When Cartoonists Forget There’s a Three-Week Lag Between Drawing a Comic And Having It Appear

Cidu Bill on Oct 24th 2012

I mean seriously, you have to deal with the nature of your media: there are time-sensitive articles I’d love to include in the magazine I write for, but best-case-scenario there’s going to be a month’s gap between writing the article and the magazine containing it being published, so I can’t.

    And how did they manage to get unanimity from the Supremes?

    Diana Ross put her foot down.

    In all fairness, who could predict when or if the lock-out would end? So it was a bit of a gamble. It certainly lasted a lot longer than anybody expected.

    I suppose it’s not really current anymore, but still recent enough to be funny I think.

    Given the position of the goalposts, I initially wondered why the US Supreme Court was involved in the officiating of Canadian Football games… or NFL games prior to 1974 (or college football games prior to 1927, I guess).

    Forget or don’t care?

    Not all comics readers care if their sports comics are synchronized with the real world.

    “Given the position of the goalposts,”
    Sure, since all the attention went to the fact that the officials were locked out. Nobody noticed that they were using replacement equipment managers, too.

    I agree with Rick. If it hadnt been for the awful game deciding call at the end of Seattle vs Green Bay MNF, we would likely still be watching replacement refs bumble around. By all accounts the negotiations were nowhere near finished until public outcry became so massive after that pivotal blown call that the league quickly brought back the true officials. I’m just happy when cartoonists have new material, even if it isn’t breaking news.
