21st century Flagg

I was thinking about the future last night.

I was playing with my TiVo and I came across this show with William Shatner regarding how some of the ideas shown on Star Trek have come true.

However, in the grand scheme of things Howard Chaykin’s 1980s comic book series, American Flagg!, turned out to be the best at predicting the 21st Century. Chaykin’s dystopian future had people living in malls, computers that could make devices straight from the design, a cat with mechanical hands, holographic actors replacing humans, and a corporation running the government. [Insert your own link there.]

I need to buy stock in Howard Chaykin.
