Drifting on a raft somewhere in and out of consciousness I received this splendid vision of an alternate reality perhaps 20 minutes into the future. Who knows how it found me. A programming error?  A glitch in the time shower? A chilling disturbance in the force? Too many post-apocalyptic film marathon podcasts? One can wonder. However, I am very proud of my "Post-Apocalyptic Dictators" Tacomic. The story so far...

A. Big Brother Bill Baarsma - called the PROFSOC decade (Professor Socialism) regime ruled almost 10 years before coup d'etat in summer of 2014.

B. El Senor Presidente Richardo Solaris - swept into power by great hoards climate-change refugees Solar Richard, vested with social capital, restored light to the city-state. Serving 4 consecutive 8 year terms as president. His body is entombed and viewable at the Solar Tacoma Dome Mausoleum.  

D. Honorable State Master Robert Jesse "The Traveller" Hill (Current King {Note use of crow feathers on football shoulder pads})

Back next week with all new Tacomics!  Stories we're following: Sounder Vs. Tacoma Rescue Mission; i1098 Hell-Yeah Income Tax the Rich; Some kind of Bare-Foot Bandit cartoon... but what is important to you?

Using solar panels on the sunglasses is awesome.

This Tacomic is unique as it is not simply reactionary to current events of the week but is visionary.

Cute couple.

After watching numerous council meetings and reviewing the minutes I'm inclined to think your vision of the future would be an improvement.

Here are some recent news stories which would lend themselves to wonderful tacomics:

Ferry worker calls in sick every time he wants to go to a baseball game.

DOT constructs a million dollar exit ramp to nowhere.

Teachers retire with lavish pension benefits then resume working at their old job 30 days later.

Councilwoman Victoria Woodards announces that racial profiling is wrong, then promotes Ethnic Fest as way to celebrate racial differences.

This is one of my favorites for sure!

is there really a camel toe in this cartoon

how dare you!

while we wait for an official statement from Angela's handlers, enjoy this TANK RIOT podcast about nightmare president Ronald Regan:

(Ronnie was directly responsible for inspiring some of the best post apocalypse cinema)

Well I do remember Ronald Reagan's excellent narration in Air Seige (Ploesti).Is this the pistol that Angela is holding?

by NineInchNachos on 7/20/2010 @ 7:17pm
broom-handle. correct sir.

Ronald Regan did make Ronald Regan Jr. so he can't be all bad.

I just want to say that it is not at all vain for me to have my own name tattooed on my stomach - its a sign of good self esteem and my imaginary boyfriend wants you to know that he has way more hats than Mr. Hill, a much bigger loin cloth and way better female masturbation skills. His words, not mine.

your comment is full of win Ms. Jossy

by JesseHillFan on 7/20/2010 @ 8:59pm
Still RJH probably admires Angela's Mauser though.

Where are the tacomic thumbnails?

by NineInchNachos on 7/25/2010 @ 9:04pm
Dear Fredo,
try going to the tacomic landing page

and you just gotta plug though the different months for the thumbnail you need. There is currently no option for the old all thumbnails at once type display.

You can also seek out keywords using your browser find function (control f) from the main monster comics page..

- - -

but when I get really desperate I just use a main google search.

@angela - now THAT was funny. Your comments were witty, not winny.

Lawful Evil... who needs flames reflecting in your glasses when you have them on your fez!

nachos, I liked it better when all the tacomics could be tiled like the flikr pictures. I wanted to show Dino Rossi one of your cartoons on Saturday on my ipad but couldn't find one that was relevant to him.

by NineInchNachos on 7/26/2010 @ 9:49am
awe man! sorry Fredo! I should do a new Rossi cartoon. Something with more Clint :)

by NineInchNachos on 1/7/2011 @ 1:31pm
so much waste!

it's common sense sheeple!
