The comic shows kids on a playground playing tag but instead of running around and interacting, they are playing tag through their smartphones. Although it seems comical at first, the more one looks at it the more cynical it becomes. It shows how the younger generation is becoming addicted to technology at a young age and how human interaction is becoming less of a formality and more of a rarity.

 

THE DISNEY EFFECT

This shows Juvenalian satire as it produces great anger in the reader when they find out that Disney is planning to commemorate two of the worst times in US history-slavery and the Vietnam War. This satire makes allusions to these two events. This is an example of situational irony as people associate Disney with happiness, but here Disney is associated with sadness. Disney is also mocking the oppressed Vietnamese in this picture trying to further hurt them. By mocking them publicly, the Vietnamese are getting lampooned.

 

TRAYVON MARTIN CASE

This is an example of Juvenalian satire because it brings light to the problem of Trayvon Martin Case through historical evidence. Trayvon was accused for looking suspicious in his hoodie, and in this comic it shows the hypocrisy toward whites, because of their history with the KKK. This also includes irony, because Trayvon was in suspicious, and the KKK is infamous for their white over-the-face hoodies.

This image is Juvenalian Satire because it is depicting Apple, as this community which entraps their customers, always having to buy the new product. It enhances the idea that the iTunes Community is actually just a cycle where you are forced to buy the next thing because the company keeps making old phones break in a few years and keep coming up with new ones. It also shows a bigger picture of the world, and how people always want something better and never are content with what they have.
