Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – April 3, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the week ending April 3rd, 2021. Four cartoons are about Easter, five are about the pandemic and two are about infrastructure.

Congratulations to Rick McKee who ran well ahead of the pack with a strong first place cartoon. Congrats to Dave Whamond, Dave Granlund and Jeff Koterba who each have two cartoons in the Top Ten this week. Kudos to RJ Matson, Bill Day and John Darkow who also had most reprinted cartoons this week.

Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com. These are the cartoons that editors liked best, 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.

COVID-19 Tsunami Coming

The coronavirus tsunami is coming soon, and President Trump’s plans for crowded churches on Easter and county by county closures is looking pretty stupid in the shadow of the oncoming wave.

I would have liked to make Trump smaller, compared to the wave, but there is only so much I can do to keep a cartoon readable at the small sizes it will often be reprinted in.

Readers may recognize The Great Wave off Kanagawa, perhaps the most famous Japanese woodblock print ever, by Katsushika Hokusai in the early 19th Century. I love the wave.

Trump and the Easter Bunny

There has been a lot of talk about Donald Trump’s foreign policy advisors. Trump says he consults himself on foreign policy issues, which makes for a nice Easter cartoon. The cartoon harkens back to Jimmy Stewart’s “Harvey” the invisible bunny friend.

Five Easter Cartoons About the 2012 Primary

I know a lot of cartoonists hate drawing holiday cartoons, but I always look forward to using the unique visual imagery every holiday has to offer in new and interesting ways.

As we’re in the midst of a contentious Republican primary for the party’s Presidential representative, I thought it’d be cool to post five cartoons weighing in on the race using Easter imagery. It’s just too bad they weren’t all drawn on eggs…

Easter According to Cam Cardow

Many cartoonists handle holidays very differently. Some prefer to use the opportunity to create funny gags, while others try to tie in the unique imagery to an event or issue that’s currently in the news.

Cam Cardow, the brilliant cartoonist for the Ottawa Citizen, has always treated Easter with a respect not often seen among the bunnies and chocolate candies. Many are more like illustrations than traditional cartoons.

I asked Cam to share his thoughts about his Easter cartoons, and here’s what he e-mailed me:

I don’t have an issue when a cartoonist expresses personal faith or a belief system in a cartoon. In fact, we do it all the time by aligning with certain social issues and political parties. I just happen to be a believer in the personage of Jesus Christ, his historical role, ancient origins, his death and ultimately, his resurrection. Regardless of my walk in this life, I know who he is and I will always acknowledge that in person and in my art. My belief of who he was and is a key component to who I am. Therefore, I publicly acknowledge it.

Here are some of his best Easter cartoons…
