This week’s cartoon is about the whole Ed Skrein/Hellboy/White-washing kerfuffle, and how the people complaining that casting a white guy in the role the originally Japanese character “Major Ben Daimio” in the 2019 reboot of Hellboy are hypocrites for being happy about Daniel Dae Kim now getting the job, seeing as he is Korean.

As in, literally just as not-Japanese as the previous actor. So much for all the talk of the importance of cultural heritage!

So, that’s my ‘toon. Hope youse likes it! – Harry
