The Apotheosis of Thiel


I was pondering Peter Thiel’s quest for immortality around the same time I was itching to do a little more doodling.

Some say it’s hard to parody Silicon Valley because Silicon Valley is a parody in itself.  The TV show based on Silicon Valley is so powerfully funny because of how closely it parallels reality.  (For example: This fictional TV ad, which was made to parody Facebook’s TV ad comparing itself to chairs, only to be one-upped in its abuse of naming random things that evoke an emotional response by Uber’s ad about bits and atoms.)

Although Silicon Valley has already become its own parody, one thing that it is not yet is its own comic book.  The people to base characters on are all there, though, and they are amazing.  Please, someone make this happen.
