I just got this package in the mail today. This is the back cover to Steve Lafler's latest comic, Death In Oaxaca. Looks like it will be a fun read.
The package also contained a couple of free comics. Runner Runner is from Tugboat Press in Portland, featuring "a cover story by Megan Kelso about the good witch of the Puget Sound and her struggles with daily life as a single mother. Sam Alden provides a stunningly beautiful story about a lost young woman who stumbles across a mysterious train heading to parts unknown. Also comics by Liz Prince, Sam Sharpe, Andy Hartzell, Jason Martin & Tessa Brunton, Minty Lewis & Damien Jay, Elijah Brubaker, Chris Duffy, and Jeremy Tinder."
Barrio Mothers was the other free comic. Edited by Emily Nilsson,Jason Leivian, Jack Hayden, and Tim Goodyear; published by Sparkplug Books, Floating World Comics, Snakebomb Comix, and Teenage Dinosaur. Features the work of Nick Norman, Josh Juresko, Sophie Franz, Karissa Sakumoto, Asher Z Craw, Wally Catton, Andrew Scully, and Cameron Hawkey.
A quick flip through all the books and things look interesting!
I got all this for under $8 (shipping included) from Wow Cool

I'd hoped to have this finished in time for the 40th anniversary of Nixon's resignation, but these cartoons always take longer than you expect, especially since I decided to color them. Meanwhile, my 80 year old Betty Boop broke her elbow and shoulder, so I'll be spending the next week taking care of her. So, here you go, the entire Nixon story in unfinished drawings.
I grew up in Massachusetts, and Massachusetts was the only state in the 1972 election that Nixon did not carry. Being called "Nixon" in Massachusetts was indeed a slur, even before the Watergate business.
Anyways, we can laugh about it now. When I finally finish putting the eyebrow on this comic, I'll make some high res scans and throw it on the Gumroad page as a pay what you want download. Maybe I'll make greyscale hardcopies, maybe not.
UPDATE: Greetings to the visitors from Crooks and Liars (Many Thanks, Tengrain!) Feel free to leave a comment, don't be shy!
