Past Future New York

The last complete The Lives of X!Gloop story has started on the website. This one was drawn in 1992, and set in the year 2004. Strange how 2004 seemed a distant enough future at the time.
Of course, the future as I envisaged it, a world in which New York City had car-free Sundays, a female mud-wrestler turned President of the US and the Olympics cleaned up by genetically manipulated Belgians, is wildly inaccurate even if President Bush has now been making noises to Americans about not using their cars unecessarily. That's not a problem; the problem is that compared to the future we actually got, it's pretty tame. Not nearly absurd enough. Next time I do a near-future story, I will have to make it more over-the-top.
