CSotD: Friday Funnies plus detective work

King Features wasn’t able to locate today’s “King of the Royal Mounted,” but a quick archival search brought it up at the Press-Democrat of Santa Rosa, not to be confused with Santa Rosita where detective work involves looking for buried treasure under a big W. So here it is and it turns out to be […]

CSotD: Graphic Stenography

There’s enough going on that the best way to start off is to have Tom Tomorrow bring us up to date on everything. Think of it as the five-minute NPR news break at the top of the hour before we get into Morning Edition or All Things Considered and start digging down on the details. […]

CSotD: Strips get up to date

I’m getting burned out on editorial cartoons, mostly because they aren’t saying much that’s new or important anymore. JD Crowe has the right to publicize the nitwits of spring break because it took pleas from several sources to get his governor to shut down Alabama’s beaches and get rid of spring break crowds. Parenthetically, I’d […]

CSotD: Morbid-19

We’ll start the day with Steve Sack‘s commentary on working at home, because he acknowledges the challenge without going overboard. With about half my career having been freelance, I’ve worked at home both with kids under foot and after they were long gone, and I do recognize the fact that my deadlines have been far […]

CSotD: Alone (and yet alive)

J.D. Crowe extends the invitation and we should all accept it and gather together, separately. I’m good with that. I’ve worked at home for the past decade and I don’t miss going into the office. But even JD Salinger used to come into town once in awhile to check his mail and have a cup of […]

CSotD: The New Normal

Peter Brookes joins the ranks of cartoonists who are posting what you might call “stiff upper lip” cartoons, which are intended less to critique and comment as they are to encourage. Which, by the way, is permitted. These are quite different than the celebratory “We won the World Series!” pieces that follow local triumphs, and, […]

CSotD: Sanity retention

Nick Anderson captures the moment, and I would add that not only has Facebook (and Twitter, for that matter) become a seething cauldron of coronavirus stupidity but seems to be ramping up the political idiocy as well. And while I chuckle, too, at all the cartoonists saying they’ve practiced social isolation all their lives, part […]

CSotD: Good timing, bad timing, you know we’ve had our share

Ben Jennings scores. This is one of those pieces where the only real response is, “Good for you,” because there are plenty of paintings that depict crowds but this is the right one.   Here’s the original, not that you haven’t seen it but I wanted a second look to see how crowded the scene […]

CSotD: Sunday Morning and we’re all coming down

Kal Kallaugher gets away with the tired iceberg metaphor for two reasons: One is his art, through which he can draw just about anything and make it fun and fresh, and the other is his ability as a storyteller. A couple of years ago, the featured speaker at the final banquet of the AAEC convention […]

CSotD: Home-Thoughts, from Home

I’m going to try to be mostly critical in a literary rather than a social sense today, starting with Steve Breen’s simple expression of the situation. I had our next issue planned with a review of “My Spy,” but the reviewer dropped me an email to say she’d gone to the screening, but the release […]

CSotD: Even Kansas isn’t in Kansas anymore

Greg Kearney, cartooning for the Atchison (Kansas) Globe, offers a bit of nostalgia and regret for the days when world events happened “out there.” A whole lot has changed, much of it in the past half century but much of that has been a sudden acceleration of a developing trend. One of the things I […]
