The Top Ten Cartoons of the Week!

The good news? Home prices are dropping. Unfortunately, interest rates continue to climb as the Federal Reserve fights to slow down inflation.

Several of our most popular cartoons this week revolve around the high prices we’re all continuing to pay. Dave Whamond’s funny Monty Python riff on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was also popular with editors.

The number eight cartoon about the “Fall Equinox” is a correction of our number one cartoon from last week. Cartoonist Guy Parsons wrote the cartoon about the “Fall Solstice” and, of course, there is no such thing. A group of school children wrote to Guy about the error, and Guy made this corrected cartoon, which was also widely published. No adults complained about the “Fall Solstice” — just kids.

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

Top Ten Cartoons of September 16th, 2022!

While cartoonists have been covering the invasion since February, Ukraine’s counteroffensive against Russia last week drew new attention on a conflict that’s raged on for nearly seven months.

This week’s most reprinted cartoon was a funny poke at the debate over daylight saving time drawn by cartoonist Guy Parsons. Back in March, the U.S. Senate passed a bill that would make daylight saving time permanent starting in 2023. But like everything else in Washington these days, nothing has happened since.

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

Top Ten Cartoons of the Past Week!

President Joe Biden delivered a speech in Philadelphia last week where he called out “MAGA Republicans” and claimed former President Donald Trump and his supporters are a threat to American democracy.

Naturally, our liberal cartoonists supported what Biden said during his speech, while our conservative cartoonists thought he was a hypocrite thanks to his tone and bluntness.

Editors liked cartoons on an interesting mix of topics this week, including Labor Day, space junk, and new British Prime Minister Liz Truss.

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

#1. John Darkow, Columbia Missourian

This week, the subject of college debt was pushed front and center by President Joe Biden, who announced he would be canceling $10,000 in federal student loans per borrower. Not surprisingly, several of our most reprinted cartoons tackled the subject – both in support and critical of the administration’s plan.

Our most reprinted cartoon this week was on the start of football season, a funny one involving death drawn by Rick McKee.

hmmm … We’re COVID Cheerleaders? Top Ten COVID Cartoons

Researchers like to categorize and count things. Most of the few scholarly studies of editorial cartoons involve making subjective judgements about cartoons to divide the cartoons into categories selected for the study.

I gave Political Science professor Dr. Jody Baumgartner full access to our archives to do a study on editorial cartoons about Coronavirus. Baumgartner and his colleague Dr. Hanna Kassab categorized and counted only CagleCartoons.com content, and their study has just been published; see it here.

The study asked if political cartoonists are “Critics” or “Cheerleaders.” The researchers studied only CagleCartoons that were about COVID during the time of the pandemic.

The conclusion of the study? Political cartoonists are “cheerleaders” for the establishment. We prefer to think of ourselves as critics.  Calling us “cheerleaders” sounds a bit rude.

Perhaps Baumgartner and Kassab are conservative and were looking for more cartoons bashing Dr. Fauci, resisting mask mandates, promoting conspiracy theories, and shilling Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, injected bleach and anti-vaxxer nonsense.

Here are the ten most reprinted pandemic cartoons since 2019. (Keep in mind that editors like for us to be cheerleaders for truth.) Congratulations to Jeff Koterba for taking four out of ten, and to Rick McKee and Dave Granlund for each having two on the Top Ten!

LIZ CHENEY LAMENT: TOP TEN CARTOONS

August is typically a slow news month, but between the FBI searching Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate and the national shortage of teachers, there’s been plenty for cartoonists to draw about.

This week, editors loved Chris Weyant’s funny cartoon about confused liberals upset over Liz Cheney’s Republican primary loss. Cartoons about rent hikes, climate change, and the slow return of COVID-19 were also popular.

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

Back to School – Top Ten Cartoons of the Week

Kids are returning to school, and cartoonists sharpened their pencils this week on the many issues districts across the country face, whether it’s a shortage of teachers or out-of-control supply costs due to inflation.

There was also that FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Largo residence in Florida. While editors reprinted a number of our cartoons on the incident, just one cartoon featuring Trump made it onto our top ten list. Editors don’t like running Trump cartoons nearly as much as cartoonists love drawing them.

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

#1. Jeff Koterba, Cagle.com

#2. John Cole, Scranton Times-Tribune

 

#3. John Darkow, Columbia Missouran

 

#4. Dave Granlund, Cagle.com

 

#5. Dave Whamond, Cagle.com

 

#6. Rivers, Cagle.com

Recession Rumblings – Top 10, August 4th, 2022

Are we in a recession or not? Experts have been debating what’s going on after figures released last week showed that while the U.S. economy shrank for the second straight quarter, job growth continues to be strong.

Of course, things are falling along political lines – Republicans say we are, Democrats say we’re not. Does everything have to be about politics?

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

Top Ten Cartoons, July 30, 2022

Climate change was on the mind of cartoonists last week after much of the country was scorched by a record-breaking heat wave. Things have gotten so hot in Europe that Spain rolled out a new heat wave ranking system and the world’s first named heat wave – Zoe.

With consumers still impacted by rising prices, a few of our most reprinted cartoons this week centered on inflation and the possibility the U.S. could already be experiencing a recession. And more than two years after the start of the pandemic, COVID-19 is still showing up in cartoons.

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

#1

Chris Weyant took the #1 most reprinted spot!

#2

Jeff Koterba placed 2nd.  Here’s #2!

#3

Rick McKee  took third place!

#4

Pat Bagley nabbed 4th place.

#5

Dick Wright claims the five-spot.

#6

Rick McKee landed in sixth place.

#7

Top Ten Cartoons, July 20, 2022

Depending on what poll you read, nearly two-thirds of the country doesn’t approve of the job Joe Biden is doing as president. Crippling inflation, more COVID variants and high gas prices are just some of the issues cartoonists linked to our 46th president and his administration this week.
