Andrews McMeel and GoComics celebrates with a Lincoln Peirce interview. What’s been your favorite story arc or gag in 30 […]

CSotD: Jigsaw Puzzle

I like Jeff Boyer (Albany TU)‘s take on today’s inauguration: Joe Biden’s got one hell of a task ahead. And he’s only got about a year to accomplish it, because, by then, the build-up to the midterm elections will be starting and, if every single piece isn’t precisely in place, he’ll lose any chance of […]

“Love! Heartbreak! Applause! Self Pity!”

American cartoonist Jules Feiffer is considered the most widely read satirist in the country. In 1986, he won the Pulitzer Prize as a leading editorial cartoonist and one of his most widely read and popular series was the weekly satirical comic strip, “Feiffer” which ran in the Village Voice from 1956 to 1997. Feiffer’s cartoons […]

Editoonist Pia Guerra Has Other Concerns

After a Jan. 29, 2017, image of Trump seated in Steve Bannon’s lap signing legislation while declaring “I’m a big boy” went viral, Guerra became a regular contributor to Portland-based political cartoon website, magazine and graphic novel publishing house theNib.com. Comic book artist-cum-editorial cartoonist Pia Guerra isn’t fretting about a lack of subjects with Donald […]

Social Media & Censorship, Liabilities & Protections

image © Dario Castillejos From Daryl Cagle: I run a newspaper syndicate for editorial cartoons and columns. Half of America’s daily, paid-circulation newspapers subscribe to my service, which features about 75 political cartoonists and ten columnists. Sometimes I choose to “kill” a cartoon or column that I think is inappropriate, which often leads to an […]

The Trump Revue

There has never been a dull moment for editorial cartoonists during the Trump Presidency. Now as the end nears some are reviewing The Follies of 45.

Comic Strip Rarity: Willy Muffit

Fame came to cartoonist Bill Brewer early, winning a national contest for college cartoonists judged by Groucho Marx, Steve Allen, and Al Capp. Bill then began a career as a commercial cartoonist but, like all cartoonists sixty years ago, the dream was to match fame with fortune as a syndicated comic strip creator. His 1961 […]

CSotD: Last laughs

Pearls Before Swine (AMS) sets the mood for today’s risky choice, which is to have a few laughs while we wait for Joe and Kamala to take the wheel. It’s a risk because there’s nothing new to be said about Trump’s endgame and I don’t want to wallow in it this morning, but if political […]

CSotD: On the Eve

I suppose it would be hopelessly partisan to quote Jerry Ford and say that our long national nightmare is over, but Alan Moir (Sydney Morning Herald) cracked me up with this suggestion of the changes coming at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and the crybaby in the window wasn’t necessary but sure was a nice touch.   […]

Inside Sunday Funnies

Being “a bear of very little brain” I didn’t catch what Macanudo was about today. So I dug up the title panel not shown on the Comics Kingdom site which gave me the hint I needed. © Liniers   I needed no hint to get the latest Flash Forward, instantly recognizing the source that gave […]

CSotD: Critical Thinking

Steve Sack (Star Tribune) offers a rueful chuckle in the wake of the Capitol riots and Twitter’s banning of Donald Trump. It’s not the first time Dear Leader has failed to appropriately acknowledge tragedy, having cheerfully tossed paper towels to people devastated by a hurricane. His genuine inability to process other people’s emotions is part […]

David Horsey: Drinking from a Fire Hose

Seattle Times interviews their editorial cartoonist David Horsey about the past four years of politics in the United States and new book “Drawing Apart: Political Cartoons from a Polarized America.” I think the biggest problem is that if you’re talking about Donald Trump, my job is to sort of exaggerate reality and create satire that […]

CSotD is a humor site! CSotD is a political site!

Stop! You’re both right! CSotD is two – two – two sites in one! And, at this fraught moment, there are enough humorous political cartoons that we can do a whole posting of nothing but.   We’ll start things off with a bit of pure stand-up schtick from Drew Sheneman (AMS), who draws for the […]
