Comic: Pop Idol
Made in 2007 for Dave DeRue‘s comic zine. Not sure if it ever got published or not, but it still a fun comic to pass around 😉
At the time, my roommates were addicted to that show American Idol. I noticed the really got off when people who weren’t that great were torn appart and embarrassed. I didn’t really care for this myself, but I was made to watch a few episodes due to sharing living space with them.
That and quick blips of other things on TV (US was warring at the time so…) is what inspired this satirical piece. You’ll seriously see some absurd things when you give up watching broadcasted TV and watch it objectively.
