Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – August 15, 2020

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (August 8th through August 15th, 2020). As usual, cartoonists drew president Trump in many cartoons, but no drawings of Trump were among the most popular with newspaper editors.

Dave Granlund is on top this week with the #1 and #6 cartoons! Dave Whamond also has an impressive showing with two cartoons in the Top Ten.

Kudos to the other six CagleCartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this week: John Darkow, Rick McKee, Ed Wexler, Randy Enos, Jeff Koterba and Chris Weyant!

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!


#1

Congratulations to Dave Granlund who drew the #1 most reprinted cartoon this week, the first of two cartoons in the Top Ten!

#2

Chris Weyant takes second place with one of the early Kamala Harris cartoons that editors were looking for.

 

#3

Jeff Koterba, who is on vacation, takes 3rd place with this cartoon that he drew and submitted in advance.

#4

Congratulations to John Darkow who snags 4th place.

 

#5

Dave Whamond claims 4th place with his first of two cartoons in the Top Ten this week.

 

#6

Congratulations yet again to Dave Granlund  for his second of two cartoons in the Top Ten. This was the first, new Kamala Harris cartoon posted after see selection as Biden’s VP nominee, something that editors were eager to see.

 

#6

Kudos to Ed Wexler who is tied for #6 with his first “couple watching TV” cartoon. I warned Ed that “couples watching TV” cartoons are addictive and may consume him (as happened to me).

#8

I’m happy to see my buddy Randy Enos on the Top Ten this week!

 

#9

Dave Whamond takes the #9 spot with his second cartoon in the Top Ten.

#10

Rick McKee and Vladimir Putin take the ten spot!

Can,t help noticing how your cartoons diminish Biden,s importance by featuring Kamala as the bigger draw. Not one image that portrays him as an experienced legislator, foreign relations expert, assistant president, decent hardworking American, nonslinging insults or+&* spreading lies. Someone who deserves a chance to rescue us from all that is Trump wreckage.

Your cartoonists have done a good job of capturing Trumpism in most cases. Please give Biden a fair chance to show his stepping forward to help us escape those disasttrous, lying policies and actions. He has none of Trmp,s baggage, deserves a break until proven otherwise. Counting on you.
