Moments after the inauguration of our 45th President, best friends Barack Obama and Joe Biden were escorted to secret lab run by the world’s greatest scientists. They were asked to take off all their clothes and hold very still in a fetal position until they felt a painful tingling sensation. Then they vanished. They would awake to find themselves apart, and inside their younger bodies and driven to find each other, and to change history for the better. Their only guide on this journey is Neil deGrasse Tyson, a scientist from the present who appears in the form of an augmented reality that only they can see and hear. And thus they find themselves leaping throughout their own lifetime, looking for the best in people...striving to right injustice wherever they find it, forever hoping that their next jump in time will take them to a future that’s not scary and broken on a quest for a world which they can proudly call… home.
A visual feast that’s part graphic novel and all heart, this is a love letter to brilliantly cheesy sci-fi and the two men who can still be counted on to inspire us.
