Stunts for the Spotlight
The election is still very far away, and Donald Trump is sucking up all the media oxygen from every other candidate. He’s also leading the Republican field in the polls, which is hilarious. Claims that Trump is more extreme than his peers are untrue. He’s just not using the dog whistles and Luntz-speak […]

The Side Effects of Diplomacy
There’s finally a nuclear agreement with Iran, and of course it’s not going over so well with the warmonger set. The only alternative to this deal is another war. Anyone who says otherwise is either lying or incredibly dumb. To claim a better deal was possible is to ignore that China and […]

Troubleshooting Wall Street
A glitch shut down the NYSE for a couple hours last week. I’m sure it was traumatic for the obscenely wealthy to watch as their capital gains temporarily sat idle. Read the comic at the New York Times.

Preview of Our Newest Characters
I’m not going to San Diego Comic Con, but I’m hosting my own panel online, previewing a whole slate of new characters that may or may not appear in future comics. Hopefully Marvel buys the rights and beats these franchises into the ground so I can retire and not have to […]

2015's Summer Blockbusters
I have yet to see any of this year’s big summer movies, but I will be attending a theatrical re-release of Jaws this weekend. I guess that’s what happens when you age out of Hollywood’s beloved 18-35 demographic. The Supreme Court’s term was an historic one and I’m surprisingly happy with how […]

Our National Conversations
After every tragedy, we engage in a “national conversation” about how we can prevent it from happening again. That usually devolves into partisan bickering before any significant change happens. Maybe this time will be different. And maybe one day Lucy will let Charlie Brown kick that football. Read the comic at the […]

Mission Creep Techniques
We’re sending more troops to Iraq! That always ends well. I’ve been drawing cartoons on that same subject for my entire career. Not sure how long I can continue without repeating myself, but perhaps that repetition’s a necessary counterargument to the geniuses who keep insisting military interventions in the Middle […]

The 2016 Campaign Carnival
I’ve ignored it for as long as I could, but after a month of official campaign announcements, plus Jeb’s non-announcements due to fundraising shenanigans, I’ve done a cartoon about the election that will not end. I like Bernie Sanders. If years of following our terrible, corrupt election process hadn’t made me a […]

The 2016 Campaign Carnival


America's Top Sports Cop
Like most Americans, my interest in soccer peaked with youth soccer (Go BYSA!) and only returns during the men’s and women’s World Cup tournaments. But anyone with a passing interest in the game can tell FIFA is terribly corrupt. Last week’s FIFA arrests were surprising and long overdue. Awarding the 2022 World […]

Urgent Government Recalls
The massive recall of cars with exploding airbags got me thinking about other things that are deadly and/or dangerous either by design or neglect. The recall of the Patriot Act, or at least the sunset of its most pernicious sections, looks like it could really happen, thanks to Mitch McConnell being incredibly […]

A Marathon of Appeals
The younger Boston Marathon bomber was sentenced to death on Friday. There will be victim impact statements this week, and then the appeals process begins which will drag on until I am old. I don’t support the death penalty, even for shitty humans like Tsarnaev, and the majority of my neighbors […]

Rapidly Rising Faiths
A Pew survey came out last week showing that the ranks of Christians are declining in America, while the unaffiliated and other faiths are growing. Of course Christianity will remain a super-majority in the U.S. for decades to come, but it offers some hope that in the distant future, the […]
