'Muhammad' does -- and does not -- appear in today's 'NON SEQUITUR' comic
by Michael Cavna
Depending on what newspaper you take, you may or may not see today's "Non Sequitur" comic that's captioned, in part, "...Where's Muhammad?"
Some newspapers chose instead to run a Sunday replacement strip featuring the recurring character Obvious-Man. So what was the editorial thinking behind the choice?
"I have absolutely no information on why any of the editors chose not to run it," "Non Sequitur" creator Wiley Miller tells Comic Riffs. "All I can do is surmise that the irony of their being afraid to run a cartoon that satirizes media's knee-jerk reaction to anything involving Islam bounced right of their foreheads. So what they've actually accomplished is, sadly, [to] validate the point."
