Roger Ebert Would Have Given His Obit Cartoons Two Thumbs Down

Even though many cartoonists were quick to draw the non-religious Roger Ebert in heaven after his death, Matt Bors took the far more sensible route and mocked the whole idea of it:

I’m not sure that Roger Ebert, an outspoken secular humanist who didn’t believe in an afterlife, would have appreciated being depicted in heaven with Gene Siskel, no less. They were co-workers who disliked each other, not soul mates.

Finally, some honesty. Bors’ drawing is unique, unlike the other cartoons. I only wish it were longer!
