    Here are this last week's Forex comics.  Typically there would be only one Forex comic.  They're usually like Highlanders (the immortal humanoids, not the cars) in that they fight for dominance until only one remains.  Also, all my Forex comics have Christopher Lambert's gravelly voice.  But in this case I misread the instructions and so a second version had to be done.
    This comic is based on the news that, in terms of size, Apple has just surpassed Microsoft.  In the first comic, I depicted Tim Cook (Apple's current CEO) planting the flag above the Microsoft-colored flag.  It was the inclusion of Tim Cook that ended up being incorrect.  Subsequently, the second version featuring the phone planting the flag came to fruition.  And so ends the saga of the two comics.
    I'm trying to come up with something insightful to say about either of these illustrations, but both were pretty straightforward and so I'm having a hard time.  Also it's Sunday night and the creativity that typically fuels my Algonquin Round Table-like wit is not being so good with the stuff and things.  I think the drawings in both of these comics are adequate, which is to say that they're functional without being something to write home to Mom about.  The caricature of Tim Cook (its superfluousness notwithstanding) is not my best, though it's possible someone might be able to recognize the drawing as Cook by making the link with the flag.  He looks a bit young in this drawing.  At any rate, I'll try to do better with the comic this coming week.
