CSotD: Long time coming and a long time gone

There is a wealth of political cartoon commentary at the moment, and I could do a roundup of everything said on any one of several topics, but I’m going to do more of a roundup of everything, starting with Matt Wuerker‘s summary of the departure of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, that “slightly chunky soccer mom” who […]

Mr. Postman, Look and See, Is There a Letter…

  Hats off to cartoonist This is just a quick opinion from a regular reader that the cartoon by Joe Heller in this week’s Herald-Independent about Bart Starr entering heaven is the best cartoon I have seen anywhere in a decade. Maybe two decades. Huzza Heller.     Cartoon of Mother Goose poem sad example […]

CSotD: In a snarky mood

“Just the place for a Snark!” the Bellman cried,    As he landed his crew with care; Supporting each man on the top of the tide    By a finger entwined in his hair. “Just the place for a Snark! I have said it twice:    That alone should encourage the crew. Just the place for a Snark! […]

Cartoonists React to New York Times Cartoon Ban

  As expected political cartoonists are registering their disgust with the New York Times’ response to a New York Times International editor picking a cartoon that produced some blowback. Above Clay Jones draws his reaction, but also uses his column to explain the good editorial cartoons do for newspapers and society.     Below Joep […]

CSotD: Grey Lady Down

DD Degg having reported the facts of the case, we’ll open the discussion with a Homer Davenport graphic commentary. I couldn’t find information on the “anti-cartoon bill” Senator Platt (foreground) was pushing, but most schoolchildren know the story of Boss Tweed and how Thomas Nast took him down with a barrage of cartoons. There are […]

No More Chappatte or Ed-Op Cartoons for NYTIMES – updated

  From Patrick Chappatte: THE NEW YORK TIMES WILL END ALL POLITICAL CARTOONS I just learned, weeks after they published a syndicated Netanyahu cartoon that caused a scandal. For me, this is the end of an adventure that began 20 years ago. But the stakes are much higher.     In 20-plus years of delivering […]

CSotD: Very random thoughts

Given that it’s Sunday, we’ll start with a Sunday cartoon. Betty is something of an oddity, because Betty and her husband are Salt of the Earth types, which, in both Comics Land and TV Land, usually doesn’t involve terribly thoughtful humor. However, the strip sustains a level of humor that is reflective, despite a strongly […]

Cartoonist Andy Marlette vs. State Rep. Mike Hill

  Mike Hill is the Florida State Representative for the Pensacola area. Andy Marlette is the editorial cartoonist and columnist for the Pensacola News Journal. So, as one would suspect, they butt heads on occasion.   Their latest started with Rep. Hill, a Godly man, speaking of banning abortion because life is sacred. News Journal […]

CSotD: Weekend Watch

Radio Patrol is, granted, a Vintage strip I read for its camp qualities, but today’s final panel knocked me out of my chair because “Cheese it! The cops!” is a stock phrase like “23 Skidoo” that I can’t believe anyone actually said in real life. Though I’ll admit to having said “Far out” until it […]

How Anti-Semitic Soviet Propaganda Informs Contemporary Left Anti-Zionism in Cartoons

The April cartoon that appeared in the New York Times International Edition continues to elicit response and conversation. What makes more sense is the possibility that the cartoon made it into print because the paper’s staff—whether singular or plural—saw it as “a political issue and not religious,”… Yet the conventional wisdom on the left that […]

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 […]

CSotD: D-Day the Sixth of June

One of the keys to looking up contemporary coverage of historic moments is that you really have to look at the newspapers of the next day, though if you look at June 6, 1944, the time difference between France and even the East Coast of the United States meant that morning papers who were on […]
