You might as well laugh. That’s Erich Origen and Gan Golan’s attitude toward our doom-and-gloom economy.
Their The Adventures of Unemployed Man (Little, Brown, 80 pp., $14.99) is a comic book in which Unemployed Man (think Superman) takes on all sorts of self-interested villains who dwell in the Hall of Just Us: The Man (sinister CEO), The Human Resource (Unemployed Man’s seductress and nemesis), Nickel & Dime (an evil pair of silent killers).
Unemployed Man has a sidekick, of course. Silver-haired Plan B, who can’t get hired because of his age. Get the drift? Yes, clever.
