For the third year running, we asked cartoonists — and would-be cartoonists — to send us comics depicting life in Colorado. We received dozens of responses; not surprisingly, many focused on cannabis (pot put the high in the smile high city, after all) — but there were also an unusual number of cartoons that focused a wry eye on Denver history.
