Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – August 29, 2020

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (August 22nd through August 29th, 2020). As usual, no drawings of president Trump were among the most popular with newspaper editors, even with the Republican convention this week. Six of the cartoons are light, life during the pandemic cartoons. Three are “back to school during the pandemic” cartoons, which remains the most popular topic with editors.

Congratulations to the two CagleCartoonists who have two cartoons each in the Top Ten, Dave Whamond (#1 and #8 – as he did last week) and Jeff Koterba (#3 and #8). I was happy to see Randy Enos come in with a strong #2!  Kudos to the other cartoonists who made the most reprinted list this week, Steve SackAdam Zyglis, Dave Granlund, Dave Fitzsimmons and Gary McCoy.

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.


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, 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.

The world needs political cartoonists more now than ever. Please consider supporting Cagle.com and visit Cagle.com/heroes.  We need you! Don’t let the cartoons die!


#1

Congratulations to Dave Whamond  who drew the #1 most reprinted cartoon again this week, the first of Dave’s two cartoons in the Top Ten!

#2

Randy Enos takes second place. The top two cartoons stood out as much more reprinted than the rest this week.

 

#3

Jeff Koterba takes 3rd place.

#4

Adam Zyglis takes 4th place.

 

#5

Dave Fitzsimmons takes for 5th place.

 

#6

Steve Sack ties for 6th place with a drawing of the White House that doesn’t show Trump – would fewer editors have reprinted this one if Trump was in it?

 

#6

Dave Granlund is also tied for 6th place, with the only hurricane cartoon.

#8

Jeff Koterba  is tied for 8th place with his second cartoon in the Top Ten.

 

#8

Dave Whamond is tied for 8th place with his second cartoon on our most reprinted list. Dave could just as easily chosen to put Trump in the place of the Republican elephant, and if he did, I’ll bet the cartoon wouldn’t have made the Top Ten.

#10

Gary McCoy claims the ten spot with this Biden bashing cartoon. There are very few cartoons about Biden and editors clearly want more.

Joe and Kamala

The Democratic Convention wraps up tonight, and California Senator Kamala Harris has accepted the Vice Presidential nomination. Here’s my Kamala and Joe in the shadow convention cartoon.

I did a color version, but I like the black and white better.

I’ll be reluctantly voting for Biden/Harris as the lesser of two evils. I’ve never forgiven Biden for his repugnant behavior in the Anita Hill hearing. And I don’t like Kamala Harris’ zeal in jailing thousands of non-violent marijuana offenders in California.

Here are my favorite Biden/Harris cartoons from the convention!

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – August 15, 2020

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (August 8th through August 15th, 2020). As usual, cartoonists drew president Trump in many cartoons, but no drawings of Trump were among the most popular with newspaper editors.

Dave Granlund is on top this week with the #1 and #6 cartoons! Dave Whamond also has an impressive showing with two cartoons in the Top Ten.

Kudos to the other six CagleCartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this week: John Darkow, Rick McKee, Ed Wexler, Randy Enos, Jeff Koterba 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 syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – August 8, 2020

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (August 1st through August 8th, 2020). For the first time since March, a drawing of Trump has made the Top Ten in John Darkow’s #8 cartoon showing Trump as a dog biting a postman. Trump’s attacks on the Post Office are a very popular topic right now (but usually without showing Trump). Seven of the Top Ten cartoons reference the pandemic, two are about the Post Office, and one is about Joe Biden.

Jeff Koterba dominates the week with three cartoons in the Top Ten, taking the #1, #4 and #6 spots! Steve Sack has an impressive showing with #2 and #3.

Kudos to our other five cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this week: RJ Matson, Dave Whamond, John Darkow, Rick McKee and Kevin Siers!

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.

Kevin Siers takes the ten spot.

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.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – July 18, 2020

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (July 11 through July 18, 2020). As usual, no drawings of President Trump are among the most reprinted cartoons.  This week has the usual steep curve between the most popular cartoons and all the rest. Only five cartoons were related to the pandemic this week, four cartoons featured sports in some way, and there were two Back to School cartoons.

Gary McCoy takes the top spot by a wide margin, with an unusual Joe Biden bashing cartoon that doesn’t show Biden or Trump –something that seems to be a requirement among editors.  Dave Whamond dominated again this week with three cartoons in the Top Ten, all part of a crazy four-way tie for second place. Pat Bagley impresses with two cartoons on the list this week.

Congratulations to the other cartoonists who made the Top Ten this week, John Cole, Jeff Koterba, Bill Day 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.

Dave Whamond follows with his 2nd #2, another Back to School cartoon.

 

#2

Here’s Dave Whamond dominating the Top Ten again this week, with his 3rd #2.

The Most Popular Cartoons of the Month, May 2020

Here are the most popular cartoons of the month of May, 2020. Regular readers of my blog and newsletter will have seen all of these cartoons in our weekly roundups of the Top Ten Most Popular cartoons. Our Top Ten is a measure of how many of our subscribing newspaper editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 63 cartoonists in our syndication package. The list clearly shows that newspaper editors have been looking for cartoons about the lighter side of the pandemic.

I’d like to keep these lists to only ten cartoons, but this month we had a three way tie for the 10th place cartoon so there are 12 cartoons on the list. Out of the top 12, a whopping five cartoons are by Jeff Koterba of The Omaha World-Herald (Jeff sneaked two of those into the tie for 10th place). The #1 cartoon is by Steve Sack of The Minneapolis Star-Tribune. I had two cartoons on the list myself. Congratulations to the other cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this month, RJ Matson, Nate Beeler, Dave Granlund and Randy Enos.

20% of the cartoonists get 80% of the sales and reprints, and most of the cartoonists never make it into the Top Ten.  If you don’t like the Top Ten, take it up with your local newspaper editor. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers subscribe to CagleCartoons.com.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – May 30, 2020

Here are the ten most popular cartoons of the week (May 23 -May 30).

The stats this week were unusual. The beginning of the week followed a familiar pattern of editors choosing light cartoons about the mature coronavirus story, with my own, light virus cartoon from last Sunday claiming the week’s top spot. Later in the week the news turned to Trump’s Twitter distraction and the murder of George Floyd. Few cartoons stood out in the stats this week as usage was flattened among a larger number of topics. The international cartoonists were virtually shut out and not reprinted at all.  There is a disconnect between what cartoonists want to draw, what editors want to print and what readers want to see; this week that divide was plain to see as cartoons that were popular on social media were ignored by editors.

Congratulations to Nate Beeler for coming in at #2, and Kudos to Randy Enos who makes his first appearance in the Top Ten at #3. Hearty congrats to the rest of the artists with cartoons that were the most reprinted in newspapers this week: Steve Sack, Adam Zyglis, Dave Whamond, Bruce Plante, Jeff Koterba, John Cole and Bob Englehart.

Our top ten is a measure of how many of our subscribing newspaper editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 63 cartoonists in our syndication package. 20% of the cartoonists get 80% of the sales and reprints, and most of the cartoonists never make it into the Top Ten.  If you don’t like the top ten, take it up with your local newspaper editor. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers subscribe to CagleCartoons.com.

Thinking of Michael Flynn

I get a cable TV channel that lets me see a view of four news networks at once and I regularly switch back and forth between CNN, BBC, MSNBC and Fox News – and Fox News is a completely different world, especially the past couple of days as they have obsessed over the Michael Flynn story while other news focuses almost exclusively on the pandemic.

One thing I wanted to do in the cartoon was to draw the screaming Democrat donkey with a mask, and the daydreaming, pandemic-disinterested Republican with no mask. It occurred to me – what if I wanted to draw the elephant with a mask; how would I do that? A mask is supposed to cover your nose. Would the elephant have a mask the size of a bed sheet? Would his mask have a hose-like extension for his trunk? If I drew anything like that, would it even look like a mask?

These are important questions for Republicans, but only if they are going to wear masks. Wearing a mask is effective in protecting others, not yourself, so it makes ideological sense why Republicans would not want to wear them … still, if MAGA Republicans did want to wear them, I’d be in cartoon trouble.

Here is the rough sketch for this one, that I drew on a piece of Cagle Cartoons letterhead.

Notice that I thought about drawing the elephant in a Fox News t-shirt, but I decided against it. FoxNews.com used to be a great subscriber to CagleCartoons, but they recently cancelled their subscription. That’s very disappointing and a giant step in their descent into hell.

This post got me to thinking, so I drew this …

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – May 2, 2020

Here are the ten most popular cartoons of the week (April 25 -May 2). Sorry I’m a little late this week, we had some technical problems over the weekend –but here they are!

20% of the cartoonists draw 80% of the cartoons that get reprinted. We have dozens of cartoonists in our little syndicate, but only a few cartoons each week catch the fancy of editors and that is easy to see this week. Bruce Plante of The Tulsa World newspaper in Oklahoma has three cartoons in this week’s top ten most reprinted cartoons. Gannett’s freelance cartoonist Dave Granlund and John Cole of The Times-Tribune in Scranton Pennsylvania round out the list with two each, with John taking the prize for the most popular cartoon of the week –about golf.

Forgotten Biden – Part 1

With all eyes on the pandemic there are very few cartoons being drawn about the presidential election. Trump still dominates cartoons, along with nasty coronavirus monster-balls, but poor Joe Biden has become almost invisible.  I thought I would scour the database for nice, recent Biden cartoons, and there were enough for only two posts of Biden cartoons. Here they are, the recent Biden cartoons, with part two tomorrow.

We may end up re-electing Trump simply because we all forgot that there is a presidential election this year.
