La Cucarcha (10/26/08)

It’s the Sunday before Hallowwen, which means the comics page is littered with holiday jokes. But this strip stood out for me by managing to take a hackneyed sentiment (that Sarah Palin would make a scary President) and turn it into something fresh and interesting. The rendering of Palin, for example, is perfectly eerie, what with the “President” sash, sinister grin and lack of pupils. I also like the single-panel format, which usually comes across as lazy in a Sunday strip, but in this case does a nice job of enunciating the outsized horror on the faces of the fleeing characters.
