Top 10 Rejected Cartoon Ideas of the Month: May

Time for another installment of “What you’re missing because newspapers are sissies.”

6. This one was actually really close to running in both the Journal Star and the Reader (so close that a finished inked version exists), but it fell victim to last-minute ideas and concern that maybe the swine flu story would go away faster than initially thought.

    Ahh… Rejected cartoons are great. I can’t believe how much they censor you.

    1, 3, 6, 7, and 10 should have been run. Especially 10.

    I personally loved the Transformer as the director of the DMV.
