Jeff Bezos’ Monopoly Spree

Read the comic on Patreon.

Not only should Amazon be broken up, Jeff Bezos’ fortune AND his acutal physical form should be as well. This monster amassed even greater fortunes during the pandemic, while subjecting his employees to grinding in miserable conditions.

Eventually he and Elon Musk will monopolize enough of the world, that they’ll be the only two businessmen I have to know how to draw.

Martin Scorsese Roasts Your Fandom

I like a lot of dumb pop culture. We unwind (My wife from her real job, me from, uh, this.) at our house by watching 90 Day Fiance and Below Deck. I’m not going to cry if a great director points out that they’re not prestige television.

Comcast’s Spending Spree

While the world’s justifiably preoccupied, the largest media, tech and telecom companies are merging into giant monopolies that make Robocop’s OmniCorp look like a mom and pop operation.

It was hard to come up with a comic this week. Details of ICE’s reign of terror are what I’m most outraged about, but I’ve done several ICE cartoons recently and had nothing to say besides, “Abolish ICE. Then prosecute its agents at the Hague.”

The Amazon Economy

If you enjoy my work and can afford to, please consider supporting it on Patreon.

Jeff Bezos is buying Whole Foods and now Amazon’s one step closer to becoming the kind of monopolistic mega-corporation previously only seen in the Robocop franchise.

The days of antitrust laws are long gone, but maybe one day there will be the political will to break up Bezos’ empire like Ma Bell and Standard Oil.
