MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE–LUTEFISK SUSHI ‘C’–pg 5(of 6), also: Jam Comics Tonight, and “Yeah, he wears ‘bling’ now”

This “one week only”  tale was written by now-frequent collaborator/writer BRIAN BASTIAN.   It was originally the second story featured in MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE #0, but also a part of our submission for LUTEFISK SUSHI ‘C’ .  Brian is here to join us–once again!–for some behind-the-scenes retrospectacizing on this 6 page epic:

BRIAN BASTIAN:  It was the Bush era.  8 years of…well, you know.  You were there.  If you weren’t there, I really don’t think there are words that could really capture it.

DANNO KLONOWSKI:  *bleck* comes to mind.  That or the noise of a really long fart  that ends in all your internal organs shooting out thru your urethra. 

BASTIAN:     Anyway, I try not to bring too much politics into my writing (although that might change in the future) but I was getting really tired of reading article after article, or seeing interview upon interview, where the government would bring up Al-Qaeda and say they have evidence….AND THEN NEVER TELL US WHAT THE EVIDENCE WAS!!  I know there are probably lots of reasons, some of them might even make sense, but it was just killing me.  If even once I could have seen an interview where someone even asked what that evidence was it might have calmed me down.  But they didn’t.  And so I had to write this, or have a stroke.  Time will tell if I made the right choice.

DANK:  Well that “era” was all about keeping us all on the brink of losing our shit.  Everyone ground their teeth.  It was that kind of vibe.  Now we’re treated like children being told “Everything is fine.  Nothing to see here” as Godzilla rapes the Statue of Liberty.  But the iPAD will be out soon and then I can upload my comics to ibooks and make millions, so who cares, right?

   ALSO:  Maybe the iPAD will be a topic of tonight’s MINNEAPOLIS CARTOONIST CONSPIRACY JAM.  Or maybe Godzilla raping the Statue of Liberty.  Who can say?  Stop by DIAMONDS and find out for yourself.

  FINALLY:   Bling-a-ding-ding.  I sure like today’s Daily Goal Sketch–SCARFACE:
