08022013 Lord of the End Times


Today’s comic is based on an ongoing joke my wife and I have between us. Back when we were dating a million years ago, we saw several documentaries on the Apocalypse (as if a program about the Apocalypse could really be classified as a documentary). Several of the prophets of doom prepared maps of what the world would look like afterward, and one of the amusing constants was that Montana was always miraculously spared. The seas rose, the mountains crumbled, but Montana was always safe in the middle of it all, fiddling while the world burned.

Whenever my wife mentions moving, my first option is always Montana. I figure most of the folks interviewed for these doomsday programs are crackpots, but they’re all crackpots with the same basic idea, so there must be some truth in what they’re saying.

While on the phone the other day, my wife mentioned the Montana thing to her friend. “At the end of the world, Montana will be spared,” she said with a laugh. “I don’t really know why.” My response, loud enough for her friend to hear, was word for word what Psychic Rob says in panel two. And thus today’s comic was born!


Andrew Kaye (known in some circles as AK) is the creator of Ben & Winslow and other questionable comics, many of which can be found in his deviantART gallery. He’s also the editor-in-chief of this magazine. Duh?
