"The World Ends With A Poot!" by Sarah Maloney
From the series Love Is Like Falling In A Black Hole.
Xander tells Raye how Bioandroids came to be on Homeworld. While Xander narrates the scientific history, a lone tardigrade survives multiple mass extinctions and falls through a black hole and finds themself on Homeworld.
The World Ends With a Poot! is a queer apocalyptic sci-fi parable with a splash of science and a few fart jokes! When life on earth becomes unbalanced—when the population and resource consumption of a single species ruins the life of others—mass extinctions occur. This is the story of a few of those mass extinctions!
Both reflective and speculative, Sarah’s poetic sci-fi cartooning mixes humor and catastrophe. It’s matter-of-fact and cautionary, didactic and humorously abstract, and a fun read!
