What me, worry? Yes. To copy is not to flatter

I do not usually read the cartoon "Land of This Guy." However, the cartoon in the Sept.14 edition of the Xpress caught my eye for its familiar cartoon style.

The strip’s entire graphical style, down to the extended pinkies and single-tooth hobo are almost exact replicas of the [work of] former MAD and Cracked magazines' cartoonist Don Martin.

While imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, wholesale stylistic borrowing deserves at least an acknowledgment of the style's originator.
