Weekly Webcomic Wrapup just heard they're making Space Jam 2

S. Prell, @SamPrell

No, seriously. I thought it was a joke at first, but apparently Space Jam 2, starring LeBron James, is reportedly a real thing. Honestly, I don't know how to feel about it. I loved the first Space Jam, but it was a different time, and I was a different person. Still, the lure of nostalgia is strong with this one.

Actually, the existence of a Space Jam 2 is just the latest example of our culture's fascination with bygone eras. Whether it's a sequel to an 18-year old movie or games with pixelated art styles, there's plenty of modern life that evokes the past. So I'm curious as to whether or not you feel it's a good thing. Is banking on nostalgia helping us or is it a hindrance? What are some of your favorite moments from the past that have seen new life in the present?

Let us know after you vote for your favorite webcomic after the break.
