The ironic thing is that image of a happy sloth with the circle background is a meme that, in the story, gets shared throughout the internet, and makes people who see it very happy . . . one would say addicted to the happiness it brings. The joy is so huge that they must share it with others and drop everything to watch it for hours on end.
Twelve hours later the viewers are transformed into screaming killers, leaking blood out of their eyes. Three people in the comic avoid that fate – a college student who is color blind, a retired military commander who is nearly blind and a meme scientist who refuses to look at the sloth. But will they be able to save themselves – let alone the world?
So it’s a picture of an evil happy sloth?
It’s a fun read, a story of horror and ideas and maybe the end of the world.
