After that remix of some old Yipster Times cartoons went so well, I thought it might be fun to find some more BFYP candidates among my old cartoons from around the turn of the century. This one has always remained a personal favorite, and is also special because it promoted the first event I ever worked on with long-time comrade and BBF Adam Eidinger of DCMJ and Prop 71 fame — the “Not A Victory Parade” protesting the US/NATO bombing campaign in Yugoslavia in the spring of 1999.

Here’s the art in action, printed as a placard and carried in the march. You can see it right there behind and to the left of that boring-ass IAC/ANSWER placard.
Found among piles of old prints in the studio, one of the original 4×5 leaflets for the demo. The backside, of course, contained event info.
NOW IT CAN BE TOLD: He gets his superpowers from the glasses. A savage young Eidinger speaks at the Dupont Circle rally before the “Not A Victory Parade”.
The march leaving Dupont Circle after the rally, heading downtown.
“Try and impeach MY ass, willya?” One of my favorite placards from the march that day. This was inspired by the Elvis postage stamp released a few years before.
