2012 cartoon"Whether it's the Mayan prediction of the 2012 cataclysm or the theology of the rapture," writes Dan Archer in an introduction to his illustrated primer on the apocalypse over at Religion Dispatches, "predictions of the end of the world tell us as much about ourselves as about the coming apocalypse. And we've got plenty to worry about either way."

Archer does more than showcase his work at Religion Dispatches, he footnotes it with a link for nearly every panel of his apocalypse story. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to get my affairs in order.
