FC 83 - We Demand Total Coverage

Buried deep within this comic, there are some hints as to my thoughts on the current health care reform debate, most specifically the insurance portion of it*. But I went through various revisions of this until I found a framing/wording that made it less of an editorial comic than an attempt at being funny. I hope I did well enough that you chuckled rather than felt whatever editorial comics are supposed to make you feel*.

The drawing of this comic, however, took much longer than usual*. Luckily it is a labor of love, both for comics in general, but also circus-y stuff. If a protest like this was happening, I would turn out just to see the show. Hmmm...maybe that is a possible revenue stream for my circus performing buddies - a way to bring attention to a client's rally or protest. Who knows if that would be breaking moral bounds by joining a protest you didn't believe in just because they gave you money. I suppose being a performer's agent to organize something like that would be seedier still. Alas.

Thanks to Saxtor for catching my typo...again. (although techically it wasn't it a typo, just ignorance on my part.)

I definitely chuckled. My favorite is the cannonball guy's sign... But no juggler? I say he should be juggling a few picket signs (maybe "Don't drop the ball on health care", "Toss in a public option" or "Juggle clubs, not co-pays"?)

I think this one's my favorite all time. My feedback is that I think it could do without the dialogue or whatever it's called at the bottom. It's funny by itself!
