USA vs World Vaccines

Vaccines are just now becoming available to all age groups in the USA, and we’re well on track to getting enough people vaccinated by this Summer. In the rest of the world the pandemic grows much worse. China and Russia are doling their dubious vaccines out to desperate nations to curry foreign favor, without revealing the testing data and background research for their vaccines that appear to be less effective than the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines in the USA. The AstraZeneca vaccine hasn’t been approved in America, but is the only choice in Europe, where health scares have led to bans and distrust. After an ugly year, the privileged USA is taking care of itself while the rest of the globe suffers, begging for vaccine scraps.

I thought about labeling the Jim Crow drinking fountains “USA” and “World” – maybe I should have since it isn’t a race disparity, rather it is the privileged compared to the needy; I’m still not sure that was a good editorial choice.

Here are some cartoons from the CagleCartoonists about the lousy vaccines the world is stuck with.

Making Teachers Come Back to the Classroom

Guantanamo Vaccine and Invitation

I flip back and forth between news channels and I saw the news about the Guantanamo prisoners get COVID-19 vaccine before almost everyone else can get it. And I noticed that this story didn’t seem to exist on the mainstream news channels, and I though the old lady saying “Death to America” was kind of funny.  Imagine my disappointment this morning when the cartoon was almost finished and I hear the news that the military was putting the Guantanamo prisoner vaccinations “on hold” while they reconsider it.

SO, I made a last minute change to the wording.

… and the cartoon isn’t as good.

But what the heck.

Hey, check this out … Our own Steve Sack has won the most recent National Press Foundation (NPF) Berryman Award. The NPF usually has a big, annual banquet for their award winners but this year, because of the pandemic, they are having a free, online event on “Hopin“, and they have invited everyone to attend.

The meeting starts at 5 p.m. Pacific Time ON FEBRUARY 18TH, with the main program at 5:30 Pacific – 6:15 pm. followed by a “break-out-room” from 6:15 pm to 6:45 p.m. where Steve Sack will be speaking about his work. It will be moderated by last year’s Berryman winner, CagleCartoonist R. J. Matson. Register for the event at: https://hopin.com/events/npf-2021-awards-celebration You will receive a Zoom-like email 24 hours prior to the event, which will give you another link OR you can also use the same registration link at that time – it goes to the same place on Hopin.

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 …

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.

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.

COVID President

Here’s a collection of my favorite, new cartoons about Trump having COVID, starting with my latest cartoon.

The last day of cartoons were about Trump’s return to the White House from the hospital.  This one is from Dave Granlund.

 

 

This Pat Bagley cartoon made me laugh.

Ed Wexler’s MAGAritte struck me funny.

 

This Rick McKee cartoon is an early favorite with editors.

This one bounced in from RJ Matson.

Trump has COVID

Late last night we got the news that President Trump and First Lady Melania have tested positive for Coronavirus. Social media exploded with sarcasm and righteous indignation because of the president’s history of refusing to wear a mask, his super spreader, maskless rallies and his many statements diminishing the importance of the pandemic. The cartoons started coming in this morning – here is mine.

 

Here’s another one inspired by the laughter on social media, from our Dutch cartoonist, Jos Collignon.

This one is from David Fitzsimmons.

 

Here’s one from Bob Englehart.

 

And Dave Granlund.

 

This one is from Jeff Koterba.

 

Our conservative, Trump supporting cartoonist, Gary McCoy, almost never draws president Trump; this morning he made an exception.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – August 1, 2020

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (July 25 through August 1, 2020). As usual, no drawings of President Trump are among the most reprinted cartoons –and we had lots of cartoonists draw Trump this week.

Christopher Weyant takes the the #1 spot, running away with the week by a wide margin!

No one has two cartoons in the Top Ten list this week, so kudos to our other nine cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this week:  Jeff Koterba, Rick McKee, John Cole, RJ Matson, Steve Sack, Dave Granlund, John Darkow, Nate Beeler and Bruce Plante.

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

#1

Congratulations to Christopher Weyant, who drew the #1 most reprinted cartoon this week!

#2

Jeff Koterba takes second place.

 

#3

Rick McKee takes the #3 spot. There are two Biden cartoons in the Top Ten this week. There are very few cartoons drawn about Biden, and clearly editors would like to see more.

 

#4

Steve Sack is part of a three-way tie for 4th place.

 

#4

Here’s RJ Matson, also tied for 4th place.

 

#4

John Cole shares 4th place with a “back to school” COVID cartoon, still a popular topic with editors.

 

#7

Here’s Dave Granlund in seventh place with another “back to school,” COVID cartoon.

#8

John Darkow is in 8th place. Trump’s crazy comments about his simple cognitive test were a popular topic with editors, but only if the cartoons didn’t show Trump.

 

#9

Nate Beeler takes the #9 position with the second Biden cartoon on the Top Ten, and the second cognitive test cartoon.

#10

Bruce Plante takes the ten spot.

Dr. Fauci – Part 3

Here’s my new cartoon about Trump and Dr. Fauci. This has been an interesting couple of weeks as White House bigwigs have been anonymously dishing dirt on Dr. Fauci, followed by Trump’s advisor, Peter Navarro, writing an op-ed in USA Today bashing Fauci, making false claims that USA Today later had to walk back. Fauci’s realism conflicts with Trump’s push to minimize the perception of the coronavirus threat.

This is a very difficult time for journalism as newspapers and news sites are losing their advertisers, who are shuttered during the pandemic. It is the same with Cagle Cartoons, as our newspaper clients are getting later and later in paying their bills, making cash flow difficult for us as well.

The pandemic may be the end for many of the newspapers that support our profession, but we can survive with your help. If you are a Cagle.com fan, please make a small contribution to support the cartoons.
