No, it's not supposed to be funny. I didn't feel like inking a funny strip right now, and I had to express my utter distaste for the actions of the Iranian officials somehow. This was the one coherent statement I could manage that, I believe, fully explains my reaction to the July 19 hanging of Mahmoud Asgari, 16, and Ayaz Marhoni, 18, for 'homosexual acts'.
As this is also an attempt to attract attention to this issue, I don't mind (for once) if you repost the actual strip on your own LJ or elsewhere. If you do, please also link to http://direland.typepad.com/direland/2005/07/iran_executes_2.html and http://www.365gay.com/newscon05/07/072505Iran.htm. I'd also recommend linking to darkillusion's posts, listed below. (Also, I'd like to keep track of the strip, so comment if you repost, please.)
(If you prefer the strip without the final three lines, you can use this one: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v507/andreaskn/harvey/harvey--monstrous3.gif)
Also, sorry about the sudden hiatus. Am back now. The unexpected break was caused by RL issues, not lack of strip ideas. I have at least twenty strips outlined and others roughly sketched. Expect plot to happen, and new characters to appear.
But now, read those articles, please.
