All About the Benjamin

A little backstory to enjoy my strip: Ben Franklin's eldest son, William, was a British loyalist who was exiled to England after the Revolutionary War. He never reconciled with his famous (founding) father.


Everything else is me being silly.

  8. Boys, boys, there's a reason why we didn't learn about the War of 1812. What, might you ask? Because we got our asses kicked!
    Which means, Joe has a point.

  17. This is clearly the best Drawbridge thread ever. Kudos to George's Ben Franklin-by-way-of-Frank Miller strip for applying the appropriate dash of cultural insensitivity.
