Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – May 15, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the week ending May 15th, 2021.

Two stories dominated the news this week, The Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the vote by Republicans in Congress to strip Liz Cheney of her leadership position; there were lots of cartoons about both topics, but none were popular with newspaper editors who preferred cartoons about the pandemic and inflation.

Congratulations to Jeff Koterba who took the #1 spot and to Dick Wright who had two cartoons in the Top Ten last week!  Kudos to the other cartoonists who made the most reprinted list: Dave Whamond, Dave Granlund, Steve Sack, Kevin Siers, Gary McCoy, Dave Fitzsimmons and John Darkow. Come take a look!

Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com. These are the cartoons that editors picked last week.


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.
