Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – November 28, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (November 21st through November 28th 2020). The Top Ten cartoons dominated newspaper editors’ choices again this week. The top three cartoons did especially well.

Six holiday cartoons made the list; seven of the cartoons were about the pandemic. No drawings of Trump or Biden were popular with newspaper editors. No cartoons about foreign issues were popular. The Top Ten cartoons dominated the choices of editors, again this week.

Dave Granlund had a great week with a very popular #1 cartoon and two cartoons in the Top Ten. Dave Whamond and Jeff Koterba also had impressive weeks, each with two cartoons on the list.

Congratulations to the other cartoonists who had the most reprinted cartoons this week: Steve Sack, Dave Fitzsimmons, John Cole and Rick McKee.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com

Some pundits predict that a large percentage of newspapers won’t survive the pandemic economic slump, and as newspapers sink, so do editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers, and along with them, our Cagle.com site, that our small, sinking syndicate largely supports, along with our fans.

COVID Christmas

A day after Thanksgiving and the cartoonist all turn to Christmas. (Actually they were starting to draw Christmas cartoons well before Thanksgiving, but I waited until the day after.)

My cartoon is inspired by the tree in A Charlie Brown Christmas. I love Peanuts and this classic TV special.

A little love won’t help with the pandemic this Christmas, but some common sense, limiting travel and wearing masks will help.

The Charlie Brown Christmas tree is not an uncommon metaphor in editorial cartoons. After I drew my COVID tree I did a search in our vast PoliticalCartoons.com database and I found this nice one from CagleCartoonist Dave Whamond.

Going back farther, I found this one by CagleCartoonist Milt Priggee, from ten years ago.

That’s the Obama/Biden campaign logo on the ornament. I can’t remember what was going on that would make Milt draw this, two years after Obama’s election, but I like Milt’s tree better than mine. Charlie Brown’s tree always leans to the left; leaning to the right is wrong – maybe Milt didn’t like Obama leaning to the right.

VACCINE!

Today we got news of a new vaccine, from the drug giant Moderna, that is 95% effective against COVID19.  This comes shortly after the news from drug giant Pfizer of a vaccine that is 90% effective, but more difficult to deal with – both are great news. Here’s my cartoon …

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – November 14, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (November 7th through November 14th 2020). This week the editors flocked to the same cartoons, as usual, with the few, most popular cartoons far outpacing the rest.

This week’s #1 cartoon by Jeff Koterba is the second most reprinted editorial cartoon of the year, and it may yet overtake Dave Granlund’s #1 cartoon of the year so far, from three weeks ago. The #2 cartoon by Dave Whamond would have been a strong #1 in a typical week where the usage curve wasn’t quite so steep.

Dave Whamond and Dave Granlund both impress with two cartoons each on the Top Ten. Hearty congratulations to the other cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this week, Dave Fitzsimmons, Pat Byrnes, Monte Wolverton, Randy Enos and Gary McCoy

The most popular topic this week was Alex Trebek. Only two cartoons referencing the pandemic made the Top Ten list.  Cartoonists drew scores of cartoons about Trump’s refusal to accept the election results this week, but only three were popular with editors who ignored most of these cartoons.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com

#1

Jeff Koterba‘s #1 cartoon was the most reprinted cartoon of the week by far.

 

#2

Dave Whamond has the first of three Alex Trebek obit cartoons in the Top Ten. Editors seem to love cartoons that marvel at what a bad year 2020 is.

 

#3

Dave Whamond also nabs third place. In a week where Trump’s refusal to accept the election results dominated the news, few cartoons on the topic were popular with newspaper editors.

 

#4

Dave Fitzsimmons takes 4th place with the second Alex Trebek cartoon on the list.

 

#5

Dave Granlund takes fifth place with the third Alex Trebek obit cartoon.

 

#6

Dave Granlund also takes 6th place.

 

#7

Pat Byrnes nabs 7th place.

 

#8

Monte Wolverton takes 8th place.

 

#9

Randy Enos nabs 9th place with this nice pandemic cartoon.

 

#10

Gary McCoy wraps up the Top Ten with this Veterans Day cartoon. In other years, Veterans Day got more attention from both editors and cartoonists.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – October 31, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (October 24th, through October 31st, 2020). Newspaper editors flocked to the same, few cartoons and most of the cartoons got little or no exposure. Cartoons mentioning Trump or Biden were unpopular with editors again this week.

Editors’ collective preference for a handful of cartoons was never clearer to see as the #1 and #2 cartoons this week were also the #1 and #2 cartoons of the year, since we started keeping comparative usage statistics last January. Congratulations to Dave Granlund for his runaway #1 cartoon and to Dave Whamond for his #2 of the week and year.

Special congratulations to John Darkow who has two cartoons in the Top Ten this week, and kudos to the other cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons: Gary McCoy, Jeff Koterba, Chris Weyant, Pat Bagley, Bob Englehart and Dave Fitzsimmons.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com

Church Superspreaders

Here’s my new one about COVID super spreader churches.

This is a recurring theme, where big, conservative churches that take a Trumpy, casual attitude about the pandemic, insist on holding their indoor, massless, mass events with singing, no distancing, and lots of disease spreading.

This church/hands thing is a kind of standard for editorial cartoonists, like the Hokey Pokey or the theme from Gilligan’s Island, or the Cats Cradle game. Some years ago I drew a similar cartoon about Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate, and I lifted the first panel for the new cartoon. The perspective on the hands in the first panel is odd, because we usually see the other side, with the thumbs as doors, but that is the view of the person who is performing this, and not the observer, and I like flipping it open with the thumbs on the close side. Yes, I think about all this stuff.

The oldie wasn’t a very strong cartoon. The first panel was fine, but I didn’t like the awkward second panel hands – that needed a redo, so I drew my own hands today. (There seems to be some disagreement about whether the “people” should properly be presented upright or upside-down.)

And I drew some coronavirus and assembled this in Photoshop.

That’s your recipe for a church pandemic cartoon.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – October 24, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (October 17th, through October 24th, 2020). As usual, drawings of President Trump were not popular with newspaper editors, but a tiny Trump sneaked into the Top Ten in John Cole‘s #4 debate cartoon.  Again this week the Top Ten cartoons dominated newspaper reprints as less popular cartoons got little or no ink and editors flocked to the same cartoons.

Dave Whamond had a fantastic week with three cartoons in the Top Ten – Dave’s #1 cartoon was a hit that ranks in the top five of the year.  John Cole also had an impressive week with two cartoons in the Top Ten.

Congratulations to the other CagleCartoonists with Top Ten cartoons this week: Gary McCoy,  John Darkow,  Jeff Koterba, Randy Enos and Chris Weyant.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com

Heard Immunity

I don’t draw many crowd scenes, but the dangerous, maskless, science denying Trump crowds seem to be the story today. Here’s a detail from my new cartoon …

And here’s my new cartoon about “Heard Immunity” with a Trump rally-herd of COVID fodder.

And here’s the rough sketch. It’s crazy that people want to see the sketches.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – October 17, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (October 10th, through October 17th, 2020). As usual, no drawings of President Trump were popular with newspaper editors.  Typically 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints; this week it is more like 10% of the cartoons getting 90% of the reprints as less popular cartoons got little or no ink and editors flocked to the same cartoons.

My own cartoon from last Sunday was #1 this week, by a big margin; in fact, it is the most reprinted cartoon since we starting keeping comparative download stats from subscribing newspaper editors at the beginning of the year.

Dave Whamond also stood well above the crowd with a #2 cartoon that would have been a strong #1 in any other week. Dave and I both had two cartoons on the Top Ten this week. Congratulations to the other cartoonists who made the unusually hot Top Ten this week, Dave Fitzsimmons, Steve Sack, Dave Granlund, Rick McKee, Kevin Siers and RJ Matson.

COVID Halloween

Halloween cartoons are always popular, and this year it will be a COVID Halloween. I’m a little early with my new cartoon, but I’m far from the first this year. I expect there will be many more.  See my archive.

 

Dave Whamond’s Halloween Grinch cartoon is crazy popular with editors, and has a shot at #1 on this week’s Top Ten.

 

Dave Granlund’s COVID Halloween cartoon is crazy popular too.

 

Our realistic, Dutch, CagleCartoonist, Bart van Leeuwen made a great Halloween Grim Reaper Trump.

We’ll post some more Halloween cartoons when we have a good batch.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – October 10, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (October 3rd, through October 10th, 2020). As usual, no drawings of President Trump were popular with editors, even with Trump dominating the news every day.

My own cartoon was #1 this week, by an unusually wide margin. Dave Whamond had a whopper of a week with three cartoons in the Top Ten. Steve Sack and Dave Granlund also had impressive weeks, each taking two spots on the Top Ten.

Congratulations to the other two cartoonists with Top Ten cartoons: Jeff Koterba and Rick McKee.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com. 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints, and the Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see inter newspapers.
