Wonk City: Random Moments from a Random Comic Strip
In the mid-1990s I drew a weekly comic strip for the Washington Post called Wonk City. The main character was a bureaucrat in the Clinton White House named Gil Wonkmeister. The panel had an inside-the-beltway theme about the inner workings of government, which is ironic because not once during its two-year run did I set foot inside Washington DC and I have no idea how government works. After 100 or so episodes I quit because I felt like a fraud and have generally swept any memory of the endeavor under the rug.
I've been going back through WC lately and discovering to my surprise that there were actually some pretty fun and bizarre moments. Over time I intend to get them all scanned and logged into our archive, maybe even collect them in a little book. For now, enjoy these random scenes.
