Josh Humphries - Are these supposed to have any element of humor in them? I agree with the politics but I cant tell if the intention is to put a spin on the subject matter or if it's just in the format of a comic strip but without any form of humor or punchline. I dont think the comic strip format is reserved only for humor but the basic tenets of a one panel strip has me expecting either a punchline or a sense of irony, hypocrisy or both, layed wide open.

Muhammad Rasheed - Josh wrote: "... me expecting either a punchline or a sense of irony, hypocrisy or both..."

Considering 'socialism' and it's related systems are traditionally presented in the modern day as the natural counter to the 1% grifter class' crony corporatism, you don't recognize the irony in the revelation "that unhindered concentration of power leads predictably to socialism that is antagonistic to our system?"

Josh Humphries - I do, but only if I concentrate really hard, and even then I cant tell if Ive missed something. You pack alot into a single balloon. Thanks for getting back to me.

Muhammad Rasheed - lol No prob.

MEDIUM: Scanned pen & ink cartoon drawing w/Adobe Photoshop color.
