don’t recognize them when I see them.

        • Shan says:

          I’m an Australian, we live, eat and breathe sarcasm so don’t worry about it.

          To be absolutely clear, I was being completely sincere about this page, though.

  3. Erik Van Thienen says:

    Via the Seine? Possible. Mysterious things are not unknown there. For example, every July a beach suddenly appears besides the Seine in Paris, to disappear as mysteriously again in September.

    • mvandinter says:

      In the early 19th century, the Seine was basically an open sewer. The smell coming out of it was not so mysterious.

  4. Sturzkampf says:

    Why is everyone so surprised that naked cavemen come from Paris.

  5. Brother Parvus says:

    Matters in this comic recall to my mind a novel by James P. Blaylock (in a convergent evolution sort of way) titled _The Digging Leviathan_, in which a substantial colony of human troglodytes live in the underground streams[0] of Los Angeles County, USA.

    [0] sewers, actually

  6. Yakumo says:

    But of course is just a stock thing to have French speakers say “but of course” that’s use here must indicate that even these cavemen and the caveboy (who would probably best pick it up) are truly fluent in French.

    • Custom avatarwintermute says:

      mais bien sûr!

      • Yakumo says:

        Yet better if my English had been decent, if not proper. :/

        • Custom avatarwintermute says:

          Your English is perfect, no worries there. I was just agreeing with you 😉

          • Yakumo says:

            Thank you, but unfortunately far from perfect. At least two errors I caught when I reread it. It should have read:
            It (removing repetition) is just a stock thing to have French speakers say “but of course.” Its (period and better pronoun) use here must indicate that even these cavemen and the caveboy (who would probably best pick it up) are truly fluent in French.

            • Custom avatarwintermute says:

              I thought the redundancy was for comedic effect (but of course)! The pronoun is a good catch, but trust me, it was quite understandable and better than many native speakers you see posting on the ‘net. Not that that is perhaps the best standard one might aspire to. 😉
