The Futurists – Shut Up

Shut Up

From the Editor’s Desk

Wurt.

Wurt up that is

It be the Curt.

C-to-the-U to the R.T.I.S.! From London to Action Park.

I’ve always been a big fan of the Hip-hop community. “A lickey boom-boom down!”

Just call me MC Urtis masta’ of the Wurtiss.

People have always asked me, “C-Dog, why aren’t you on the cover of GQ?”

It is simple slick. That shit is EUROPEE-IN and I like my bread buttered on one side. None of that fashion bug crap for me.

I like rap like this — straight from Ewing.

With Rhythm and Rhyme,
Papa Curt

The Futurists – Boss

Big Boss

From the Editor’s Desk

Greetings from the BunkeGGGRRR!!! That’s right, I said, “GRRRR!!!” I bet you are wondering why? The pet ferret is loose again and he’s a crafty son-of-bitch. Yesterday he got into the Honey Nut Cherrios, and let me just say that His Majesty Rudolph was not in the slightest pleased. The funny thing is that no one has actually seen Jerry the Ferret anywhere ferrying about.

This has raised a couple eyebrows and led some to ask the question, is it actually Jerry???

Fact: On Tuesday our handy-man came to clean out our gutters. He expressed a keen interest in Jerry and asked if he could buy him off us. We politely explained that Jerry was the Bunker’s pet, and wasn’t for sale as such. I’m not so sure if our handy-man comprehended. I think I saw his blue pickup truck outside the office last night at around 10:30 p.m… Maybe the handy-man has a taste for Honey Nut Cheerios too…

Yours in the Future & Worried about Jerry,
Curtis, Sr. Editor

The Futurists – Rebel

Rebel

From Mike’s Desk

I pulled out my copy of Snarfquest here the other day. It has always been one of my favorite comics. Drawn by Larry Elmore, it originally ran in Dragon (magazine). Elmore is today perhaps best known as having done the cover paintings for the original Dragonlance novels written by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. This strikes me as sort of odd, because the Snarfquest comics are really fantastic.

Beyond the comic’s cult following, other role-playing oriented comics such as Knights of Dinner Table are perhaps better known. The difference between Snarfquest and Knights of the Dinner Table is Snarfquest can be understood outside of a role-playing context. And yet, for those familiar with role-playing games, the comic captures the magic of actual role-playing. As Roger E. Moore points out in the 1987 compilation of the book, “I particularly like Snarfquest because it reads like a parody of a typical fantasy role-playing game, showing how great ends come from small beginnings, with lots of weird stuff in between.”
