On Dan Meth‘s Futuristic Movie Timeline, movies are listed in chronological order according to their setting, represented by the rightmost end of their green bar. The left end of the green bar represents the year the movie came out in, giving a very interesting visual representation of exactly how near the “near” future can wind up being in the long run.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
