Bounding from obsession to obsession.
*sigh*I've been trying to get a run of that title, for a lil while, now.No love.

I think it's cool that a 40's era comic had black people who weren't monkeys. What year was this?
I forgot to delete that last line.
I like how there are black and Asian soldiers, but the Hispanic guy is a miner. Ummm... ^_^;
"... shall perish forever from this Earth!"Mmmm... 'cuz there's nothing more American than genocide?No, wait... Mr. Rumsfeld, I'm not-- no...-- WAI---!!!We apologize for the inconvenience, as this blogger has just been deported. We now return you to your regularly scheduled Independence Day.
Anon -- 1943Sandi -- Actually, I suspect that guy is of Italian ancestry, but that's because I'm from a coal mining area with a large Italian-American population.Jenn -- They finally up and sent you back to Canada, huh?
you shoulda seen me earlier with my canadian flag worn ever so defiantly on the most american-est of all holidays. :)
on the coal miner -- interesting, i thought he was asian (a reference to the number of asian railroad workers sent into mountains with sticks of dynamite to blow it up). are we all projecting?
I'm a softy for American propaganda. Silly, for sure, but I guess I have a weird perspective. With respect to other countries, I love America. That being said, I don't like what is currently going on with our country and its closed-mindedness. oh well. this picture is pretty funny though. is that "W" next to the man with the yellow hat? lol
(*Pbblltt* Next Canada Day I'm coming over to your blog and making mountie jokes.)And you've hit upon the beauty of Golden Age art -- it's just shaky enough that we can project at some characters.
Sagejester -- Actually, we'd be in much better straights right now if certain citizens were to internalize the above propaganda message.
I agree. I am working on a web comic that is about essentially that American spirit, equality, liberty and pride in an super-heroic idealistic sense. I procrastenate lots though, so I fear it will be awhile before I get it off the ground. :(
Well, when you do eventually get it off the ground -- Link me. I've got a major patriotic streak in me no matter who's in office.
