The Other Fat Guy 2016

Christie may have finally destroyed his chances at president. 
Good. He'd be a terrible candidate, even outside of his scandal.

And we need another Bush in the White House the way we need four more years of Obama. Statists on the left, Statists on the right, Enough of this crap. We Need a Patriot. We need someone who will go to Washington to work towards putting it back in its place.

Really, REALLY Electable

"Mitt Romney leads the Republican field among New Hampshire primary voters for 2016" which says all you need to know about New Hampshire primary voters. They would have us believe that Mr. unelectable 2012 is now Really, REALLY Electable in 2016. And yesterday, I read that Mike *uckabee was a frontrunner. Voters will forget these losers and get serious soon.

This is about what Should happen to a president who acts as if Congress is an optional avenue for legislation. 

We need more of this in Washington….

Bono Sings the Praises of Capitalism

I was just reminded on twitter about how Bono recently acknowledged the value of Capitalism.

It was great to hear since I've been a long time fan of U2.
Here's a sketch I did of Bono around twenty years ago.

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Others' Happiness?

I was just listening to the end of an archived episode of Mark Levin's radio show from last week and heard this:

Mark Levin : "Is happiness the end all be all?"

Hugh Hewitt : "Not our own, but the happiness of others."

So our Founding Fathers fought for Life, Liberty and the pursuit of others' happiness? Obama has uttered the same claptrap. And we act surprised that Obama has had his way with the American right.

Both right and left want us to sacrifice our own happiness for something they deem to be more important. Here's Ayn Rand's answer to that:

"The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master."

Christie's Mea Gulpa

I don't want to rehash all of my problems with Chris Christie (check out my posts on him here) but I wanted to excerpt something I read on about Christie's traffic scandal press conference:

"Chris Christie came out on Thursday to give a master class in how to handle a national political scandal and media frenzy."

I find that kind of writing unseemly, especially by someone who's not in politics. I'm not impressed by Christie's desperate efforts to save his presidential hopes, I'm just glad he took a big political hit today, because he's the last kind of "republican" we need in office, post-Obama.

Table for One is Ten Years Old

" I walk into a crowded room, not a soul in sight."

It's the 10th anniversary of my first graphic novel, Table for One, which came out in February of 2004. It was my first professional comic book work and my introduction to the medium that I love. I "pitch" the book as "Dirty Harry as a Waiter."

Below is an ad I designed for it for the Previews catalog. Table for One garnered me a Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer award nomination, an Eisner Award nomination for Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition and an endorsement by the great Alex Toth. You can order a signed copy of the book below. It's 88 pages, square-bound, black & white with gray wash, and anything that can happen does happen all in one night in an underground restaurant in Manhattan. (Also see my Table for One print)

My synopsis: It's one hell of a night in an underground restaurant in Manhattan. William Howland's boss bet against him lasting a year as a waiter under him. It's pay-up time. But on this night, Will's code to treat all as they deserve doesn't serve anyone well, and he might not even last the night. And then she walks in…

Check out what they're saying about Table for One…

In addition to the print addition, (available for order below) Table for One is now available as a digital graphic novel on ComiXology. 

(For a discounted package deal of my two print books, go here.)

Marvel & DC Comics: Islam's Bitches

My latest piece, 10 Truths Mainstream Comic Books Evade to Promote 'Muslim Superheroes' is now on the PJ Media front page. Here's my intro:

The Muslim terrorist is a cliché. But only in real life. And in post-9/11 comic books, “Muslim superheroes” are becoming a cliché. As a cartoonist and as a recovered Muslim working on an anti-jihad graphic novel called The Infidel, featuring Pigman, I’ve identified certain truths that Marvel and DC Comics have to evade in order to shove their “Muslim superheroes” down the throats of their readers.

Before I move on to my list, I want to add that I put “Muslim superheroes” in quotes because Marvel and DC Comics want to promote “Muslim superheroes” without promoting Muslim superheroes. They want to promote their fantasy version of what they would like Muslim superheroes to be, not Islam’s version. As I’ve argued in my work, a good Muslim by our standards is a bad Muslim by Islamic standards. Therefore, a true Muslim superhero would be a Muslim supervillain.

The #1 Truth they evade is the fact that We Are At War. And here's a look at what Marvel & DC have to avoid in order to kiss Islam's ass: Islam's victims on 9/11/01.
