“A hopelessly optimistic moon-age daydream.” –
The Village Voice

Whatever Happened to the World of Tomorrow?, the long-awaited follow-up to Mom's Cancer, is a unique graphic novel that tells the story of a young boy and his relationship with his father.

Spanning the period from the 1939 New York World's Fair to the last Apollo space mission in 1975, it is told through the eyes of a boy as he grows up in an era that was optimistic and ambitious, fueled by industry, engines, electricity, rockets, and the atom bomb. An insightful look at relationships and the promise of the future, award-winning author Brian Fies presents his story in a way that only comics and graphic novels can.

Interspersed with the comic book adventures of Commander Cap Crater (created by Fies to mirror the styles of the comics and the time periods he is depicting), and mixing art and historical photographs, this groundbreaking graphic novel is a lively trip through a half century of technological evolution. It is also a perceptive look at the changing moods of our nation-and the enduring promise of the future.

“A book that can be enjoyed on a number of levels… We can’t imagine a better time for young people to hear this inspiring message, and this book delivers it with grace and style.” – American Astronautical Society

“Whatever Happened To The World Of Tomorrow is a very special book that will speak to you on so many levels. And at the end of it, when you sit there and think on what you’ve just read, it may even make you, like it did me, realise that Fies’ vision of our past and his hope for the future is something we can all share in. Quite brilliant.” – Richard Bruton

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“There was a time when the future was something to look forward to. That’s the spirit Brian Fies captures in his graphic novel. An affectionate look at a time when science and technology promised a better life, and no one worried that the flying car and jet pack would contribute to global warming.”
