    This one’s lost on me.

      Going by name + appearance, I’m guessing Nick is Nick Kouvalis and Warren is… some other hired gun politico on the/an opposing side? (scratches head)

        Warren Kinsella. He’s helping with Olivia Chow’s campaign. i believe he plays bass in a local punk band that appears every now and then at The Bovine. Hence the “your band sucks” remark from Kouvalis who is behind Tory’s campaign.

      Kinsella ran Tory’s last (losing) run for mayor and is now on Team Chow. Kouvalis ran Ford’s last campaign and is now running Tory’s. Both have reputations as political attack dogs and are now facing off against each other. Both seem somewhat mismatched with their candidates. It’s no big thing … JUST THE MOST INTERESTING COMPETITION OF THE ELECTION.

        Maybe you should have labelled them “Nick Kouvalis” and “Warren Kinsella”? There’s an implication in your comic that they are best buddies who hang out and engage in puerile, passive-aggressive banter. What is that based on?
