This is the cartoon that started it all. I made this as an illustration for an article on global warming that appeared in the magazine I edit Reformed Perspective
. The author of the article, Dr. James Wanliss, had written a book about environmentalism, Resisting the Green Dragon
, that was going to be featured on the Glenn Beck TV show. He wanted my cartoon so he could post it, along with his article, on his own website
, in anticipation of some traffic there from Glenn Beck viewers.
I gave him the comic, but first put a label on it - www.ReallyGoodComics.com - with the thought that if he got a pile of hits, maybe some of them would want to see the site he got his comic from. It was a bit of a long shot, admittedly, but I always wanted to do a comic blog anyway, so it seemed a good reason to start. In the end I think I got no traffic from the six degrees of separation connection to the Glenn Beck show.
But I did end up with a comic blog!
