Parting Shot: ‘Big Bird No More’ By Francesco Francavilla [Art]

After the infamous Clint Eastwood vs. Chair incident at this summer’s Republican National Convention, artist Francesco Francavilla created a clever piece of art to mock commemorate the incident. Now, following Mitt Romney’s debate comments regarding his plans for defunding PBS, the home of Big Bird (and debate moderator Jim Lehrer), Francavilla has created a new piece of art, paying homage to John Romita Sr.’s famous image from Amazing Spider-Man #50 while having a bit of fun with the exchange between Romney and Lehrer, who is widely considered to have done a wonderful job as moderator and has absolutely no critics.
