#145: What If Jerry And Spacebot Were At Home In Metrotopia Right Now? (well, I think they are, actually)
Saturday, October 15, 2011
The time travel adventure started in June, and for them, not many days have passed since then. And of course, they'll make sure to come home a few minutes after they left so that nobody will notice their absence.
This comic is in solidarity to people around the world who are fed up with brutal capitalism, with the rich getting richer and richer while the poor and the middle class get poorer and poorer. The #occupywallstreet movement started it all, inspired by earlier protests in North Africa, Spain, Israel and other places: people worldwide are beginning to be sick of "saving" banks and billionnaires while having to take 2-3 jobs to get along (if they even get a job in the first place). From New York, the movement has spread across the country and the world.
While the "Tea Party" still rebels in favor of the greedy and decadent 1%, more and more people are coming to their senses! Keep it up!

Blog and social media pages
Friday, February 5, 2016
Since our return in November 2015, we've massively expanded our presence in social media. Even though all of them have their links on every page, here's the complete list:
Our own blog
If you like our little comic, feel free to like or follow us in the social media networks you're members of, and use their sharing mechanisms to spread the word. Our eternal gratitude will be yours if you do.
Using these channels, you can also communicate with us, ask questions, or even try and make suggestions. We won't promise to listen to the latter, but are always glad to hear your opinions about our work. Even the critical ones, as long as they're more constructive and more eloquently worded than "you suck."
We deliberately left out Instagram since they're too hipster to allow access from a computer and require a mobile device. We create and publish this comic using a MacBook Pro, and I'm not too fond of switching devices just for one social network (I know there are unofficial workarounds, but never mind these).
