ILLUSTRATION: Ron LeBrasseur (Boston Comics Roundtable)

The Boston Comics Roundtable is a collective of comics artists and writers who've been meeting weekly in Harvard Square since 2006. We approached this future-Boston project as a sort of moderated "jam comic," an improvised group effort in which one cartoonist draws a panel, then passes it off to another who adds a panel of their own, and so on, usually resulting in a weird, amusing Frankenstein's-monster of a story. In this case, each cartoonist went off on their own and came up with a scene from the coming century, which we then fit together into a sequence. While we realize that the Boston area is loaded with economists, political scientists, engineers, inventors, city planners and other highbrow plutocrats who think they have a handle on where society is going, we cartoonists will put our predictions up against anyone's!
