CSotD: Come for the hate speech, stay for the laffs

Clay Jones gives the best response to the decision of Israel to follow Dear Leader’s suggestion, re-casting António Moreira’s cartoon of a Netanyahu dog leading a blind Trump, for which two cartoonists who had nothing to do with it were fired. And the editor who approved it was … well, we don’t know, because the […]

Ed Hall Cartoon Not Welcome on Facebook

Ed Hall says For the 1st time on FB I’ve had a cartoon taken down because they said it violated their “community standards” on hate speech. I suspect someone objected who didn’t understand that the cartoon is actually “anti-hate speech” describing a Muslim ban into Israel. After Israel banned two U. S. Congresswomen from their […]

CSotD Extra: Counterpoint Quickly Comes of Age

A good editorial cartoon should be provocative. Whether you lean left or right, you should be able to find something you like – and dislike – in Counterpoint. That is our strength. Cartoons get people thinking and debating. Engaged debate is the lifeblood of a well-functioning democracy. — Nick Anderson If you follow any of […]

CSotD: Too Smart For The Room

John Branch provides a welcome alternative to the flood of Emma Lazarus re-writes currently flooding the editorial cartooning pool. I’m not sure that the best cartoons are wordless, but it’s not a theory I’d argue against, either. The Emma Lazarus knock-offs are at a disadvantage anyway, because, while most people are familiar with more or […]

CSotD: Political Potpourri

There are currently a gazillion cartoons transposing new words on Emma Lazarus’s Statue of Liberty poem, but Mike Luckovich took a completely other tack and stands out, not just for doing that but for focusing the issue on the people being impacted. The Statue of Liberty is used so often that it’s hard to draw […]

A Conspiracy of Cartoonists

Mike Thompson – from early this year. Let’s play the game…   Clay Jones   Gary McCoy   Clay Bennett   A. F. Branco   Michael de Adder   There were no recordings. The guards weren’t watching. Someone wanted Epstein dead, or at least removed and disappeared. The photo of the body at the hospital […]

CSotD: Sense and Sensibility

If I’m going to use Jane Austen’s intentions in today’s headline, I might as well use a quote of hers which is a hint of her wit and perhaps personality. The specific topic came up as I was scrolling through Twitter:   Mira Jacob posted this, and my response was that I don’t like crowds […]

Nemo Magazine Return is “Imminent”

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. But this morning it gave me a real thrill. To quote Richard: Searching for illustrations for the imminent revival of Nemo Magazine, I have been ransacking my bookshelves. […]

Edmonton Journal Sorry for Anti-Semitic Cartoon

  On Aug. 1, the [Edmonton] Journal ran an editorial cartoon by veteran contributor Malcolm Mayes, which criticized the recent Capital One hack, in which the data of six million Canadians was potentially compromised, including social insurance numbers and bank account information. “It has since been pointed out that the image of the person bears […]

CSotD: Fudd’s First Law of Opposition

Joe Heller‘s cartoon suggests that Jeffrey Epstein’s death has ended what would have been a series of scandals and downfalls. However, I would point out that anyone familiar with cemetery vandalism knows otherwise and that this is a simple case of Fudd’s First Law of Opposition: “If you push something hard enough, it will fall […]

Well, if you are headed to Upstate New York sometime in the next two months you may want stop by the Ellenville Public Library and Museum for R. Robert Pollak‘s “A Cavalcade of American Newspaper Comic Strip Art” exhibit. It features Pollak’s collection […]

CSotD: State of the Disunion

  Timing is everything, and while this Kevin Siers cartoon references something happening in his hometown of Charlotte, it comes as the apartment house next door to me is on the verge of being converted to an independent living home for special needs people. Which is a worthy cause and they’ll be good neighbors, but […]

Gun Cartoons Prompt Reproach & Removal

The Palatka (Florida) Daily News ran Joe Heller‘s first cartoon following the weekend slaughter. TV in Jacksonville couldn’t believe the newspaper in Palakta would print such a cartoon “just days after – what a weekend of – violent weekend of mass shootings.” (I think that was the idea.) So they sent a reporter out on […]

CSotD: Defining White Supremacy

This is going to be a text-heavy blog, so let’s warm up first with a couple of cartoons. (Oh, it’s also going to feature more cartoons I disagree with than usual, but we can take that up next month in Columbus.)   For instance, I greatly admire the work of Jack Ohman, but here he […]
