Sunday morning toons

John Cagle has the round-up, which appears this week to be running more top-heavy with Fred Thompson and lethal Chinese-made toys, rather than Larry Craig. Go figure. (Although anyone who still hasn't gotten their Craig ya-yas doesn't have to do without entirely this week.)

p3 Picks of the Week: Mike Lane, Pat Bagley, R. J. Matson, John Trevor, and Steve Sack.

Opus has a Sondheim/Bernstein moment with his Anxiety Closet. And we add one more notch in the presidential headboard of incompetence (yes, it's a tortured metaphor--just read the cartoon).

p3 Bonus Toon: Jesse Springer reflects on the unique Oregon law that brings dignity to a dark place:

Finally, a little treat: The original of issue #1 (June 1938) Action Comics sold for $192, 120.15 (. . . and fifteen cents??). Alert p3 readers who saw "Superman Returns" may remember that the comic book cover image was recreated for the scene with Parker Posey and her Mustang with sabotaged brakes.
