First off, sorry for the late entry. It’s been a busy day but, hey – better late than never, eh?
Alright, today’s throw-away is a rough that never made it to production. And again, my roughs are very rough – so today you get the opportunity to see the kind of chaotic scribbling my editors have to put up with… And this is one of the more refined selections. Ha.
Anyhow, if you haven’t seen The Godfather you may not get the reference for today’s panel – which, I suppose, narrows the joke’s reach somewhat. However, that’s not why it was rejected.
It was rejected because newspaper editors
would probably never would never allow the word, “feces” to appear in their comics section.
Next week, I’ll revisit a panel that was pulled by a major metro paper for it’s “innuendo” and include the panel that I submitted in response.
