That Poor Ceiling

Since I am not well versed enough in what is currently going on in politics to really talk about this comic and Curt is currently somewhere in the wilds of the Mississippi Mini-Storage dead-zone, this strip will just have to stand on it’s own merits for the most part.

I will add these two things though:
1) Since I’m not a particularly gifted caricaturist, I’ll tell you that that’s John Boehner behind President Obama in the first panel.
2) I was once again aided on coloring duties by the talented Joe Hunter (ghostbucket.com), who will be working with me in this capacity on a semi-regular basis around these parts. While Curt and I have obviously been collaborating creatively for some time, it’s fun to get to play around with collaborating on just the art side and see how someone else interprets your ideas.

As I said with our last strip, I’ll remind you that you can buy a print of this or any of our other strips in the LBFA Store. Prints are currently on sale, plus there are multiple other things in there that you can buy to help us continue doing this comic for you for free.

No pressure. We’re just saying. And what we’re saying is, we need your money.

    Are we sure that’s not The Smoking Man from X-Files standing behind Obama?

    Boehner’s face needs to be about 800% more orange. Otherwise, great strip guys.

    I had colored him oranger, but then I found myself fighting off the urge to give him green hair.

    I’m really happy that you managed to get Dum Dum Dugan in the background there. I’m really just legitimately happy every time I see Dum Dum and his awesome ‘stache, to be honest.

    Guys, the stripe under the star is always red. It’s rule #1 of Captain America’s costume.

    I know that, but in Joe’s defense, I think he colored Cap’s costume more in line with the movie version since I drew all of the Howling Commandos like their movie versions.

    seen the new cover for justice league? i know you guys did one about fewer female writers, but can we assess the 2nd guesswork of going back and taking wonder womans pants away?

    or more important political stuff is cool too like the walking dead crew pushing for the importance of renewable energy and organic food

    I know it’s supposed to be John Boehner, but the first panel is actually an almost dead-on caricature of Mark Sheppard’s “Canton Delaware,” a character from the most recent season premiere of Doctor Who.

    Get out of dbt today. Bankruptcy is a dirty scary word.
    But oncfe you learn the ins and outs of bankruptcy it is
    not so scary anymore. In fact, you may conclude it is your best chance at starting a new future.
