If you’re a regular reader of this blog, then you know I don’t love what we call in my industry, “obituary” cartoons. I don’t like drawing a cartoon commemorating someone’s death only because that person was famous. I would rather memorialize someone who contributed something to society, whether positive or negative.

Viktor Bout is a Russian arms dealer without the charm of Nicolas Cage who sold weapons to terrorists planning to attack the United States. He’s currently in U.S. custody serving 25 years after being convicted of conspiracy to kill U.S. citizens and officials, delivery of anti-aircraft missiles, and providing aid to a terrorist organization.
