In the ignorance of her current weight, I opted to use the fat Oprah here in the same manner as I might employ the fat Elvis. It's a simple fact, fat people are funnier. For the record, the joke isn't that Oprah's ugly (cause I've never made that joke before), it's that she's a megalomaniac.
My favorite part of this strip is the turtleneck/underboob top she's wearing. I know it's not a permanent part of her wardrobe but it's somehow so much easier to caricature her with the iconic neck warmer sweater.

This weekend's been a real shitshow so far because I've had to get next week's comic done as well as this one since I'll be in North Carolina next weekend with my improv group. Surprisingly they both turned out really well. I also found out I got a table in MoCCA so I've got to spend the rest of the day formating a new comic to be printed in time.
These are all good things, they're just making a lot of extra work on short notice. Gotta bitch about something or I wouldn't have anything to say.

I've had the idea for this one in the bank for a while. The original caption was "After may years of violence and lawlessness, Iraq finds peace under a Funk Parliamentary System of government." I may change it back to that in a few months with the country switched to Afghanistan because, unfortunately, that seems like it'll be relevant for longer.
Really the joke is just dudes in combo P-funk/traditional Arab garb getting applause from a legislative body. Just need to justify why it somehow makes sense which is admittedly a stretch no matter what the global political situation is.
