Ron DeSantis’s Back-to-School Rules

Read the comic on Patreon.

Florida governor Ron DeSantis and Republicans in general have spent years demonizing teachers and cutting their funding, and are now dealing with teacher shortages as the school year begins. They’re sending cops and troops in to fill the vacancies, which I’m sure will end well.

One thing I’ve learned the last year or so of drawing this guy is that he’s always doing a third-rate Trump impression. He went to fancy schools, and can never nail it without adding a car dealership vibe to Trump’s awfulness.

Impression critique aside, he’s a fascist actively planning to steal elections. And unfortunately, Florida still has a lot of electoral votes that could decide the fate of the entire country.

2022 Valentines

Read the comic on Patreon.

This marks twenty years of me making fake Valentine’s cards for cartoons. I might’ve missed several years when I was on the NYT grind, so don’t quote me on that.

I had a cold this week that was surprisingly not COVID. While I don’t recommend getting sick, any excuse to avoid following the news makes for a better week.

The Cartoon Commandments

Read the full headline comic at The Nib.

If you’re not reading The Nib or subscribing to their newsletter, you’re missing out on headline comics like these, among other longform comics.

Here’s the article this headline is pulled from. The offending cartoon isn’t included in the piece, but it’s described like this:

Girgir had published in its latest edition a cartoon showing the bearded Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt, with his companions complaining and using vulgar curse words.

There’s been a huge crackdown on journalists and cartoonists as Erdogan consolidates power in Turkey. The publication shut itself down to avoid a similar fate to¬†what happened to cartoonist Musa Kart and his colleagues.
