Marilyn Strickland is a nice person. Yeah the squares dog on her because she doesn't have an 18 page resume or make a spectacle of herself standing up for things passion(s) ablaze, but is that what the people of Tacoma really need in a mayor?  Our Citizens expect a meek, sleepy-time performance from their channel 12 TV Tacoma... keeps old folks at the convalescent home in that contented glaze making sponge bath night for clover park technical college graduates a chore of minimal effort.  Right now we have a city council acting as one unified organism. No ups and no surprises. Please. Vote Strickland--the safe choice!

Good panel and accompanying diagram RR. I like your drawings so much I bought my daughter a wacom tablet for her birthday.

I don't know, that Merritt circle gram is pretty mesmerizing:

Make sure to snag her a copy of photoshop from somewhere too. You can find all kinds of tutorials on

though truth be told, Stowe is really the wacom king

That Venn diagram totally makes my Monday. Er, Tuesday.

If the Merritt campaign is going to take the 's' out of our educations, by gum someone has to keep it in there.

Next thing you know they're going to be making our students watch him on the teevee, and he'll be (gasp) telling them to STUDY HARD and STAY IN SCHOOL. Scandalous!

need more coffee...

Marilyn just confirmed purchase of her Tacomic. She wants venn diagram and all. Good form! I love candidates who can take a joke. :)

RR's recommended Cartooning Student Resources:

these are in the public domain now, every cartoonist should print out hard copies. Real good info...

I am starting to think all of the candidates are scared NOT to buy your Tacomic RR.

As for the Venn diagrams, I think every candidate needs one, perhaps it should be mandatory for the voters pamphlet.

RR, either you're holding out on us, or Merritt took your Venn Diagram advice as a blessing, because you're listed on his highly-padded endorsement page (which lists Shawn Bunney three times and four other people twice). Awesome.

Now, if you can just get listed on Strickland's endorsement page, too, think of the power you will hold!

Whoa, more than four people listed twice! That guy is a master of résumé padding.

RR, now I challenge you to be listed TWICE on each candidate's endorsement page. I know you can do it.

I had requested a Strickland sign but it appeared at my neighbors house. However, I will accept your challenge!

Strickland enjoyed her Tacomic. Also @AnagramPress, check it out!

Wow, Big Brother Merritt is watching! No more double/triple/quadruple-name résumé padding for him. He took out all the doubles from his endorsements page:

Bummer, RR. But you still have a Harriet Tubman print comin' your way. You done me proud.
