If this cartoon idea had been Googled, we would not have to be seeing it again…
I would think go comics, in interest of their readers (and in protection of their cartoonists) would at the very least highly recommend that their cartoonists GOOGLE ideas to make sure they’re not just doing the exact same cartoons over and over.
No cartoonist has ever given a good reason as to why they shouldn’t do a simple Google check. It takes seconds. Just the fact that cartoonists don’t even try to defend their not checking Google is very revealing.
