2012, the comic, is truly the end of the world and it features Jackie Chan and vampire sexing, which all the kids are into these days. Featured in Conor Stechschulte's and Closed Caption Comics' anthology, Sock, Sam Gaskin proves the Mayans were right.
The Factual Opinion's Nina Stone writes:
"Gaskin riffs off of a multitude of philosophies and end-of-the-world hypotheses with everyone from Roy Orbision to Nostradamus, from the Hopi Indians to a horny Dracula over to the duo from Rush Hour. (I've left out a bunch of others intentionally because hey, I don't want to totally spoil it for you, right?) It's clever, hilarious, AND he finds a way to tie them all together into one great 2012, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it scenario...
At first, I felt like I might not be smart enough to review this. But then I realized that it wasn't intelligence that I was thinking about, but the results of my intelligence--meaning I thought that this was a comic worthy of a great review, a review that would make people want to read it and experience it and laugh at it as much as I did. I wanted to be able to write the sort of thing that could compare and contrast it to other artists and comics in ways that would make people want to read along with me.
I figured out what all those feelings meant, eventually. It just meant that I am a Sam Gaskin fan.
And that I think you should be too."
