Joe Heller’s butterfly project story and photos posted

Awhile ago, I posted a notice that Green Bay Press-Gazette editorial cartoonist Joe Heller was one of 41 artists to create artwork that would be displayed through out the city streets and then auctioned off to raise money for the Einstein Project.  Joe’s work is now on display in the lobby of the Brown County Library at 515 Pine Street.

TDC Updates: Eisners and Tigers and Lee – Oh Si

Zoe Si Recognized (pronounced “see” despite the cute headline) Zoe has become the toast of Vancouver after being named a Pulitzer Prize finalist earlier this month. The Vancouver Sun did a small article about the local girl made good. Two years into a new career, Zoe Si’s wry observations about life during the pandemic, beautifully […]

David Willson’s 30 Years as Shiny Sheet Editoonist

That was then, this is now: above is David Willson’s first editorial cartoon for The Palm Beach Daily News; below is one of his more recent cartoons. David Willson Special to the Daily News It’s hard for me to believe, but this week represented my 30th anniversary as the editorial cartoonist for the Palm Beach […]

CSotD: Maybe It’s Me …

My initial response to Clay Bennett (CTFP)’s cartoon is not “maybe it’s me” but “yeah, it’s definitely me.” I was thinking that because you can declare an Ace to be 1, he still had a straight flush, J-Q-K-1-2. I’m less embarrassed by thinking a flush could — how you say? — go around the corner, […]

Best Cartoons of 2021 – Ted Rall Edition

Ted Rall pulls no punches. He’s a patented political pugilist, landing haymaker after haymaker, week after week. Rall’s cartoons may not float like a butterfly, but they certainly sting like a bee. Here are some of our favorites from 2021. WhoWhatWhy presents a gallery of their favorite Ted Rall cartoons. cartoon © Ted Rall

CSotD Christmas Special: Hooray for Wally Wood!

Wally Wood was a giant in the comics business, as explained at length, with an abundance of examples, in this Lambeik Comiclopedia profile, better than which I cannot begin to do. And much of which I dare not reproduce here, though I’ll confess that, like nearly everyone I knew in Boulder, and since my mother […]

CSotD: Darkness at the edge of day

There is an annular solar eclipse happening as I write this, but while Samson’s Dark Side of the Horse (AMS) is aptly named this morning, by the time most Americans see the strip, the reminder will be too late. I thought about pausing to take a look, but we’ve got partly cloudy and I’d have […]

CSotD: Comic Relief

I’ll admit to spending a fair amount of time going through my memories, which is okay because I’ve got a fair amount of them, both significant and very, very trivial. This Bizarro (KFS) sparked one of the latter. My freshman year phys ed instructor in college was one of those profs who sets himself as […]

CSotD: Speaking out against the madness

Michael Ramirez offers a challenging commentary on the toppling of statues, and, normally, I wouldn’t feature a cartoon with specific, glaring errors, but this one is worth addressing. The Buddhas were not historic but religious statues, while the destruction of Nimrud was also based on religious differences: Extremist Islamists wanting to wipe out not just […]

CSotD: Alone in a Crowd

I’m tempted to simply post Dave Brown‘s cartoon and walk away. Dear Leader’s childish speculation about UV light and disinfectants drew a lot of cartoons, many of them very funny, but, as absurd as his rambling word salad was, there wasn’t anything humorous about it, or about the way he continues to be enabled, not […]

CSotD: Monday Mix

As my colleague DD Degg noted recently, Stephan Pastis has been getting more philosophical at Pearls Before Swine lately, with his tribute to his dog getting a great deal of attention. This shift means that the strip doesn’t always produce the belly laughs it did when it was new, but it probably wouldn’t anyway. We’re […]

Comic Strip of the Day: … and when will he know it?

L’il Donnie starts us off with a laugh, but the problem, O Best Beloved, is that, no, he really doesn’t get it. Which isn’t funny. The Watergate comparisons are flying, mostly from people who were not around or at least who were not old enough 40-some years ago to follow that scandal in real time. […]
