What about the Jack Kirby comic book with a giant face on mars years before we had pictures of surface of Mars?
I also remember this, it was a Channel 4 documentary about a retired art teacher, I think it was actually 9.11.1999 he painted the picture. It wasn't so much a detailed painting as a sketch with brushes. He had a copy of a newspapar of the day with him.Again I'm hoping others will post other such images, not specifically 9/11 related, so they can be gathered in one place. I seem to recall one where a dream "psychic" who used to paint or sketch his dreams and photograph himself in front of the calendar clock in his local Barclay's Bank as proof of the date produced a 9/11 related image and was photographed holding it a year before the event, with the added coincidence of the date on the clock behind him in fact being September 11 (or else the time was 9:11, or both). It would be good to find that.
Godfrey Daniels - I remember this one; this was part of one of the best comicbook storylines ever - the Days of Future Pastgattino said:Xmen #189 from 1985.....

Do you think that he foretold the advent of the Chinese takeaway?...... 'Fish flying tonight?'If I've inappropriately-appropriated this thread, can the Modship please relocate this flawed little dalliance elsewhere.
The 19thC artist Albert Robida may have been the unwitting father of visual Steampunkery, and must have influenced many artists (including dear old Patrick Woodroffe) with his neatly-offbeam visions of the 20thC.
His amazing work "Le Vingtième Siècle" gives much to consider and enjoy, of a future history that never happened, and can now be considered to be in our past, twice.
I find these visions of neverwhen to be compelling and absorbing. Recommended for contemplation
Just a small link to an online suppository of all his works. I could peruse these pages for months. Very interesting. "Le vingtième siècle" Seems to contain a lot of Future predictions, I like the Theater through the Phone page 57.The 19thC artist Albert Robida may have been the unwitting father of visual [URL='https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steampunk' said:Steampunkery[/URL], and must have influenced many artists (including dear old Patrick Woodroffe) with his neatly-offbeam visions of the 20thC.
