I may have mentioned Axe Cop, one of my favorite comics ever (EVAR!), before. Axe Cop is written by the brothers Nicolle and illustrated by the elder brother. Well, the elder Axe Cop brother recently started a new comic, Bearmageddon, which I find quite enjoyable and pretty to look at. The comic is about the all-out war between grizzly bears and humans. He had mentioned that this was in the works before Axe Cop and that Axe Cop had just kind of…happened. Well, what this really tells me is that he’s been doing research for awhile and now he’s warning us of what’s to come. And not a moment too soon.
You see, the Bearmaggedon is real and we are entering into the first stages of it. Have you read the news lately? Here, let me help you.
- There was a fatal grizzly attack in Yellowstone recently. The second such attack this year. Before then, the last fatal attack was 1986. The bears are starting to ramp up their offensive.
- One of the scouts was exposed and routed recently by this woman.
- Here is a list of fatal bear attacks in North America from the 1870s on.
- Anecdote: Recently phones and internet to my place of employment went down and we were basically without outside communication for the whole day. There were some people outside my office up and down the street we’re on trimming trees. What I believe was happening was that there was a bee farmer trying to get a hive of feral honey bees and then was eaten by a bear. Bears desire honey, you see. The bear that ate the bee farmer probably was tracking the hive of feral bees for himself and was upset that the bee farmer was trying to steal his bees. And then there was a fight that knocked out our phone lines and internet for a whole day. The bear may have done it on purpose. Maybe he knows that I know about the Bearmageddon. I should be careful. But the message needs to get out all the same!
See? It’s happening. The bears are rallying and starting to deploy their scouts. Soon, hordes of bears will be upon us! I’m pretty sure it won’t be just the grizzlies either. One of the articles mentioned a black bear. The black bears make pretty good scouts, since they’re smaller. They’ll probably have other roles when the war really starts. I’m worried about the grolar bears. Those are probably more dangerous than just polar bears or grizzlies alone. They might be like the horrorsaurus, secret weapon of the dino apocalypse, only smaller and better looking. Actually, it would make more sense if the octo-bear is the real horrorsaurus.
You might find it strange that a comic is being used to warn us of impending doom. But if you think about it, it’s quite brilliant. The bears are obviously monitoring our news media outlets. If there were a serious story on the news about the approaching Bearmageddon, the bears would take steps to quiet the media down or launch some propaganda campaign of their own, as they’re obviously planning to take the general population unawares. But little do they know that some humans have already been informed and are taking steps. We need to spread the word so that we’ll be prepared to meet the bears in battle.
