Cultural Jetlag, by Jim Siergey
'Cultural Jetlag' (1996).

Jim Siergey is an American cartoonist. In the summer of 1971 Siergey met Jay Lynch, who taught a class on the history of U.S. comic strips at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The final project of the course was making a comic strip. This was Siergey's first attempt at making a comic and he always regarded Lynch as his mentor. Siergey started his career as a freelance cartoonist in the early 1980s. Many of his comics contributions were done in association with Jay Lynch and usually as an inker. Siergey inked on Topps' baseball cards, the back cover of 'Garbage Pail Kids' trading cards, Gary Whitney's 'Phoebe and the Pigeon People' (scripted by Lynch) and the 'Duckman' comic book (created by Everett Peck, Dark Horse, 1990). In the late 1980s Lynch, his wife Carole Sobocinski and Siergey also worked on a political satire tabloid, The Chicago Spitune. 

Besides work for many major corporations and small businesses, he created the comic strip 'Cultural Jetlag' together with Tom Roberts. This commentary on high and low culture has appeared in Time since 1997, and in numerous other publications as well as paperback collections.
