Number 1652: All politics is loco
I looked around for a comic about elections and found this funny story from Little Iodine #1 (1950). Iodine was a character invented by cartoonist Jimmy Hatlo, She was “an embodiment of all the brats I knew,” according to the surly Hatlo. The comic book ran until the early sixties. Hatlo’s signature comic panel, “They’ll Do It Every Time,” was very successful, but labor intensive. Hatlo used assistants, who I assume worked on the comic book. Like most successful cartoonists, though, Hatlo’s signature was the only byline.
Finally, to my fellow Americans of voting age...remember to vote. You can’t complain about the winners if you don’t do your part.
here. You can see several of Hatlo’s “They’ll Do It Every Time” panels from the Hairy Green Eyeball blog here.
