CSotD: Bits and Pieces

Daniel Boris offers a Juxtaposition of Himself: Two versions of a single cartoon. I prefer the first iteration, specifically because the convictions don’t necessarily lead back to Trump. That is, Rhodes and Meggs would have been convicted of seditious conspiracy (and the others of interference) without any need to prove they were incited by Trump […]

CSotD: Not with a bang

I was thinking of using the headline “WGASA Forever,” but several of today’s cartoons are about things we really should care about. Not this one, but I gather a lot of people in Britain besides Christian Adams are steamed by the fact that The Prince Formerly Known As The Prince and his wife have made a […]

CSotD: Another think coming

Tom Tomorrow reflects on the fleeting relevance of political cartoons, and he’s right that the more specific a critique, the sooner it becomes irrelevant, or, at least, we should hope it does. I bought Herblock: The Life and Work of the Great Political Cartoonist, which includes a DVD of all his cartoons, and, while he […]

CSotD: Quick takes (I hope)

So this greeted me at Twitter this morning, and refreshing, or coming back later, didn’t help, but logging out and signing back in restored things, whatever that portends. Mostly, it was a clue as to where to start, which is with this Juxtaposition of the Day (Graeme Keyes) (Jeremy Banx) Two takes on roughly the […]

Clearing the Queue – Tales From Hither and Thither

The Evolving Art of Ruffling Feathers © Steve Nease Most newspapers had a full-time cartoonist on staff. Now, the juice just isn’t worth the squeeze. Steve Nease, one of Canada’s premier cartoonists, isn’t surprised. A lot of papers no longer run, not just his, but any cartoons. “Sometimes, it’s a cost-cutting matter,” he admits. Cartoonists aren’t […]

CSotD: No responsibility at all

Ann Telnaes packs a lot into this commentary on Trump’s dinner with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes, mostly by saying little. That is, while others have gone over the top with exaggerations in condemning the event, her only distortion is putting Fuentes — an outright and unabashed white supremacist — in a KKK hood. Well, […]

Allie & Beckom On GoComics Under Eric & Mike?

Three months ago we reported that Eric Allie and Mike Beckom had joined the Counterpoint Syndicate. Since that time I would occasionally scroll down the GoComics A to Z lineup before clicking to go to “My Comics” planning on adding Eric and Mike to the “Comics I Follow” when I saw their names. GoComics sorts […]

CSotD: Saturday Morning Cartoons

I was going to let DD Degg cover the Charles Schulz tributes today, but this Arctic Circle (KFS) deserves some separate commentary. Alex Hallatt has been doing “Grown-Up Peanuts” gags all week, but today’s strikes at her usual health/environmental themes, and pinged my receptors for a couple of reasons. We’re long seen research indicating that […]

CSotD: Alternative Truths and Legends

Man Overboard offered a familiar but important observation on Thanksgiving, which is, as widely known and often said, that history is written by the victors. It’s true, at least in terms of popular history, which is largely what matters, since popular history is how a nation establishes its identity. There’s probably no better example of […]

Kinda OT: Twitter and Good Ol’ Elon Musk

Unlike partner Mike Peterson and apparently the majority of people on Planet Earth I have never signed up for a Twitter account. (I thought I had and even have a password listed in my Book of Getting onto the Interwebs, but am not allowed into that world wide public square.) So as an outsider I […]

CSotD: My World Cup Runneth Under

Colombian cartoonist Raul Fernando Zuleta (Cartoon Movement) leads off today’s discussion of the 2022 World Cup: Qatar dangles money before FIFA and the TV networks, who in turn dangle money before the soccer clubs and TV viewers give the results to viewers, who don’t get so much as a taste of all that lovely baksheesh […]

From The Minot Daily News: Minot native Cord Scott’s latest book is titled “The Mud and the Mirth: Marine Cartoonists in World War I.” Scott, a professor with the University of Maryland Global Campus based in Okinawa, Japan, said the book “discusses the use of cartoons drawn by Marines in the early part of the […]

CSotD: A Chance to Catch Up

Now only is GoComics still off-line (DD Degg offers some ways to find the missing comics), but Comics Kingdom has inadvertently offered its solidarity by hanging up and delivering yesterday’s comics, except for the Vintage strips, which are decades old but as up to date as they’re supposed to be. Fortunately, I’ve been holding a […]
