Yeah, I hate AIG, too. 2

"Now I'm confused. Is that a black hole, or the maws of AIG?" ┬ęD. Barstow 2009

AIG, the worst insurance company of the year, and they have some tough competition. And there’s a dog in it for you, too.

This was for Slate, and I did it right before the big news broke about AIG asking for even more money, for those f-ing bonuses. On the day I did this, it was just “normal” money they requested.

I thought AIG was an insurance company, but some cartoonists were doing it as a bank…I think it’s an insurance company FOR banks. But this whole idea that the world’s economy will collapse if AIG dies is a bunch of baloney. Too big to fail? I don’t believe it for a minute, and I’m sure I’ll do another cartoon on that idea. And when did insurance companies get such a stranglehold on America, anyway?

Anyone can make comments on GoComics, where you can see this same cartoon, (Sorry, no links now. Uclick threw away 2 years of my cartoons on Slate, Gocomics and Yahoo News when they kicked me out of Gocomics.) with comments, as well as archived cartoons. And you can check out Slate to see all my editorial cartoons as I finish them.

    Great cartoon! I agree that everything looks grounded even with all the white space. AIG could sure use some grounding, too!

    Thanks, Ann Marie! I guess the design maxim of Alignment (align all elements for good design-in this case, lining up the dog, chair, feet) helped do me right here, but thanks for giving me another artist’s take on it.
