Homeland Security

Here's a strip from June of 2007 from New Adventures of Queen Victoria by Pab Sungenis. It's a strip that uses actual photos as its primary medium.  While it occasionally gets into modern political commentary, it's more often absurdest humor, almost in the vein of Monty Python animations, with Queen Victoria being the main focus of humor.  This particular episode focuses on current events, namely the work of the newly created U.S. Department of Homeland Security to apprehend terrorist suspects.  The "Secretary" in question in this strip would be Michael Chertoff.   Other cartoonists have made the Google Earth-terrorism connection

David Malki's Wondermark uses a similar medium, though it tends to use Victorian illustrations and drawings rather than photographs and, unlike N.A.o.Q.V., it almost never uses modern images.
