To celebrate the one-year anniversary of 4CP, HiLobrow invited guest curators to assemble themed comic-book-detail galleries from 4CP’s collection. Click here to see all galleries.
THEME: THE FUTURE DIMINISHED
CURATOR: SCOTT EDELMAN
I remember tomorrow. Tomorrow was going to be huge. Tomorrow was going to dwarf we who brought it into being. Tomorrow was going to be a monument casting a shadow large enough to shelter us all.
But now, our monoliths are miniaturized. Now, what was to fill a room instead fits in a pocket. Now, our dreams have grown strangely small. Now is no longer tomorrow.
Tomorrow is a broken promise.
