The Facts In The Case Of Dr. Andrew Wakefield

A fifteen page story about the MMR vaccination controversy. As ever, I'm sure a few spelling errors have slipped past me. Feel free to point any out so I can correct them.

The reference links for the strip are in the next blog entry.

Now! Let's have a heated debate!

2013 update. Since I wrote this blog entry, this cartoon strip as well as many others on such subjects as homeopathy, chiropratic, evolution, and the supposed NASA Moon hoax landings, have been published in a book: Science Tales in the UK (Myriad Edtions) and How To Fake A Moon Landing in the US and Canada (Abrams). Here's the link to my main blog.

I'm uncomfortable with the pinup photo you chose for Jenny McCarthy. That panel sends the message to me that you are trying to undermine her points by perpetuating her objectification by society, and that it's okay to dismiss a woman's arguments just because she's a woman. There are many other ways to point out the flaws in her stance which don't hurt women as a whole. If you're just trying to remind your audience of who she is, a less provocative image of her face (see Wikipedia's page on her for example) is sufficient. If you're trying to make the message that she's unreliable because of her history as a model, well that's just an ad hominem attack that has no place in the rational argument you are trying to make with the rest of your comic.

Didn't even see this before I wrote my comment, I was so annoyed with that picture.

Especially as you can find various pics of Carrey in states of undress, and he chose not to use those.

I think you're right. I never really gave it that much thought, but now I feel uncomfortable with the image. Too late to fix it for the next edition of the book, as I've just gone through an edit for the second edition of Science Tales (known as How To Fake A Moon Landing in North America). The version of the strip seen here is the original raw version. The published version is slightly different. I'll add it to the list of things I have to change.

Heh, I just realized the original date on this post - someone on FB had linked it today. Thanks so much for considering our suggestions here. :) I'd be interested to see what you choose in the end.
