Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – June 26, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the week ending  June 26th, 2021.

This was a great week for Jeff Koterba, who took the #1 spot by a big margin and has an impressive three cartoons in the Top Ten. Jeff was also the most reprinted cartoonist of the week overall.

And congrats to Dick Wright, Steve Sack and Dave Whamond who each have two cartoons in the Top Ten. And kudos to Dave Granlund who also made the list after an unbelievable performance last week.

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.

Jimmy Margulies and More Grim Cartoon News

Jimmy%20Margulies Jimmy Margulies and More Grim Cartoon News cartoonsI’m sad to report that one of my favorite cartoonists, Jimmy Margulies, is the latest editorial cartoonist to lose his job. This is a long term trend as less profitable newspapers cut back the ranks of political cartoonists. Jimmy wrote this for us:

After almost 22 and 1/2 years at The Record in northern New Jersey, I became the latest editorial cartoonist to lose a full time staff job at a daily newspaper. Despite having won a few national awards,  syndication and frequent appearances in some high profile places like USA Today, as well as being a popular local speaker and using social media to become one of the most popular features on the paper’s web site, it was not enough to save me from the paper’s decision to trim expenses.

I plan to continue my syndication with King Features as well as self syndicating  my New Jersey cartoons around the state. The Record and I have reached an agreement that I will do a Sunday cartoon for them, as well as possibly be asked to do additional work if a big story happens in the region.

Here are five of my favorite Margulies cartoons.  See Jimmy’s whole archive here.
