John "Junior" Thibodeaux is born into an ordinary family in the working-class hinterlands of Maine, but his particular take on life is anything but normal. From infancy, a mysterious voice has encoded him with a horrific prophecy: on June 15, 2010, a comet which has broken away from the Kuiper Belt near Jupiter will impact the Earth, destroying all human life on the planet. Equipped with such devastating knowledge, Junior grows up forever wondering, "Does anything I do matter?"
