Cartoonists slaughtered in France. What a wacky world. I got death threats for one of my cartoons once. The editor of The Montreal Mirror apparently played the recorded messages off his speaker phone out loud to the staff until they told him to quit it. I wasn’t at the offices, I was working freelance from home. At least they called first. It was for a (p)review of a Good Friday (the 13th) screening of Karim Hussain & Mitch Davis’ sacrilegious film SUBCONSCIOUS CRUELTY wherein I depicted naked girls urinating onto a disemboweled Jesus Christ while sodomizing him with a branch. It appeared in the April 12 – April 19, 2001 issue of The Montreal Mirror. “A Trillion Hail Marys!” (Pictured below: Scan from original newsprint version.
