Comics, Politics & Ridicule

Surprisingly I heard from a few people that it's "too soon" to do a comic about the political implications of the Boston bombing. One even preemptively unfriended me last night on Facebook so angry was he that I was releasing a cartoon on the subject that he hadn't seen yet. If you think it's "too soon" for a comic about the political implications of the bombing, there's plenty of "evil is bad" comics out there for you. A Senator has already called for military tribunals for foreigners. A Saudi was tackled for suspiciously running away from the explosions. This is clearly going to result in more Homeland Security money being dumped into police departments so they buy new toys and harass people with backpacks. I'm not going to sit on my hands because a tragedy happened.
