It’s been a hell of a week for anyone following North American politics. The festering scandals on both sides of the border are too numerous and complex for me to summarize at the moment, so here’s a toon that tries. See how many references you can spot.
The reason I don’t have time to write a full essay for this toon is because I’m too busy getting ready for my appearance at the big fancy Vancouver Comic Arts Festival this weekend. It’s going to be my second-ever comic convention appearance, and I’m gonna have a ton of cool Filibuster-themed stuff for sale, including some cool brand new merch I designed specially for the show.
On Saturday I’m also going to be giving a talk with my good buddy Matt Bors on the future of editorial cartooning in North America. It’ll no doubt be a real fiesta of insight and cynicism.
Anyway, if it’s at all within your power, you should totally come visit me. VanCAF is completely free to attend, and it’s housed in the Roundhouse centre in scenic Yaletown. Thing runs from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, May 25, and then 11 am to 5 pm on Sunday the 26th.
See you there!
