Cartoon Subversive

So a while back I posted the Doonesbury strips from 1971 featuring John Kerry. That post gets lots of hits. There also seem to be a sizable handful of people who are serving up those images off my server and directly onto their own sites. Increasingly these people seem to be quite conservative...

So I'm tired of these cartoons, and I'm thinking maybe I can replace them. Something a bit more subtle and subversive. Something that won't immediately offend these conservatives, but will make them laugh and then seep into their conscious. I want to infect them with a dose of reality, not hit them with a sledgehammer. Subtly subversive.

So I need some cartoons, any suggestions? 3 strips, regular funny pages dimensions... Holler if you've got em.

It isn't exactly political, but Creased Comics have a certain surreal goofiness that tends to tickle people in weird places. That might help loosen up some conservative shoulders. http://www.palfloat.com/comic/

This might not be subtle enough but I think it would be great. It's only one though. There's also a link there incase you need a bigger pic.


perhaps the GET YOUR WAR ON strips are passe to the pro web-folk, but still relevant:

Or, you could create your own at stripcreator.com.... That would be ultra-fun, too.

hold tight, you've all inspired the plan, just need a free hour to cook it up for presenation...

One word: Boondocks.
