Komics KKKorner (03/12/12)

While I would prefer to mix things up and spread the ridicule to other shitty right wing artists, I just couldn't pass up this opportunity to mock Michael Ramirez's latest masterpiece:

Oh, boy.

The reference here is pretty self evident. Ramirez saw a commercial for Jack the Giant Slayer and thought he should make a comic about it. Of course, it's perfectly fine to draw something from the popular culture, but as is the case with Ramirez, the problem tends to be that he's quite terrible at metaphors.

Someone really needs to tell Ramirez that in the original Jack and the Beanstalk (and I presume, also in Jack The Giant Slayer), the Giant was supposed to be the bad guy.

I've noticed that Right-wing comics tend to take characters from famous stories and classical lore, the kind that people generally see in a positive light and somehow turn them into evildoers. For example...

Robin Hood:

And Santa Claus:

What's next? Obama depicted as Tiny Tim trying to steal money from that innocent job creator, Ebenezer Scrooge?
