I had a cartoon about the surge for today, but I decided to bust this one out while Barbaro is still eating up the front pages. Check back Friday and Saturday for more comics.
I’m mainly a verbose multi-panel type guy, buy one thing I love about doing one panels is stretching out and actually drawing some figures and a nice background instead of just talking heads.
As for Barbaro, August says it best:
It’s not even a heartwarming story, if you think about it. Someone took a horse, trained it to run fast, and during the course of exploiting its ability to run fast for the purpose of gambling, fatally crippled it. Yay, America!
