Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – August 29, 2020

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (August 22nd through August 28th, 2020). As usual, no drawings of president Trump were among the most popular with newspaper editors, even with the Republican convention this week. Six of the cartoons are light, life during the pandemic cartoons. Three are “back to school during the pandemic” cartoons, which remains the most popular topic with editors. Come take a look!

Congratulations to the two CagleCartoonists who have two cartoons each in the Top Ten, Dave Whamond (#1 and #8 – as he did last week) and Jeff Koterba (#3 and #8). I was happy to see Randy Enos come in with a strong #2!  Kudos to the other cartoonists who made the most reprinted list this week, Steve SackAdam Zyglis, Dave Granlund, Dave Fitzsimmons and Gary McCoy.

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 Whamond  who drew the #1 most reprinted cartoon again this week, the first of Dave’s two cartoons in the Top Ten!

#2

Randy Enos takes second place. The top two cartoons stood out as much more reprinted than the rest this week.

 

#3

Jeff Koterba takes 3rd place.

#4

Adam Zyglis takes 4th place.

 

#5

Dave Fitzsimmons takes for 5th place.

 

#6

Steve Sack ties for 6th place with a drawing of the White House that doesn’t show Trump – would fewer editors have reprinted this one if Trump was in it?

 

#6

Dave Granlund is also tied for 6th place, with the only hurricane cartoon.

#8

Jeff Koterba  is tied for 8th place with his second cartoon in the Top Ten.

 

#8

Dave Whamond is tied for 8th place with his second cartoon on our most reprinted list. Dave could just as easily chosen to put Trump in the place of the Republican elephant, and if he did, I’ll bet the cartoon wouldn’t have made the Top Ten.

#10

Gary McCoy claims the ten spot with this Biden bashing cartoon. There are very few cartoons about Biden and editors clearly want more.
