Artist/writer Richard Pace has put together this humorous (for some anyway) cartoon strip making fun of the now infamous rant by Frank Miller on the Occupy Wall St protests..

Whether you agree with this or not you have to admit Pace has done a great job emulating Miller's style. There have been numerous responses to both Miller's comments and the subsequent decision to crack down on the protesters in the online/celeb community. We ourselves had our own little barny on the subject the other day, so I post this not to kick all of that off again (although it probably will anyway), I just thought it was pretty cool!

Can't we all just get along.....

Oh please. Frank Miller is aloud to have his opinion. Look at all the updates on this 'Occupy' movement: crime, rape, disease, camping on private property, etc. They should focus of voting against the current politicians like Obama that give banks and such money with no strings attached. They have no respect for tax payer dollars that are used to clean up after them, police them, and the fact that they are occupying public places meant for recreation and community.

@MarvelWeiner Cuz the batman- stuff is from Year One, the comic that Frank Wrote. From an occupy perspective, you can draw the conclution that Batman would agree with the 99 % i guess.

Holy F*ck Gaston! That had me rolling!

Haha this was awesome!

If these people want to protest anything they should start with the current administration.

The taxpayers aren't the enemy. The companies that produce goods and services to employ people aren't the enemy... it's the politicians and and the liberal idiots who fall for this class warfare bullsh*t slight of hand that convinces them to be angry at the wrong people are the enemy... of the dumbest kind.
Bodwulf - 11/16/2011, 1:56 PM
Not funny, just a hateful rant wanting him to die for having an opinion that the writer disagrees with. I like how it ends mocking Frank's work . Rich coming from someone in the same business I never heard of .
AmishGangster - 11/16/2011, 1:56 PM
Why is it that the lefties tell everyone how tolerant they are, but they don't like other peoples opinions. We need a comic strip that shows the assults, disease and anti Jewish rants. I won't hold my breath.
Greengo - 11/16/2011, 2:00 PM
Batman is the 1%
Bodwulf - 11/16/2011, 2:02 PM
Googled Richard Pace on a whim. His art is light years ahead of Frank's I'll give him that.
BoschFawstin - 11/16/2011, 2:02 PM
This one's for Frank http://bit.ly/slltC4

Amish, I won't hold my breath either, right wingers aren't the most artistic lot;)
AlibiBreakfast - 11/16/2011, 2:03 PM
Imagine my surprise that @JackBauer made another painfully ignorant comment! Right-wingers hate any organization dedicated to black empowerment. ACORN is defunct and is only brought up to serve as a dog-whistle signal to the bigots who make up the base of the Republican Party.

Tevii - 11/16/2011, 2:05 PM
Great piece... good for Richard Pace practicing his 1st amendment right. But I still have to go with Frank Miller when he used his. Almost no one in these "protests" know why they are there. Its losers trying to find a scapegoat.
cologne - 11/16/2011, 2:11 PM
frank miller should stick to writing good comics again, something he hasn't done since his last sin city mini.
Avenger53 - 11/16/2011, 2:13 PM
Mark Millar was right... it's not the differing opinions that's the problem... it's the mob mentality of destroying those who share a different viewpoint than you... The "Rules For Radicals" approach that has been integrated into our political culture, if you will... This is the 18th article in 2 days that I've read regarding a rebuttal to Frank Miller's comments... It's almost like the hardcore, left-leaning/OWS supporters can't get over his political view point. I'd suggest they would be better off to just let it go. It's his opinion, don't crucify him for it.
nuclearpriest - 11/16/2011, 2:13 PM
I just read on yahoo.com that an 84 year old woman got doused with pepper spray at Occupy Seattle. I wonder which one she was, a lout, a thief or a rapist?
RorMachine - 11/16/2011, 2:15 PM
She was all three..but a MARTIAN lout.thief/rapist. They are the worst kind, cos you can't tell it's them.

Bruce Wayne is a Republican. Read my editorial...

As for these protester, I admire their tenacity, but they don't have a valid cause. Ironically ,the corporations they seem to be protesting are the very same that make their cell phones, ipads, e-books, canned goods, toilet paper, clothes, toothpaste, shoes, hair brushes, tents, sleeping bags, magic markers, eye glasses, tooth fillings, web sites, the world wide web, etc.
So in other words, their hypocrites.
The baby-boomers had a legit cause, these people do not.
Greengo - 11/16/2011, 2:25 PM
Why are lefties always whining -_-
RorMachine - 11/16/2011, 2:34 PM
People full stop are always whining. Time for a cull I say.
headlopper - 11/16/2011, 2:35 PM
@nuclearpriest- If it's on Yahoo 'News', it must be true.

marantaz - 11/16/2011, 2:35 PM
Well, I had my hopes up that you, Ror, would have found something worthy of my time, but again, I'm disappointed. Humorous? Cool? Not really. Ludicrous and typically leftists? Unfortunately, yes.

Typical in that it offers the silly notion that Batman/Bruce Wayne is one of the so-called 99% and therefore FMs work on Batman in the past somehow makes him a hypocrite (the left's ultimate sin). Ludicrous, because the artist, like the OWS whiners, lives in a fantasy land where Batman/BW is somehow able to maintain his conglomerate of weapons contracting etc. etc. etc. with equal pay for all, unionized employees and not one job sent overseas... because he's Batman. And FM is a douche for saying anything that conflicts with their fantasy.
The reality is that if BW was real, he'd have 60% of his industries overseas, where children are paid 10 cents a day to make 200 pairs of boots, or he'd be broke, out of business and out of power, and hanging from the balcony by his bat rope.
Sad really. I swear, I don't advocate boycotts, but I do make my own choices; I'll try to ignore Ror's posts from here on, but this crap is going to send me back to SHH pretty soon.
RorMachine - 11/16/2011, 2:36 PM
Rokker, I didn't actually create the comic strip..I posted it on a site that features that kind of thing. Because it's politically slanted we shouldn't? Ehh, no!
McGribble - 11/16/2011, 2:38 PM
I'M with JackBauer. I understand the frustration but these problems stem from government. I think it would be a good idea to watch this video. This guy is not trying to lessen the rage these people show, he is just trying to tell them it is misguided and should instead be pointed at our government... Thus occupying Washington...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZr9c1zYaOE

give it a look...
headlopper - 11/16/2011, 2:48 PM
@McGribble- Exactly. Which begs the question: Is this a veritable grass roots protest ,or prodded by some faction with an agenda.

The baby-boomer's knew the government was the appropriate target for their angst...not corporations which make EVERYTHING we need on a daily basis our whole lives.

Can they be that stupid not to know that(there are MANY college students) , or is someone/something in government instigating the protests.

Suspicious in the least.
MediaMan - 11/16/2011, 2:52 PM
Yawn. Another comics industry liberal, completely out of touch with America- oh, I'm sorry - the "99%." People who want nothing to do with OWS and their ridiculous, anti-capitalist demonstration, complete with rape, etc.

“If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain.” -Sir Winston Churchill
cole33 - 11/16/2011, 2:53 PM
That was awesome......

@ Rulk "The taxpayers aren't the enemy." - Who said they were?

"The companies that produce goods and services to employ people aren't the enemy... "

Just a heads up, companies that are producing goods and services, aren't doing it so they can employ people, they're doing it to make money, and in fact aren't fans of having to employ people to do so, .....which is why they employ people in places like china.


@McGribble " I understand the frustration but these problems stem from government"

Yes, they stem from a Government which is bought and paid for by corporations, and investment banks who buy congressmen like shares of a company. So yes it stems from government, and if you look at the people in Government, go find out how many of them are former heads of giant investment banks and heads of big corporations.

The problem in reality is that Wall Street & Big Corps are so intertwined INTO our government that it can manipulate how the government works to their benefit.

Money speaks louder than votes.

cole33 - 11/16/2011, 3:00 PM
Holy moses people, what's so freaking hard to understand, that if you've got a lot of money, you can buy favor with a politician?

It's not about corps making things, it's not about anti capitalism. It's about the government sucking the c_ck of corporations and wall street so they can receive funding for their campaigns, and wall street and corps give money to people they want to be seated in congress so they can *get them to vote in favor of legislation that benefits their business.

It's like your coworker getting his sister to eff your boss for a higher raise than everybody else in the office.
headlopper - 11/16/2011, 3:11 PM
@cole33- Really good point.

But again, keep in mind these people aren't protesting the Federal government( like they should be-!, as you've stated to be the source of the problem) for positive change, but corporations???

Again, very suspicious.
headlopper - 11/16/2011, 3:18 PM
@Bodwulf - Read the rest of the quote dude!

[frick] Frank Miller and [frick] you heartless conservatives too.
headlopper - 11/16/2011, 3:38 PM
Things that Conservatives hate:
1) Puppies
2)Grandmothers
3) Tadpoles
4) Toast
5) Cartoons
6) People
7) Pop-Tarts
8) Green onions
9) Chef Ramsey
10) Corn dogs
11) Zippers
12) Raindrops
13) Turds
14) Rancid turnips
15) Dirty dishes
16) Kinks in the garden hose
17) Friends
18) Enemies
19) Lists of what they hate

Oh, and MOST. OF. ALL!

Stupid generalizations that libelously stereo-type Conservatism.
ElBubba - 11/16/2011, 3:50 PM
So let me get this all straight...

Conservatives/Republicans - OWS = Bad, Tea Party = Good
Liberals/Democrats - Tea Party = Bad, OWS = Good
Conservatives/Republicans - "You can't get married if you're gay." "You can't have an abortion because you're killing a baby."
Liberals/Democrats - "McDonald's needs to get rid of Ronald McDonald because he advertises to kids." "You can't say what you're feeling because it may offend someone."

Are either group truely for liberty, or just for what they think is best for everyone else?

Damn hypocrites, the lot of them.
