So, last weekend I had an idea for a fun mash-up that I honestly cannot believe has not been done already… All in the Family meets Archie!
Sometimes an idea is funnier in my head than it ends up being on the page… or it feels too derivative of something else. You kind of have to be familiar with Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica AND also with Archie Bunker and Michael Stivic from All in the Family to really get the bit. I realize that might be a very specifically targeted audience! 🙂
The goal was to capture the essence of Archie Bunker and draw everything in the traditional Archie comic style. I think it turned out pretty well, and I’m still astonished that I could not find evidence of anyone having done this parody previously!

So… I drew this a week or so ago, while watching the Republican Debate on TV. It doesn’t fit into any of my other comics cleanly, so I just made it be its own thing. I feel like the only choices we get in politicians are either horribly bad ones that occasionally say something good OR mostly good ones who say some things that I disagree with so strongly that I can’t support them either. Hence, this cartoon…
