The Art of Jim Morin

For Jim Morin, all art is political. As the editorial cartoonist at the Miami Herald for 42 years, Morin created witty, often biting cartoons that are nationally and internationally syndicated, and he’s received the Pulitzer Prize in journalism for editorial cartooning twice over, once in 1996 and again in 2017. If you’ve opened a newspaper […]

CSotD: Acceptable Losses

JD Crowe cuts to the chase and sets up our second day of Uvalde reactions. On his Facebook page, he cites a 2015 tweet as the inspiration: “In retrospect Sandy Hook marked the end of the US gun control debate. Once America decided killing children was bearable, it was over.” — Dan Hodges (@DPJHodges on […]

Clay Jones On His RFK Award…and Uvalde

Clay Jones: What are the odds that on the same day I receive a journalism award from a human rights organization, the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights organization, for a cartoon on school shootings that’s there’s another school shooting? In this country where politicians refuse to do anything to stop mass shootings and end the […]

CSotD: Where in God’s name is our backbone?

As often as I’ve complained about cartoonists sticking to their schedules despite compelling events, I have to say a good number jumped to their drawing boards last night. But I was still left with the task of looking for copyright dates, because some posted old work and why not? What has changed? What is there […]

CSotD: Canceling the Cancelors

We’ll start off with a major hit from Pedro Molina (Counterpoint), who skips all the cleverness and simply portays Replacement Theory for what it is: A perverse way in which racism masquerades as patriotism. Sometimes you can be too clever. The first time I saw a cartoon pointing out that Europeans had replaced Indians on […]

CSotD: Attention Must Be Paid

I used to see bumperstickers that said “If you’re not scared, you’re not paying attention.” Haven’t seen one in awhile; perhaps it’s too late. But Ann Telnaes has been paying attention enough to be concerned that CPAC held their latest conference in Budapest, where Hungarian autocrat Victor Orban — new hero of the far right […]

CSotD: Friday Funnies, with a side of politics

The Cosmic Timing Award goes to Wallace The Brave (AMS), where this strip dropped the morning after I got a long-delayed haircut and even got a compliment on it from a dog-walking friend. Fortunately, only our dogs ended up in the water and they did it mostly on purpose. As for how long it had […]

CSotD: Most of the People Most of the Time

There were a boatload of primaries the other day and now it’s on to November, and, as Dave Granlund says, we’ll be anxiously covering the mud slinging as part of what in media parlance is called “Horserace Coverage.” We won’t talk about policies or plans, because that’s boring. Besides, nobody cares. They just want to […]

CRT Hits The Herblock Prize (Lalo Alzcaraz Won)

The Caucasian Replacement Theory is making its way into American Awards*. Like many prestigious awards that recognize great accomplishment in this country, the Herblock Prize for editorial cartooning, created in 2004 to commemorate the legacy of the late Washington Post cartoonist Herb Block, had never been offered to a nonwhite person—until this year. While accepting […]

CSotD: Paralysed Force, Gesture Without Motion

It was a bit of a coin flip, deciding whether to start the day with Jen Sorensen or T.S. Eliot, and they don’t really qualify as a Juxtaposition because they’re nearly the same. Sorensen wins because this is a cartoon feature and not a poetry corner, but we’ll add the rest of Tom’s commentary at […]

CSotD: We are who we thought we were

  There aren’t a lot of good cartoons about the Buffalo shootings, and I’m not sure it’s worth waiting, because what can anyone say that hasn’t been said? Yesterday, so many cartoonists reposted work from years past on social media that I had trouble sorting reactions to these murders from reactions to all those other […]
