Yes, it's true my friends. This comic strip was supposed to run in The Kalamazoo Weekly News (it's usual weekly venue) on Thursday April 24th. The Managing Editor of the paper shot down this strip, which forced my contact at the paper to rerun an old strip. While preventing this strip from appearing, he proceeded to ask (through my contact) for either some funny material about local events and issues, or perhaps the upcoming election. Maybe something more like "Far Side or The Lighter Side."
Yeah, he's asking for a comic strip completely different than the strip he has been running for the past six months. Below, you will find the strip that was denied. Please, let me hear your thoughts.

A poster for Shakespeare's "Othello." The ominous, haunted tone of this piece to meant to convey the darkness of the themes on which the plot is built; jealousy, betrayal, lust, and murder. Interesting factoid: The antagonist of this play, Iago, has the most dialog of any other character in Shakespeare's entire body of work. That has nothing to do with this assignment.
