My Favorite Cartoonist/Journalist!

I’d like to introduce everyone to my brilliant cartoonist/journalist daughter, Susie Cagle. Unlike the cartoons everyone is used to seeing on Cagle.com, Susie’s work is non-fiction; she does original reporting in cartoons. Cartoon journalism is still pretty rare, but it is very effective, especially for making dry topics more interesting and adding some feeling and humanity to stories where text falls flat. And as photojournalism has been made more difficult in our current strange circumstances, cartoon journalism works even when access is difficult. I’d love to see publishers embrace more reporting through cartoons.

Susie freelances from her home in Oakland, California for many major publishers. Here are links to more reporting gems that Susie did for The Nation, WNYC in New York, The Guardian newspaper and another one for The Nation. She’s busy while she’s sheltering in place and I’m delighted to write that she’s expecting a baby boy in November, who will be my first grandchild.

Susie is hoping to earn support from fans on her Patreon page! I encourage everyone to take a look, to see what’s new from Susie and support cartoon journalism! Look below for three excellent, pandemic cartoon interviews that Susie did recently for The Guardian newspaper and visit Susie’s Patreon page to see more.

Support Susie and see more of her work.

Cartoon reporting was done by a cartoonist, reporter in Mexico named Rius. He was wonderful & when I lived there, I read all his “comic” books. This was in the late 60’s early 70’s. He was finally exiled by the Mexican government who, I believe, was afraid of him & his wonderful cartoon reporting.

Hello Daryl AND Susie:

To co-opt a word from journalist friends overseas (UK, OZ, NZ and elsewhere)… Brilliant! 

While I’ve seen some Cartoon Journalism ‘pieces’ over the years, especially in situations or  circumstances, (war, trials, etc), don’t allow ‘open’ cameras, video or cellphones,‎ none of it was of the quality this snippet of Susie’s is.

I’m going to look for more of her work, but for now I can say you must be a very proud Dad, and soon to be Grand Dad  especially with Father’s Day around the corner.

Fantastic work!
