Breaking Bad Outside the US by Christopher Keelty

I finally got around to watching Breaking Bad (I know, late to the party) and like most people I’ve been taking it in four-to-six-episode doses.

One thing that really interests me about the show is how it juxtaposes two of America’s most catastrophic policy failures: The for-profit health care industry and the failed War on Drugs, which has created a black market that makes the manufacture and sale of illegal drugs incredibly profitable.

I got to thinking how uniquely American the show is, and that led to this comic strip.
