Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – August 8, 2020

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (August 1st through August 8th, 2020). For the first time since March, a drawing of Trump has made the Top Ten in John Darkow’s #8 cartoon showing Trump as a dog biting a postman. Trump’s attacks on the Post Office are a very popular topic right now (but usually without showing Trump). Seven of the Top Ten reference the pandemic, two are about the Post Office, and one is about Joe Biden. Come take a look!

Seven of the Top Ten cartoons reference the pandemic, two are about the Post Office, and one is about Joe Biden.

Jeff Koterba dominates the week with three cartoons in the Top Ten, taking the #1, #4 and #6 spots! Steve Sack has an impressive showing with #2 and #3.

Kudos to our other five cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this week: RJ Matson, Dave Whamond, John Darkow, Rick McKee and Kevin Siers!

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com.


Our reader supported site, Cagle.com, still needs you!  Journalism is threatened with the pandemic that has shuttered newspaper advertisers. Some pundits predict that a large percentage of newspapers won’t survive the pandemic economic slump, and as newspapers sink, so do editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers, and along with them, our Cagle.com site, that our small, sinking syndicate largely supports, along with our fans.

The world needs political cartoonists more now than ever. Please consider supporting Cagle.com and visit Cagle.com/heroes.  We need you! Don’t let the cartoons die!
