You want to live in the world of Zardoz?

Is this one where you realized you had reused a previous joke? Because the "MC to the Warlord" gag IS the "wearing a frazzled tux and shouting 'BEHOLD!'" joke from the one where you envision become Braino the Plan-Maker to the gun-wielding Mullet Boss after civilization collapses...

Which dystopia will we get? I'm betting on Brazil.

How to remember the good times, how to prepare for the future...Scott, your final comic titles are strangely fitting.

It's been a long time since I've seen a Mad-Max-type movie, but as I recall, in the two I saw years ago, there were no women my age at all. So I assume the women my age were all killed very early. Considering how many of us there are in real life, women my age are surprisingly scarce on the silver screen in general. Gee, I wonder why.

I already have a place reserved in one of the roving motorized raider gangs that are sure to form after the apocalypse.

I just hope that if and when the end of the world as we know it comes, it'll be Mad Max or Fist of the North Star and not Zardoz.

Stand-Up comedy has jokes? Who'da thunk it? By the way...if you have enough stories about your career for a book, I'd buy it! (Your stand-up experiences, not the new one as a writer....I gotta say, though, I bet there are some good stories about how Basic Instructions happened - especially from the perspective of the people who posed for the characters - I. E. "I have wet myself!" I want to hear about THAT reaction!)

The last panel is GOLD! By the way, just finished 'Master of Formalities' - so good, great ending! You should promote it more! And Missy's was un-put-down-able!

As a marksman, a black belt and an engineer I always thought I would fair pretty well in a post apocalyptic future. Then I went paintballing with my 12 year old nephew. I got brained from 50 yards by my 9 year old son.

Scariest movie about the future I ever saw was Demolition Man.

@Allen, I think Brazil is the dystopia we already have.

Anne: You don't mention your age, but I thought you should know that there is a pack of pistol- and rifle-toting women in the movie who kick some serious arse. Also, they are all old enough to by my gran.

With the end of this era looming soon, I must again state two truisms for me: 1) I wish BI were NOT ending, and 2) I wish there had been the development of a Jenkins based "superhero" character in a similar vein to the kniefketeer.

Makes you wonder if female webcomics artists make occasional jokes at expense of their gender.

Eh, with my luck, it'd be the Zombie Apocalypse and I'd be the guy that had knee surgery the day before.
