PLEASE READ THIS! I know these notes are mostly being read by you fine people in production, but could you do me a huge favor and pass this one along to your editors? I have a new trade paperback compilation out -- you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for info and (I think!) review copies. I also have a potential tv series in the works -- Film Roman, the animation studio that does the production work on The Simpsons has taken out an option on This Modern World! AND I have a new Italian compilation in the works, and as if all that weren't enough, there will be a second edition of last year's crowdfunded career compilation (which raised $310K on Kickstarter) via my American publisher coming out next Spring. If you want to write about any or all of this contact me! email@example.com
NOTE:If new cartoon is not showing up please try hitting "shift-refresh."
NEW: Scroll to bottom for backup cartoons (for extreme emergency use ONLY).

NOTE: TWO VERSIONS! The "extended" version is a third taller than usual -- it's the same cartoon, but with more room for the art to breathe. There's not a blackline of this version available. If you can afford the space, I'd recommend the taller version.
ONLINE CLIENTS: be sure to use the "extended" version.

Just putting it out there, in case your editors are interested in an easy way to get some more convention content into the paper. Note--extended is available in color only.

--ONLINE PUBLICATIONS: please download the EXTENDED VERSION
--PRINT PUBLICATIONS: If you are able to give me a little extra room, I'd recommend using the extended version -- the idea of this cartoon is to demonstrate the sheer overload of crazy that we've been through with Trump over the past year, and the more examples there are, the better.

I'm posting a couple of evergreen reruns, to be used only in case of emergency. Please note, these are only here in the event of a week when you're on deadline and there's no new cartoon and you can't reach me ... which will probably mean I'm dealing with some kind of major personal emergency ... it's a small insurance policy for all of you; please don't cash it in early or it may not be there when you really need it!
