"Meet Socialist Turtle! He's a 400 year old small four-legged reptile and hardcore Stalinist!"

Here's a link to the page on Upton's Universe where you can find mini-comics about a favourite comic character during my university days: Socialist Turtle by Vancouver cartoonist Colin Upton.

(I have a copy of his re-introduction in the January 1990 Discorder magazine which I am thinking of tacking by my desk at work, thus further befuddling my co-workers.)

Artist Upton recalls that the strip was "Mysteriously popular with kids." But Socialist Turtle is such a cuddly-looking agitator!
