This cartoon appeared in the April 2009 Dollars and Sense magazine (an actual economics magazine), written and penciled by Charles M.

One panel also includes a tiny caricature of Christopher Eccleston as Dr. Who.

After getting Connie's permission, I eventually drew the strip, with help from the awesome Bill Mudron, who unlike me can draw that goddamn weird-ass helmet Darth Vader wears.
