Welcome to Your Shitty Future!
Welcome to Your Shitty Future! (W2URSF) was a comic series written 2012 – 2020, centered around characters Dallas and Deecee, their circle of idiot friends, and a couple of hapless bankers. This discontinued series began at the death of the 20th century as Ali Abdullah Saleh stepped down from the Yemeni presidency after more than a year of unrest, and a new, more shitty, more uncertain future revealed itself—It is a series of unrelated dramatic episodes that chronicles one young, affluent generation’s frustration at having seen a world evaporate before their eyes at precisely the moment they were to master this world.
