DavidCrewsBack in May, the Washington Post announced a contest called America’s Next Great Cartoonist.  The idea was to have cartoonists submit a comic strip and have it judged by a panel of judges from the comics industry.  The top ten comics were posted on the Washington Post website for readers to vote on and select a winner.

When I heard about the contest, I figured “what the heck” and whipped up a submission for the contest.  They asked for six black and white strips or panels.  My idea was a comic strip about some inept Mafia gangsters called Friends of Ours (if you don’t get the Mafia reference in the title… look it up!).  Needless to say, I am not going to be America’s next great cartoonist.  My comic didn’t make the top ten, but I’m posting my submission here for all to enjoy.  Just click on the thumbnail to the left to view the comic strips.
