Philadelphia Weekly

Back in the year 2000, I was asked to design two alternate covers for Philadelphia Weekly’s election issue. This issue would go to print on Tuesday night election night, and be in newsstands on Wednesday morning. One was to depict Bush winning (note the family car on its way to Canada) and the other would show Gore (the marching band with the guilty Nader voter). I recall being on the phone that afternoon with the art director, Jeff Cox, and him telling me the fear was that we’d get to midnight and still not know.
Well, most of us remember how that turned out. I woke up the next day hungover from the late night Florida surprise to find this third cover in the newspaper boxes around town. Jeff had to throw it together in 15 minutes when it was clear that the election wasn’t over. I remember being bummed that my cover would never see the light of day, and thinking that elections couldn’t ever get any worse than that one, and now the whole thing just seems so quaint.
I’m with Her.

In which the entire series is revealed to be nothing but a dream, Dallas-style, and where it’s made clear that the author has some work to do before he is to be taken seriously as a writer and halfway decent cartoonist. Thank you for watching. It’s been a productive twenty-five years since these strips were first published and it’s been fun to go back and read them again over the last few months.

Twenty-five years after doing these strips, I kind of wish I’d done more of these non-sequitur episodes. This one refers to this one from April 4, 1987.
