The Tattooed Bandit

I did this comic for the opinion section of The Oregonian on Sunday--my first comic on a local issue for them.

Sheriff Bernie Giusto is barely hanging on to his job. The list of ethical violations he has committed is too long to go into, but a recent one is laid out in the first panel so you can understand the comic even if you don't known who the guy is. The last panel is a reference to Portland's recent crackdown on fare dodgers on the light rail.

It felt great doing something on a local topic. All of my comics are on national issues and it's hard to imagine Bush and all the presidential candidates seeing my work. A local comic is pretty satisfying because the target has a chance to read it.

I'll be doing local work for them from time to time and will post it here.
