CSotD: Book Nook

A small nook — only three books — but you wouldn’t like a large nook and I’m not sure there’s any such a thing anyway.   But first, the weather, and Speed Bump captures the moment, because we seem to have a boatload of monarchs here all of a sudden, and while most of them […]

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! The always interesting and educational Yesterday’s Papers site, whether it’s a John Adcock or a Richard Marschall post, is a must read every morning.

CSotD: Happy Joe Shuster Day!

Joe Shuster was born on this day in 1914, and while he probably didn’t sit up in the Toronto hospital to read the newspaper that day, his father may have had a chance to do so in those pacing and chain-smoking days.. Couldn’t find any Toronto papers on-line, and there weren’t a whole lot of […]

CSotD: To the cartoonists who appear here

I have a number of links where I find cartoons and I tend to link back to those places, my intention being to help my readers find cartoonists to follow and to build traffic for those cartoonists.

CSotD: D-Day Plus One

  Peter Brookes holds up the mirror with a cartoon so simple that I almost passed it by as obvious. But sometimes “obvious” is  the best message, the clearest possible image, and Trump makes it obvious himself, and not only by adopting the “America First” slogan that our bund leaders and isolationists used when they […]

It’s Complicated

  He was so good at imagining overly complicated and outlandish contraptions that his name became part of the English dictionary in the early 20th century to describe anything with an unnecessarily elaborate design. “That’s a real Heath-Robinson!” That’s right.

CSotD: Winners Circle

DD Degg has the full roundup of Reubens winners here, but I thought I’d provide a taste of times they’ve appeared in Comic Strip of the Day.       Maria Scrivan actually won for greeting cards, but her line and sense of color give her panel, Half Full, a greeting card feel, and I […]
