Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 15 of the new serialized graphic novel The Hummer -- The Final Chapter

This marks the last chapter in the graphic novel "The Hummer."

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer #15 - FinalThis marks the last chapter in the graphic novel "The Hummer." I hope you've had as much fun reading it as I've had creating it. As it turns out it's also the 199th comic I've made for Salem-News.com. I started four years ago this coming August.

The first one hundred comics were under the title of "Nota Bene" and the premise was that the comics represented events in parallel universes. They were thinly disguised satires of America under the Bush Administration.

Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 14 of the new serialized graphic novel The Hummer

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer #14We all have things we'd rather not talk about. Every adult at one time or another has made a choice that he or she isn't proud of.

We push that part of us into a dark hole and pack as much earth over it as we can. It's not exactly a secret, but it's not something we care to dwell on either. Once it gets started it loops in our head until we nearly lose our mind. Normally it's controllable.

Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 13 of the new serialized graphic novel The Hummer

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer #13Try to make somebody happy, and they're never satisfied. Somebody is always looking for the thing you didn't do, and they don't see the things you did do.

I mean you don't expect to get a cookie every time you make your bed, but for pity sake don't criticize a guy if he happens to leave his shirt tail untucked. People start pushing too hard and that's when you start looking other places to be and other things to do.

Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 10 of the new serialized graphic novel The Hummer

More than a few of us end our lives sitting behind the wheel of a car...

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer #10We are automotive turtles. In our cars we are self-contained.

There's hardly a human function that can't be performed in an automobile--in the back seat if not the front. We can eat, sleep, argue, gossip, listen to books, even give birth to our children.

Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 9 of the New Serialized Graphic Novel The Hummer

When the day is done you pull your keys from your pocket, walk out to your car, unlock the door and slip into your sanctuary.

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer #9You find a note left by your boss. He wants to see you about something. Your boss doesn't ever talk to you unless he's got a problem.

You wanna say, "Now what, you lazy #$@^%#@?" But you need the job. You only half-listen to his beef. Somebody always has something to complain about.

Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 8 of the New Serialized Graphic Novel The Hummer

Do automobiles hold the male gender bond together?

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer #8Some boys grow up to be bankers or realtors or college professors. Others become construction workers or ranch hands or maybe they just pump gas to earn their keep.

Some will never carry their lunch in a paper bag while others will never knot a tie around their necks. What holds the gender together?

Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 7 of the New Serialized Graphic Novel The Hummer

Make sure you park close to the building 'cause that's points extra and take cuts in line. It's the American way.

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer #7It's all about attitude. It's all about style. What's in your head and the quality of your heart is for sissies.

When you're on the road only one thing matters and that's who's in the lead.

Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 6 of the new serialized graphic novel The Hummer

The manly ritual desire for an automobile is a relatively modern phenomenon, yet it is etched as deeply into our DNA as if our distant ancestors had crawled onto dry land for the first time with a set of car keys clutched in their fins.

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer #6The rituals and values of American men are as bizarre as any aboriginal. We practice them, but we turn a blind eye to their irrational qualities.

We don't give them a second thought as we perpetuate them to each succeeding generation.

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer #4Ever find your eyes wandering over the pages of the new car advertisements? Does your mind estimate your car's life expectancy whenever you fill the tank and check the odometer?

Does the sound and feel of a new car door closing tight and pretty send shivers of auto-lust up your spine? Do not feel shame.

The latest edition of Salem's only weekly online cartoon strip.

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer #3The purpose of an automobile is to get the rider from point A to point b safely and without incident. But that's never been true. Cars have been about style and class and social display since the earliest days of the horseless carriage.

Why else would people spend so much of their income on vehicles built more for heavy construction than for carrying a bag of groceries home from the store or conveying the family down to McDonalds to don the evening feed bag?

Here's a secret I'd like to share: Cheap goods are just as out of reach if you don't have a job.

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer Episode #2 By Glen BledsoeBuy American! I think we'd all like to do that. We'd all like to be able to do that. But what can you buy that's made in America?

What manufacturing industry hasn't been free to move overseas to avoid the cost of labor, the cost of paying workers what it takes to raise a family? These same industries are now puzzled as to why they have no customers.

Benny & Sid Presents The First Chapter of the New Serialized Graphic Novel The Hummer

There is one hero who understands our place on this planet. He's called The Hummer!

(Your City, USA) -The Hummer #1Those who once were hawks are now a bunch of lily white doves. Those who were born to show the world how to make a profit talk about things like charities, civil rights and worst of all saving the earth.

Nobody needs to save the earth. It ain't natural. God put man on this planet to eat a cheeseburger, pump a little oil and--most of all--to make a buck. So what if he steps on a couple of tulips? What do we think we are? A bunch of gardeners?

Futoko has no regrets about the decisions he has made. Do you?

(Your City, USA) -The Truant Officer #22The players said their lines & moved into final positions. The house lights are down. Amber and rose lights illuminate the stage, but the audience still perceives the scene only in jarring slashes of black and white.

Futoko has spoken, but he has also listened. Futoko has taught, but he has also learned.

Benny & Sid presents Chapter 21 of the serialized graphic novel The Truant Officer featuring the Mysterious Futoko

(Your City, USA) -The Truant Officer #21The battlefields are the schools, and the children are the ones who are to be liberated--not liberated from teachers or from the system of education itself, but from the laziness of ignorance, the slothfulness of expecting someone else to teach them what they should be frantic to learn on their own.

Students need to be freed from behaving in such a way as to require the force-feeding of education like some comatose car accident victim brain-dead and on life support with lessons pumped into their stomachs six and a half hours per day, five days per week.

Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 20 of the Serialized Graphic Novel The Truant Officer Featuring the Mysterious Futoko

Futoko does not bother with political correctness. Futoko does not soothe. Futoko only pursues truth. Who is the enemy?

(Your City, USA) -The Truant Officer #20Who is the enemy? Is the enemy the one who questions what you believe? Or is the enemy the one who showers you with false praise while waiting for you to falter so that he may slip a blade between your ribs?

Futoko may be many things but he never praises when he perceives a flaw. He never coats his words with a candy shell so those who do not wish to hear the truth have an excuse to swallow their pill of ignorance.

Salem's only original weekly cartoon strip!

(Your City USA) -The Truant Officer #19I don't blame teachers for their classrooms of non-learning. They do the best they can given the circumstances. If students were hungry to learn the teacher's task would be simple.

However with America's entitled attitude teachers must beg students to study, reward them with candy when they haven't caused too much trouble during recess, cajole parents into turning off the tv so that students can spend 15 minutes learning their math facts and practicing their spelling.

Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 18 of the Serialized Graphic Novel The Truant Officer Featuring the Mysterious Futoko

Salem's only original online comic!

(Your City, USA) -The Truant Officer #18What makes us who we are is often not pretty. It is the forge and the hammer which beat us into shape. Everyone has scars from experiences which color their character decades after the incident. Who can forget the cruelty of being bullied, the injustice of becoming the random target of irrational aggression?

When the victim becomes angry and violent himself we mourn the ruination of a potential citizen of merit. When the victim vows to disassemble the system which encourages the bullies we must celebrate him as a hero.

Benny & Sid presents Chapter 17 of the serialized graphic novel The Truant Officer featuring the Mysterious Futoko

Why should we leave criticism of public education to those who despise it and the children whom it serves?

(Your City, USA) -The Truant Officer #17Do not misunderstand the meaning of "school non-attendance." It does not refer to truancy because of laziness or intellectual inability.

We are not delinquents nor are we vandals. The followers of Futoko love learning, believe that learning is the most important human activity.

Why is everyone so afraid of Futoko?

(Your City USA) -The Truant Officer #16Futoko is not a gentleman burglar. He is not a Robin Hood nor a Raffles. Futoko owns nothing worth giving anyone, nor is of value himself.

Futoko tells no one what to do nor where to go. Futoko cannot be found in Walmart nor can your doctor prescribe him to remedy your problems.

Benny & Sid presents Chapter 15 of the serialized graphic novel The Truant Officer featuring the Mysterious Futoko

Does it require Futoko's understanding of how everyone must be his own teacher and that learning is as essential as food, clothing and shelter?

(Your City, USA) -The Truant Officer #15No matter what the cause, battles are lost or won according to the skills of the leaders of opposing forces. The winner is lauded and the loser vilified.

But what kind of creatures are we that we cannot act in such a way independent of a charismatic leader who must invoke our better selves to produce the desired effect?
