Sorry for the delay in posting the new cartoon. My absentmindedness is to blame. This cartoon was originally a ‘Lord Lionel’ cartoon (he was a British explorer and all the stereotypes that go with it) written and drawn for a Joe Kubert School seminar way back in 1987 or 1988 maybe. It was too good not to toss out since then. The simplicity comes from the fact that I had to do several comic strips overnight in the hotel room for critique next day at the seminar… and had spent the entire previous night driving there. No sleep+creativity=three black panels. There you go.
