E&P has a story that Detroit Free Press cartoonist Mike Thompson will be doing a series of cartoons on the topic of the Super Bowl being held in Detroit.
Thompson told E&P that doing the series “is part of my long-standing philosophy that given the current state of editorial cartooning, we cartoonists must adapt and change, or die. I’ve been going to news events for years and covering them. Everything from political conventions to state fairs to the Ryder Cup, the NBA Finals, and the NHL finals to the Detroit Auto Show. Sitting in the ivory tower and pontificating ain’t gonna cut it anymore for editorial cartoonists.”
