New toon

The gun.

Also: don’t know how I missed it, but my friend Jen Sorensen had a “talking gun/hypnotized owner” panel a couple of months ago. Sorry Jen!

…this is what I wrote about this toon for Sparky’s List subscribers:

A rather grim cartoon this week, obviously inspired by the Jordan Davis case. I was rolling that one around in my mind, and the thing I kept coming up with was: no gun, no problem. Without a gun in his glove box, Michael Dunn is just another asshole who fumes quietly to himself, and Jordan Davis doesn’t have his life cut off before it’s barely begun. And everybody gets whatever they came to the Quicky-Mart to buy, and an hour later nobody ever gives any of it another thought.

And then this image, this idea jumped into my head — the old Twilight Zone episodes, in which some totemic object would speak to the main character and drive him slowly insane — the ventroliquist’s dummy, or that fortune telling devil on the diner table.

And this is where I ended up.
