Coronavirus vs. Alien Invasion

Coronavirus vs. Alien Invasion

When it started we ignored it.
Then we just diminished it.
Then we handled economics.
Then turned it to politics.
Then we dealt with social aspects.
Then we published memes, hooray!
We did EVERYTHING, except
what’s NEEDED to be done, oy vey.


(Small favor: this comic was inspired by a tweet that I saw the other day about how, judging by the way the US reacted to the Coronavirus, America’s first reaction to an alien invasion would be to lower interest rates. This sparked a whole set of ideas about what humanity’s reaction to an alien invasion would be like, based on our reaction to the Coronavirus. However, I couldn’t find the original tweet. So if by chance any of you encountered it and have the link to it, please let me know in the comments so I could credit the author here. Thanks!)


My previous comic which mentioned the Coronavirus was published about a month and a half ago. Back then, COVID-19 was a distant disease that was spreading in Eastern Asia, something you read about in the news and moved on. Who would have thought that just a few weeks later, I would sit in my home with my wife and kids in “isolation” (which is just a nicer word for quarantine), defending myself from the virus? Who would have thought there’d be tens of thousands of dead in Italy and Spain? And thousands in the U.S? (and it’s just the beginning). Who would have thought that so many people would become instantly unemployed, and more people uncertain whether they’ll have a job to return to once the storm passes?


As I’ve been obsessed with the virus lately, especially with the numbers, I had to do something to get it out of my system. I decided to put my programming skills to use and created this simple web site, which contains some graphs that illustrate the current status of COVID-19 in various countries that interest me. You can find it here:
It’s somewhat buggy (as it’s been a long time since I last used JavaScript) so you may need to refresh a few times before it loads. And it looks kinda crappy on your smartphone (looks better on tablets/laptops/desktops). But I update the data almost every day. Again, it’s more about my obsession with the data than anything else, but if you find the data interesting or would like some different data on it, let me know in the comments and I just might add it.


Finally, my rate of publishing comics will naturally decrease in the next few weeks as I’m focusing on taking care of my family. But I will keep drawing, and I’m sure we’ll get through this dark period and enjoy better days. It will take time, but we’ll get there. In the meantime – stay healthy, and stay at home.


While you isolate yourself at home, check my older comics on Instagram and Twitter.



Populism - political cartoon

Politics is really hard, like steel and stone and wood.
The wiser politicians therefore know they really should
avoid talking ’bout the controversial topics, so,
they talk about the things we all agree upon, dear bro.

– “Poverty is not so good, crime is really bad.
 Life is very happy. Also, death is very sad.”
– “What about abortions? Are you pro-life or pro-choice?”
– “Sorry kid *cough cough* I think I’m losing my own voice”.

– “Why are you avoiding talking ’bout important stuff?
 Gun control, abortions, shootings?”
– “Kid, I’ve had enough!
 I work really hard to get elected so please stop!
 I lead in the polls and I’ll say shit to stay on top!”


Here’s another silly political cartoon.
And here’s an oldie about abortions.


Lots of relatable and agreeable cartoons packed with populism await you on Instagram and Twitter.

Identity Politics

Identity Politics

All our problems we will fix
with identity politics.
Power to the under-powered.
Vote, revolt, don’t be a coward!

Who we’ll vote for? Quickly, choose:
females, blacks, Latinos, Jews,
Asians, penguins, even whales!
(Anything but old white males.)

Talents? Skills? Don’t make me grin.
We shall vote by color of skin
Do the candidates have breasts?
Yes? Well, then they passed our tests.

Let me give you my one cent:
When voting for government
choose the ones who’re qualified
and which acted bona fide.

Vote by “who” and not by “what”.
Vote by brain, and yes, by gut.
Female, male, black, or white
You must make the choice that’s right.


Here’s another comic about identity politics.

Now go to bed, grown ups are talking.


Make America Grit Again - by C-Section Comics

He made America grit again,
He tweets and golfs and sips champagne,
World leaders, from Bahrain to Spain
will all fear him throughout his reign.

ISIS, China and Iran,
North Korea? Bring it on!
They’ll all meet their bitter ends!
(except Russia, they’re our friends)

Love him or Loathe him. There’s no between.
He’s either great or he is mean.
Is he a buffoon? A mastermind?
Savior? Worst of mankind?

Is he a man of silly deeds?
Or is he what the U.S needs
to be great again? Who knows?
History will tell us, bros.


And now:

Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump
Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump

Comparing Incarceration Rates

Incarceration Rates - A cartoon by C-Section Comics

Let’s check incarceration rates,
worldwide (and also in the States):
Who fills up our many jails?
You guessed it – it’s mostly males.

Why is that? Because they’re brutes?
Because of natural attributes?
Time we dare to stop and ask:
are men judicially harassed?

How d’you think we all have versed
if statistics were reversed
and WOMEN were the ones jailed more?
Feminists would go to war.

Why are blacks jailed more? Let’s face it:
It’s because the system’s racist.
Can we all claim that ergo
judges hate men more? Hell no.

We all assume that men are strong.
The patriarchy can do no wrong
to fellow men. It sounds so right.
So let’s ignore men and their plight.

Kids, meet confirmation bias:
it’s that nasty thing that ties us
to our preexisting views.
(so our brains won’t be confused).

This is why we all disdain
stats that prove men are in pain.
So send those men back to the slam
’cause people just don’t give a damn.

‘Tis a fact that our conclusions
are nothing more than brain illusions.
(Best not tell it to your buddies,
‘specailly those in social studies).
