Title: The advanced society
: Daily News of Los Angeles
Date: Dec. 8, 1982
About this cartoon: Two new advances in medicine: the Jarvik-7 artificial heart was successfully introduced, and a new form of execution, lethal injection, was approved for use on Death Rows.
Noteworthy: I've always liked my artwork on this... and yes, the drawing is reversed compared to the caption (lethal injection, on the left, goes with "taketh away" while the heart on the right goes with "giveth") so that the heart is on the correct side of the body (this assumes the silhouetted figure is facing us) while not mangling the usual order of "giveth and taketh away" any more than I already have.
