My Big Powerful Boys

Most people know Winsor McCay for his amazing comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland (an obvious influence on Sendak's In the Night Kitchen) or McCay's early animated films, but he was also an accomplished political cartoonist.

A century after this was first published, I can't help but wonder what McCay would draw today. Some nearsighted investment banker, perhaps, with a real estate agent, a mortgage broker, and a house flipper, down on their knees (having dropped the reigns of the American economy). And looking to Uncle Sam for a hand out.
