CSotD: Random critical observations

Dog Eats Doug (Creators) has a sweet story arc just starting on weekdays. Since the death of the original Sophie who inspired the cartoon version (but was much older), I understand Brian Anderson has been fostering adoptable dogs, and, even if he hasn’t, the family in the strip has. “Fostering” means giving a dog a […]

Cartoonist Plantu Leaves Le Monde after 50 Years

The celebrated cartoonist of France’s Le Monde daily Plantu said Friday that he would soon leave the paper after half a century of work that has seen him mock the elite in his country and elsewhere with bitingly acerbic drawings. The departure on March 31 of Plantu — who has championed cartoons as a bastion […]

CSotD: The Week Ends With Bernies

The Oatmeal has it right: Enough already with the Bernie memes. Timing is everything and you had your chance and if you haven’t placed Bernie somewhere and posted it on social media, it’s too late now.   We’re fixated now on the horror of Joe Biden owning an expensive watch and a Peloton exercise system, […]

Perspectives – Cartoonist Chronicles210121

© EC Comics Hundreds of years before The Impossible Trident there was … William Hogarth’s Satire on False Perspective, engraved by Luke Sullivan, offers an Escher-like array of impossible lines and vanishing points: a man lights his pipe from a distant candle; a flock of sheep grow bigger as they recede round a corner; a […]

Cartoonist Quits After Newspaper Apologizes

PARIS (AFP) — A leading French cartoonist on Wednesday said he would no longer work for Le Monde after the newspaper apologized for a cartoon he drew that tackled a sex-abuse scandal. France’s intellectual elite was rocked this month by a claim that political commentator Olivier Duhamel sexually abused his stepson, prompting social media users […]

CSotD: Just like starting over

Mike Thompson (USAT) provides a good starting point. The past four years have indeed been a time when a lot of us have begun each morning with “What’s he done now?” Which would simply be pessimism if our news feeds hadn’t so often produced an answer that, too many times, reinforced that “crushing sense of […]

CSotD: Jigsaw Puzzle

I like Jeff Boyer (Albany TU)‘s take on today’s inauguration: Joe Biden’s got one hell of a task ahead. And he’s only got about a year to accomplish it, because, by then, the build-up to the midterm elections will be starting and, if every single piece isn’t precisely in place, he’ll lose any chance of […]

Editoonist Pia Guerra Has Other Concerns

After a Jan. 29, 2017, image of Trump seated in Steve Bannon’s lap signing legislation while declaring “I’m a big boy” went viral, Guerra became a regular contributor to Portland-based political cartoon website, magazine and graphic novel publishing house theNib.com. Comic book artist-cum-editorial cartoonist Pia Guerra isn’t fretting about a lack of subjects with Donald […]

Social Media & Censorship, Liabilities & Protections

image © Dario Castillejos From Daryl Cagle: I run a newspaper syndicate for editorial cartoons and columns. Half of America’s daily, paid-circulation newspapers subscribe to my service, which features about 75 political cartoonists and ten columnists. Sometimes I choose to “kill” a cartoon or column that I think is inappropriate, which often leads to an […]

CSotD: On the Eve

I suppose it would be hopelessly partisan to quote Jerry Ford and say that our long national nightmare is over, but Alan Moir (Sydney Morning Herald) cracked me up with this suggestion of the changes coming at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and the crybaby in the window wasn’t necessary but sure was a nice touch.   […]

David Horsey: Drinking from a Fire Hose

Seattle Times interviews their editorial cartoonist David Horsey about the past four years of politics in the United States and new book “Drawing Apart: Political Cartoons from a Polarized America.” I think the biggest problem is that if you’re talking about Donald Trump, my job is to sort of exaggerate reality and create satire that […]

CSotD is a humor site! CSotD is a political site!

Stop! You’re both right! CSotD is two – two – two sites in one! And, at this fraught moment, there are enough humorous political cartoons that we can do a whole posting of nothing but.   We’ll start things off with a bit of pure stand-up schtick from Drew Sheneman (AMS), who draws for the […]
