A Twisted Image cartoon from 1986


This is a comic strip I did back in 1986 about John calling up Yoko from heaven. On a whim i sent a copy to Yoko at the Dakota, and got a nice postcard back from Yoko thanking me for the cartoon (the postcard was one of John’s doodles of the three faces, John, Yoko and Sean) . . Though for all I know the postcard was actually signed by Yoko’s personal assistant.

November 11, 1968

“Number 9, number 9, number 9 . . . 

On this date in history 50 years ago — November 11, 1968 — John Lennon releases his solo album “Two Virgins.” . . . Later in the day Lennon met privately with President Nixon in the White House to personally give him a copy of his new album. And to inquire about the possibility of being deputized. as an undercover agent in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, specializing in the confiscation and testing of illegal narcotics.
