20th Anniversary of 9/11

With the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 approaching this Saturday, the cartoonists have been drawing on the subject. This one is by RJ Matson.

Twenty years ago I was the president of the National Cartoonists Society (NCS) and I had put together my first convention for the group at the World Trade Center Marriott. I made multiple trips there to organize the event, which was the biggest ever for the NCS. My wife and kids got to know the World Trade Center, and many of the staffers there. Here’s the convention theme art by Jack Davis.

We were honoring Charles M. Schulz with a lifetime achievement award (that Snoopy is flying off with) marking the 50th anniversary of Peanuts. Shortly before the convention, Schulz passed away, turning the convention into a memorial event, and we did a tribute on the newspapers comics pages, with almost all of the cartoonists drawing Schulz/Peanuts comic strip tributes on the day of our Reuben Awards at the convention. Schulz’s now-defunct syndicate, United Features Syndicate, sponsored a lovely, big, boozy Sunday Brunch, celebrating Peanuts and Schulz, for over 630 of us at Windows on the World, the restaurant near the top of the North Tower that had a sweeping view.

I’m still haunted by the memory of all the people I worked with on the Sunday brunch, who didn’t make it out of the towers alive. Most of the people at the Marriott got out in time, before the hotel was crushed. To see all of this happen so soon after my convention in 2000 is still troubling for me and for my family who loved the World Trade Center.  Read all about about my World Trade Center NCS convention experience here.

I have posted some of my recent 9/11 anniversary favorites below.

This one is by John Darkow.

Top Twelve Cartoons of the Week – August 21st, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the week ending  August 21st, 2021. For the second week in a row our cartoons performance graph is remarkably flat, with lots of cartoons performing well and no cartoons dominating the choices of editors.

Kudos to both Kevin Siers and Jeff Koterba who tied for the #1 cartoons and for having two cartoons each in the Top Ten; and congrats to Dave Granlund for having three cartoons in the Top Twelve, as well as for being the most reprinted cartoonist of the week.

With a flat graph and more cartoons performing at close to the same number of reprints, we get a lot more ties – this week I posted a Top Twelve (instead of a Top Ten) since we had a four-way tie for 9th place.  The relatively flat graph is a healthy trend and I like seeing more cartoons performing relatively well. Congratulations to all!

Cartoon FRAUD!

This comes to us from CagleCartoonist Bob Englehart. There’s a scam going around targeting cartoonists!

A person (In my case she was “Juliet Simon”) will contact you, the cartoonist, and offer you a freelance assignment. The fee they’ll pay is about three times the usual; they want all rights. They’ll tell you the project is in two phases.

Then, they’ll send you a check for twice what you thought. They’ll pay you in advance. After you cash the check, they’ll tell you Phase Two has been cancelled and you have to return half of the fee. That’s the sting. There’s no project.

I got a check from a heating and air conditioning company in California, so I went online to get their information and the owner of the company said he’s gotten about 10 calls from cartoonists. He explained his checking account was hacked and the check is no good. I had drawn four cartoons when the smell of a rat was too strong, so I did my investigative reporting, talked to my banker and called the company in California.

The cartoons I drew are included here so help yourself if you want to use them. I got the inquiry through the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists, so that gave it legitimacy. The old adage still stands: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Trust your instincts. I should’ve investigated before I started drawing, but at least I’m not out of any money. So, my fellow cartoonists, enjoy the cartoons and beware!

Pandemic of the Unvaccinated

Here’s my new COVID cartoon. The idea is that either side can win, depending on whose turn is next.

Also notice that for vaccine to win will take two moves, but COVID could win in one move … and there is still the possibility of a tie.

The potent new Delta Variant has created a tragedy in Red States where it combined with anti-vaxxers, COVID deniers, conspiracy theorists and nutty Republicans who see vaccine defiance as patriotism.

Here are some of my “Pandemic of the Unvaccinated,” Republican Anti-Vaxxer favorites from CagleCartoonists Pat Bagley of the Salt Lake Tribune and John Darkow of the Columbia Missourian.
