Different Worlds – Top Ten Cartoons of the Week

The Top Ten most reprinted editorial cartoons this week again show the stark contrast between what newspaper editors want, what cartoonists want to draw and what we are seeing on the TV news.

Cartoonists want to draw cartoons about Vladimir Putin and the war in Ukraine, which is dominating the television news. Editors have little interest in cartoons about the war. In the past week, only one popular cartoon mentions the war or mentions Putin, in a combined gag about Will Smith and President Biden. It seems like editorial cartoonists and newspaper editors are living in different worlds.

Historians look back at editorial cartoons as a window on their times, reflecting the concerns of readers about the issues of the day; this no longer works, and stopped being true during the Trump administration, when cartoonists were all drawing Trump, who dominated the news while editors had little interest in running editorial cartoons depicting Trump.

Here’s a graph showing the relative number of reprints, and you can see how editors preferred Dave Granlund’s cartoon about Netflix much more than the rest.  Congratulations, Dave!

And here are the Top Ten …

#1

Dave Whamond took the #1 most reprinted spot, by a wide margin.

#2

Rick McKee took second place with his first of two in the Top Ten.

#3

Jeff Koterba took third place.

#4

John Cole nabbed 4th place.

#5

Dave Whamond claims the five-spot with his first of two cartoons in theTop Ten.

#6

Adam Zyglis came in sixth.

#7

Dave Whamond nabs seventh place with his second cartoon in the Top Ten.

#8

Rivers took 8th place.

#9

John Darkow takes 9th place.

#10

Rick McKee wraps it up at number ten with his second cartoon in the Top Ten.

Oscar Slap Flap!

The boring Academy Awards suddenly got more interesting when Will Smith “slapped” Chris Rock – something that looked more like an assault than a slap. Smith was outraged by an rude joke about his wife and has since apologized for assaulting Rock, who is is not pressing charges.  Smith went on to win the Oscar for Best Actor and gave a tearful acceptance/apology speech.

The incident also made editorial cartoons more interesting.  Here is a collection of the best Oscar Slap cartoons!

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – March 25th, 2022

We’ve made a few changes to the Top Ten of the Week. It turns out that our subscribing editors like the Top Ten and some have been using it as a weekly cartoon round-up, so I decided to make this into a column which ran for the first time last week.  It now counts the stats from Wednesday to Wednesday.  Look here and you can see what this looks like as a column.


TOP TEN CARTOONS OF THE WEEK

Editors prefer cartoons about high gas prices and inflation, but a few more cartoons about the war in Ukraine crept into our Top Ten list of the most reprinted cartoons of the week.

The most popular is actually No. 2, a rearview mirror COVID cartoon by Jeff Koterba, which straddled two weeks so it didn’t hit No. 1, but it was reprinted in over 250 newspapers – that’s a lot.

At Cagle.com, we’ve been syndicating editorial cartoons for over twenty years, and we’ve amassed an archive of over 250,000 cartoons. Every few years there’s a spike in gas prices and these are the cartoons editors want to publish, so I looked back over two decades for some oldies that might look fresh today.

I found some great high gas price cartoons by Tab, a great, retired, Canadian cartoonist who used to draw for the Calgary Sun. I sent these to newspapers looking as fresh and new as they did 17 years ago. That’s one of Tab’s gas price cartoons at No. 9, and editors liked all of Tab’s cartoons.

High gas prices never get old.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – March 13th, 2022

Yet again, editorial cartoonists were frustrating as editors preferred light cartoons to the more substantive cartoons about the War in Ukraine.

Here are the cartoons that editors chose to print – for the seven days ending  March 13th, 2022. Congratulations to Dave Whamond who again took the #1 spot this week, by a whisker over Bob Englehart’s #2 — but it wasn’t close on the overall measure as Dave dominated this week with three cartoons in the Top Ten.

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.

 

#1

Dave Whamond took the #1 most reprinted spot, by a wide margin.

#2

Bob Englehart took second place with his first of two in the Top Ten.

#3

Dave Whamond also took third place.

#4

John Cole (that’s me) nabbed 4th place.

#5

RJ Matson claims the five-spot.

#6

Rick McKee came in sixth.

#7

Jeff Koterba nabs seventh place.

#8

Dave Whamond took 8th place with his third cartoon in the Top Ten.

Cartoons from our CagleCartoonist in Ukraine – Drawn as a Refugee

Here’s an update on our friend and world renowned editorial cartoonist, Vladimir Kazanevsky.  We syndicate Vlad’s work to newspapers, see a complete archive of his work here.

Vlad and his wife fled from their home in Kiev last week because of the bombing around them. Vlad tells me he’s waiting for his sons and grandchildren to leave the city. Vlad says he doesn’t plan to leave Ukraine and he writes that he “believes in Ukraine’s victory,” but emphasizes that he “must emigrate rather than live under a Putin regime.” Vlad writes, “Cartoon art is a strong weapon in fighting for Peace. Many thanks to cartoonists from all over the World who help people to open eyes on Putin’s terroristic regime.”

Since he left his studio behind, Vlad has been doing line drawings on the road in Ukraine, and he has been sending them to us by email from his cell phone.  Here’s is the cartoon he sent today …

And two from last week, as a refugee …

Cartoons from Ukraine

We’re proud to syndicate the work of Vladimir Kazanevsky, Ukraine’s top editorial cartoonist. He now finds himself on the front lines of a war with Russia, and I thought this would be a good time to showcase the work of our brave and talented friend.  Here are Vlad’s latest cartoons about the horror of Vladimir Putin and the threat from Russia.

Vlad has has probably won more cartooning awards than any other cartoonist in the world.  See our complete archive of Vlad’s work here. Ukraine’s resistance is inspirational, as is the work of Ukraine’s brilliant cartoonist.

Here I am with Vlad in his Kyiv studio, standing in front of his trophy case, filled with awards from cartooning contests he has won – he’s got more trophy cases – they don’t all fit in one room.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – February 26th, 2022

The cartoons that editors prefer are sometimes frustrating for cartoonists. This week the TV news was 24 hours of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and we had a flood of great Putin and Ukraine cartoons — but the newspaper editors didn’t want that.

Our syndicate package at CagleCartoons.com offers a wide selection of cartoons and viewpoints so that any editor can find something they want; in practice, this allows the cartoonists to draw important cartoons on important topics, and there are always some editors, not a lot, but some, who will print these cartoons. In order to support the substantive cartoons that cartoonists want to draw, we need to sweeten our cartoon flow with the light, funny cartoons about domestic concerns that American editors want to print.  Frustrating.

As our coffers are brimming with great cartoons bashing Russia’s brutal invasion of peaceful Ukraine, here are our most reprinted cartoons – the cartoons editors chose to print – for the seven days ending  February 26th, 2022. Congratulations to Dave Granlund who took the #1 spot this week, by a healthy margin, and was also the most reprinted cartoonist of the week. And Kudos to John Darkow who has two cartoons in the Top Ten and managed to sneak in a softball about Russia.

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.
