This Misanthrope is Getting Social

Are you tired of waiting to read my one, or two, at most, cartoon(s) a week? If so, you’re in luck! I’ll be posting five (5!) exclusive comics this week for The Nib’s newsletter and Instagram account.

Will I draw something smart, cutting and insightful about something in the news, or will I revert to my alt-weekly days and draw a fart coming out of a butt? The suspense is killing me.

So subscribe to the newsletter and follow The Nib on Instagram.

Here’s today’s first entry:

Brian McFadden is drawing us a comic a day this week! Explain THAT.

America at War: With Bill O’Reilly

America at War: With Bill O'ReillyBill O’Reilly was caught in a lie. No, not that one. Or that one. Or the whole sexual harassment loofah thing. This is not really news. Brian Williams being a fabulist was a little more surprising, but not really. Network and cable news are pretty much infotainment anchored by narcissists.

Meanwhile, there’s been no comeuppance for the liars that got us into the Iraq War. In fact, many of the same warmongers are itching to get us into another war with Iran. And Benjamin Netanyahu is more than willing to give them an assist with this week’s bizarre address to Congress.

Read the comic at The New York Times.

In Search of …

In honor of Leonard Nimoy, who passed away today, here’s a throwback to a Strip I did featuring him way back in 2012. He’s obviously remembered as Spock, but he did a bunch of other stuff.


My earliest memory is of his voice at Boston’s Museum of Science. It is forever linked with field trips and brown bag lunches.

Coping Strategies for the Snowbound   Recently updated !

coping-thumbIn this week’s exclusive comic for The Nib, I try to help my fellow snowbound bastards cope with this terrible winter.

So far, I’ve shoveled over 7ft of snow. My clunker of a car became a necessary evil when Greater Boston’s public transit shit the bed for pretty much all of February, and citizens gave up the Sisyphean task of shoveling their sidewalks.

Despite the magnitude of these storms, I remain adamantly opposed to the Weather Channel’s bullshit of naming every weather event after some D&D nonsense.

The (In)Complete Field Guide to American Extremists

The (In)Complete Field Guide to American ExtremistsIt was another dumb week in dumbness. Everyone was arguing over the semantics of “radical this, extremist that” instead of what can be done about ISIS.

The options are terrible and nobody in elite circles wants to admit there’s nothing we can do. Over a decade of the United States’ foreign adventures should have proven that bombing campaigns only create more extremists, both abroad and among the war-crazies at home.

Meanwhile, there are a ton of other extremists right here doing their best to ruin everything.
