Artist's Statement

The truth about this cartoon, which I will share with you website visitors, is that I originally drew it as a change-of-address postcard to notify all my friends that I was moving to New York for the winter. And then what with the frantic confusion of moving, I never found time to draw a cartoon for the week, and submitted this in desperation at the last minute, hoping that it would be funny enough. I promise new, non-recycled material next week.

The geeky cognoscenti among you won't need to be told, but in case anyone else cares, the characters appearing in this cartoon include: Batman at the upper left, Superman ascending in front of the building, Doc Savage (whose headquarters are on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building) in the zeppelin, the Fantastic Four (three in their flying Baxter Car plus the Human Torch, who's traced the F.F.'s trademark 4 in the sky), and of course Ol' Webhead, all of them converging on King Kong, who is atop the E.S.B. swatting biplanes out of the sky.

I have been here for three days now. So far, no superhero sightings.
