Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last month, January, 2021. We usually do the Top Ten of the Week, but this week our stats were down for a couple of days as were were working on new programming. The weekly Top Ten will be back next Saturday.
January was a wild month with the pandemic, the presidential inauguration and the Capitol insurrection. New Years, Martin Luther King and GameStop also made the list.
This was an impressive month for Steve Sack, who had a strong #1 and and also scored in 6th place. Dave Granlund also kicked cartoon butt with three cartoons on the list (#2, #5 and #9). Dave Whamond (#7 and #10) and Jeff Koterba (#3 and #4) each had two cartoons on the list. Kudos to Dave Fitzsimmons who had the #8 cartoon.
The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints. Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com 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, editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers sink too, and along with them, our Cagle.com site.
The world needs political cartoonists more now than ever. Please consider supporting Cagle.com and visit Cagle.com/heroes.
