Crazy Debt Ceiling: TOP TEN Cartoons of the Week

We did our first podcast, or CagleCast, yesterday – about our TOP TEN cartoons of the week.  It is the same cartoons that you see below, but with lots of inside info on the cartoons and cartoonists.  We’re just getting started, so you can only see it here.  We’ll be on the podcast platforms soon and we hope you’ll subscribe.

Most people probably can’t explain what the debt ceiling is, but it’s been in the news this week thanks to Republicans threatening economic calamity if their government spending demands aren’t met.

Another popular cartoon topic has been the troves of classified documents that keep popping up everywhere. Trump’s home. Biden’s garage. Pence’s home. At this point it’s likely I’ve draw a cartoon or two on the back of some top secret document that ended up on my drawing table.

Here are our top ten most reprinted cartoons of the week:

#1. (TIE) Jeff Koterba

#1. (TIE) Dave Whamond

#3. Gary McCoy

 

#4. Jeff Koterba

 

#5. Jeff Koterba

 

#6. R.J. Matson

 

#7. Guy Parsons

 

#8. Daryl Cagle

 

#9. Rivers

 

#10. Rick McKee

Southwest Struggles: Top Ten Cartoons of the Week

We calculate our Top Ten weekly cartoons from Wednesday to Wednesday, so we missed most of the battle for the Speaker of the House – we’ll have to see if editors are interested in that next week; there were certainly a lot of cartoons about it!

The new year was fresh on the minds of cartoonists last Wednesday to Wednesday, but editors also jumped on cartoons about Southwest’s lingering issues, which led to thousands of flight cancelations and lots of angry travelers.

Editors also liked Dave Whamond’s cartoon about Netflix, and how the streaming giant lost a bit of its luster over the past year.

Here are our top ten most reprinted cartoons of the week:

#1. Chris Weyant

 

#2. Bob Englehart

 

#3. Dave Whamond

 

#4. Dave Granlund

 

#5. Jeff Koterba

 

#6. Gary McCoy

 

#7. John Cole

Top Ten Cartoons of the Year!

Happy New Year! Here are our Top Ten most reprinted cartoons of the year. All of these cartoons were reprinted in over 200 newspapers, and they give us an insight into what editors want most as they continue to shy away from cartoons that depict partisan politics that readers might disagree with –there is nothing to disagree with here; no donkeys and elephants, no congress, no Supreme Court, nothing on Russia’s war on Ukraine, nothing about international issues at all.

Also, it is noteworthy that some cartoonists excel in giving editors what they want: Congratulations to Chris Weyant who has the #1 and #2 cartoon; Dave Granlund has three cartoons on the list; Jeff Koterba has two and our anonymous cartoonist, Rivers, also has two on the list. This is interesting because these cartoonists also draw many hard hitting cartoons that take strong positions that readers could disagree with.  For most cartoonists, who want to bludgeon readers with their strong opinions, the editors’ choices are frustrating – that said, these are all great cartoons.

#1. Chris Weyant

#2. Chris Weyant

 

#3. Jeff Koterba

 

#4. Dave Granlund

 

#5. Rivers

 

#6. Dave Granlund

 

#7. Rivers

 

#8. Dave Granlund

 

#9. Dave Whamond

 

#10. Jeff Koterba

Christmas Crunch – Top Ten of the Week

It’s the most wonderful time of year, until you check out the price of gifts for Christmas.

Inflation might be slowing down, but prices are still high and a number of our most popular cartoons this week touched on the expensive costs of gifts this holiday season.

Another popular subject was former President Donald Trump suggesting we rip up the Constitution and redo the 2020 election. I’d go into the reasons he cited, but they’re just as fictional as Santa himself.

Here are our top ten most reprinted cartoons of the week:

#1. Gary McCoy, Cagle.com

 

#2. Rivers, Cagle.com

 

#3. Gary McCoy, Cagle.com

 

#4. Dave Whamond, Cagle.com

Twitter Trouble: Top Ten Cartoons of the Week

There’s been a lot of talk about people being disengaged from politics this election cycle, and this week’s most popular cartoons seems to back that up.

Despite midterm elections that saw Republicans struggle and Donald Trump put himself back into the spotlight, editors seemed more interested in Elon Musk and the chaos he’s created at Twitter. Between the issues at Twitter and layoffs at Amazon, it wasn’t the best week for some of the world’s top tech giants.

I also enjoyed Dave Whamond’s cartoon about a changing of the guard at Starbucks, from pumpkin spike lattes to eggnog lattes, which is probably a lot more relevant to people than how large the Republican majority will be in the House.

Here are our top ten most reprinted cartoons of the week:

#1. Monte Wolverton, Cagle.com

 

#2. Dave Granlund, Cagle.com

 

#3. John Darkow, Columbia Missourian

 

#4. Jeff Koterba, Cagle.com

 

#5. Dave Granlund, Cagle.com

 

#6. John Darkow, Columbia Missourian

 

#7. Randall Enos, Cagle.com

 

#8. Adam Zyglis, Buffalo News

 

#9. Dave Whamond, Cagle.com

 

#10. Dick Wright, Cagle.com
