Definitely in the running for 2011's worst gag of the year (second only to this one). Convoluted confession: this particular panel's a great example of why, for me, letting gags incubate in a sketchbook beforehand is, in lieu of an actual editor, probably a better process than doodling directly out in ink. Below is the initial idea, punning on the Jim Bowie character, which turned out to be mixed-up with Davey Crockett anyways. Don't ask - chalk it up to yet another personal Alamo. So after completely messing up the trail of mental breadcrumbs, a quick cut & paste coupled with judicious editing finally got me to where I wanted to be: inspired by the iconic cover from David Bowie's 1973 album. Still probably too much of an obscure glam-rock reference (or, as a member of my ad hoc review board diplomatically put it: "Nobody
over under thirty will get it").
