John Darling - Take 9

Given that John Darling was easily the most topical of the three strips I created, I can see that I’ll have to be putting a lot of things into context as we roll along. In this case, the throw-away panels on top refer to political liberal Shana Alexander and  conservative James Kirkpatrick who used to duel and the end of Sixty Minutes back in the seventies. The bottom part with John, the media personality, selling his soul to the devil is pretty much timeless.
