Comics: 80s Nostalgia

Click for bigger/legible

I've never considered myself a cartoonist: I'm too lazy and not obsessive enough. That never stopped me from drawing comic strips, though, when I was bored or stuck in a place with nothing better to do. I like the one above, drawn in 1985 when I was 19, because it features a tasteless reference to Baby Fae, one of the most unlikely media celebrities of the decade.

The 91X t-shirt is meant to be ironic; I hated that radio station.

91X made me have a bad acid flashback from San Diego trips gone by. *shudder*

Ok, I had to look up Baby Fae.

Now I 'get it.' Good work!

Why did you have to look it up if there's a Wikipedia link right in the post?
