Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

DG Comp releases a show-off comic

with one comment










Those of you who have been following this blog for a while might remember our series of posts about antitrust-related entertainment (videos, comics,  etc).

Well, a couple of hours ago Aoife White (Bloomberg) sent us the ultimate comic, one that has actually been done by DG Comp.

I was planning to write a few jokes about it even before having read it (my first idea was a fake news story, along the lines of “Belgian association of comic drawers sues DG Comp for giving away comics for free at Christmas time”) but I’ve just read the actual comic (it’s 9 pages and takes 3 minutes, no more), and I wouldn’t know where to start!

The story is about a busy, handsome (I guess, although I’m not really an expert on the beauty of drawn men) and passionate DG Comp official who wants to pick up a girl at an airport with the chat-up line “I work at DG Comp” and then starts showing off about how important his job is.

And I’m not kidding.

It’s available here: DG Competition Comic

“I work at DG Comp”, the ultimate pick-up line…

  1. Yup, it’s tacky to the extreme, but then again, we could expect something like this from the Commission, just check out the ‘Easy Reading Corner’ at:, where you could even find ‘the raspberry icecream war’ that explains to youngsters why Europe is the best invention since I don’t know what.
