Motorcycle Cops! And I’m dreaming of a white Santa…

Cops on motorcycles arrive to chase Revolutionary Grrl down the street.

OMG--I'm starting to hear the "From Russia With Love" excitement music!

Well, I’m doing a bit better today–at least my nose isn’t dripping like a faucet. How I LOVE winter colds! Add to that, an old filling came out and the dentist examined the tooth and guess what? I need another crown! I swear, I’ll have nothing but crowns in my mouth in a few years, more than the crowned heads left in Europe.

Anyway, it took me longer to do today’s episode, the final one of 2013. That’s right, as Revolutionary Grrl gets chased by motorcycle cops, appearing from what suspiciously looks like the entrance to the underpass at Dupont Circle, and ducks around a corner, we leave her for the winter hiatus. Christmas and New Year’s, Russian Christmas (a staple in my family)–my, that red lettering in the cartoon is mighty Festive! I have lots to do before the convention season begins in February, so I’ll stay on hiatus until January 20. OK, sorry about coming back Martin Luther King Day, but, better I take off the 13th and return the next week, than come back for one episode and then have another break the very the next week.

Speaking about winter holidays, tho’, it seems there is a brouhahahahahaha going on about Santa Claus. Wow, did you realize that he was really a WHITE GUY? Thanks, Megyn Kelly of Fox News, you’ve certainly put all those little black kids in their places:

“You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry,
Better not pout, I’m telling you why…
Santa Claus is joining the Klan,
Oh, man!

He sees you when you’re sleeping.
He knows when you’re awake,
He’s built a cross that he will stake
And burn just to make you quake!”

Ah, how I’m dreaming of a WHITE CHRISTMAS, Megyn! Just as white as the blue-eyed, golden-haired Jesus that you’ve painted for me. I’d drink an eggnog to you, but with that yellow egg yolk and brown brandy and nutmeg, it might not be white enough for you. How about some milk–with the cookies you put out for Santa. That’s right, VANILLA WAFERS. Oreos and chocolate chips? Much too suspiciously multi-cultural for your White Christmas.

Anyway, Happy Holidays, people! And for you non-Christians, Happy Kwanza, Gode Yule, Festivus for the Rest of us, and most of all, have a Sated Saturnalia. IO! SATURNALIA! And fear not–We’ll actually get to the plot before Katsucon in February! And remember to vote this up on Reddit and LIKE it on Facebook! See you next year!

Spray Paint and a Salute to Veteran’s Day

Sleepers, Awake

Watch, therefore, for you know not the day nor the hour...

Revolutionary Grrl spray paints a warning across the window of the 1st International Megabank, “Sleepers, Awake.” Is that all she wrote? Find out next week.

Ehhhhh, the page looked better in lineart–I’ll figure out a revision before publishing in print form.

And we upload, one day late because of Veteran’s Day. You remember Veteran’s Day, don’t you? The day all the congresspersons who’ve voted against Veterans’ Benefits get to wave flags and make speeches about how important our troops are. Notice I didn’t say veterans–we only “support the troops”, not the veterans. It seems vets have something in common with fetuses–as long as they’re inside, they’re important, but once they’re out, hey, you’re on your own, Jack. Saying “Thank you for your service,” is a nice cheap way to get around it.

Now if we really wanted to support our troops–and support the veterans as well–we’d pay them a decent wage while they’re in the service. You know, something comparable to what we paid the mercenaries, I mean, civilian contractors we used while we fought two wars of choice in the last decade that we weren’t paying for because they’d pay for themselves with all that Iraqi oil that we never got. Instead of spending the money on a bunch of boondoggle toys for the Pentagon that nobody really wants.

But that would be intelligent and despite the NSA’s best efforts, there IS no intelligence in Washington. So, instead, we salute our veterans. Thanks for your service. Maybe one day, we’ll actually do something to show our appreciation.

And while we’re at it, money, not just prayer, is needed for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. CBSNews has a page devoted to how you can help.

And The Anthony Wiener Lifetime Achievement Award Goes To …

The Anthony Wiener Lifetime Achievement Award

TADAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Carlos Danger?
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

CARLOS DANGER?
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

CARLOS DANGER?
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
hahahahahahahahahahahaha

hahahahahaaaaaaaaaa!

(AR)Anthony J. Wiener, candidate for Mayor of New York City, was presented today with the Anthony Wiener Lifetime Achievement Award at being a dick. The award, named for Anthony Wiener after his last Twitter flashing scandal, was presented to Wiener after the story of his latest sexting fiasco went pubic … err, public. Mr. Wiener said that weathering his latest crisis will make him a better mayor, and when presented with the celebratory brass phallus and balls, said, “Aww, guys, you shouldn’t have. Seriously, you shouldn’t have.”

Actually, Anthony–YOU shouldn’t have! You want to be a better mayor? STOP HAVING S**T FOR BRAINS!

(Note to self: find Anthony Wiener’s Porn Name Generator.)

I realize that this week’s cartoon isn’t very complex, but after I saw John Cuneo’s New Yorker cover, I realized that nothing could top it. This is one cover that really stands out, up and out there!

In any case, it is time to announce my summer hiatus. From August to early September, I will either be prepping for conventions or actually attending them. I will be at Otakon at the Baltimore Convention Center, August 8-11, where I will have pictures in the Art Show and will be taking pictures of cosplayers and having a good time. August 23-25 will see me at Intervention Con, at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville, in Artists Alley. And from September 13 through September 15, I will be at AnimeUSA at the Washington Wardman Park Marriott, once again in the Art Show and schmoozing. We will return on September 23 and we hope we will have an ADDITIONAL FEATURE to share with you then! Watch this space and my Facebook page for further announcements!

Fred and Bert Squirrel join me in wishing you a great summer! See you soon!
