Last month, we told you about the wave of hobo cartoons inspired by John Hodgman’s The Areas of My Expertise. Just before the holiday, Jawbone Radio posted a disturbing update: some of the pictures are getting bounced from the canon, including Adam Koford’s “Black Bolt of the Inhumans” (left). Koford has set up an alternative 700 Hoboes group on Flickr as a workaround, but the whole affair does seem to raise interesting questions (which I freely admit I’m not qualified to touch) about Flickr’s relationship to illustrations vs. photographs.
