I am so excited!
 
Brilliant!

"Right this very second, here in the US, we are having an actual, serious, if incredibly stupid, conversation about whether or not women should have easy access to birth control. We are having this conversation because significant humans in our government believe women should not have access to it at all. I'm super excited about that, because it means it's 1965 and we're gonna go to the moon soon."

Yeah, it's not just the drawings, the story is pretty Katchoresque, too. Beautiful! Sacher mentions that Katchor is one of his favorite artists of all time, here: http://meathaus.com/2011/04/15/how-typography-works/ .
