Hard Times In Monster Town

This dark cartoon is one of my favorites old illustrations.  October 2009 (the height of the great recession) was a scary time.  People all over the country were losing their jobs in mass and so many people I knew personally were facing uncertain times.  Once prosperous middle-class families seemed to be descending into poverty.

Since Halloween was on the horizon I imagined that even the occupants of monster town had not escape this harsh reality.
