Here’s my new COVID cartoon, about all of the states that are dropping their mask mandates just as COVID cases are spiking. That includes: Texas, Alaska, Arizona,Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

I gave the maskless idiot the same basic face as the Coronaviruses – it’s only fair.

And here are some of my recent Covid favorites …

Texas COVID Party

Texas Governor Greg Abbot just dropped COVID restrictions on business and masks, at a time when new variants of the virus are threatening a new resurgence. Mississippi too. Some other states dropping restrictions to a lesser degree. Bad timing for public health but it is always good timing for cartoonists.  Here’s mine:

And here are my recent favorites on Texas’ reckless health blunder. This one is by Steve Sack

 

This one is by Rick McKee

 

This one is by Adam Zyglis

Top Ten Cartoons of 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the year, 2020. We have about 700 newspapers in the USA that subscribe to our CagleCartoons.com syndicate service and we collect data on which cartoons newspaper editors download; these cartoons were the biggest hits – each was the #1 cartoons the week it ran.

The most reprinted cartoons of the year provide a clear lesson in what newspaper editors wanted to see with five of the cartoons explicitly about the pandemic and a couple of others generally about bad times. The cartoons emphasize how much editors want to see cartoons about holidays and events (Christmas, New Year, Election Day, Daylight Savings Time Day, change of season). The cartoons also clearly show how most newspaper editors tend to avoid cartoons about politics and president Trump, to the frustration of the political cartoonists.

What is most amazing about the Top Ten cartoons this year is the stellar performance of Dave Granlund who took the #1 and #2 spots with the most reprinted cartoons of the year. Jeff Koterba, Dave Whamond and I have two cartoons each on the list.

Congratulations to the other cartoonists with a most reprinted cartoons of the year: Dave Fitzsimmons. Rick McKee and Steve Sack! Check out the cartoons below!

#1

Dave Granlund wins the year with this wildly popular Christmas/Pandemic cartoon.

 

#2

Dave Granlund also takes second place with this Election Day reminder cartoon. Call to vote cartoons were very popular this year.

 

#3

Jeff Koterba takes third place with his first of two cartoons in the Top Ten.

 

#4

Dave Whamond takes 4th place, with the first of two cartoons on the list. Cartoons complaining about what a terrible year 2020 was, were very popular.

 

#5

I took 5th place with this general complaint about the bad times.

 

#6

Jeff Koterba takes 6th place with this COVID/New Year combo – his second on the list.

 

#7

My second cartoon on the list was a call to vote emphasizing “mail-in voting” which President Trump claimed was fraudulent because more Democrats tend to vote by mail.

 

#8

Dave Whamond claims 8th place with this cartoon about distance learning. Cartoons about school during the pandemic were top performers with editors this year.

 

#9

Rick McKee takes 9th place with Christmas/COVID combo cartoon.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – December 26, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (December 19th through December 26th 2020).

There were no big, dominating hit cartoons this week, with all of the Top Ten cartoons performing moderately well and tightly bunched. We saw a transition from Christmas themed cartoons to New Years cartoons.  Seven of the ten cartoons allude to the pandemic and stay-at-home orders.

The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints.

John Cole won the week with a snowy/COVID/remote-learning cartoon. Rick McKee and Jeff Koterba are impressive with two cartoons each on the Top Ten list.

Congratulations to the other cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons of the week: Bill Day, Dave Whamond, Dave Granlund,  John Darkow, 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

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – December 12, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (December 5th through December 12th 2020).

Six of the cartoons combined Christmas with Covid themes, which is clearly what newspaper editors want to see right now. As usual, no drawings of Trump or Biden made the Top Ten, even as transition problems and Trump’s last lawsuit dominated cable news. No cartoons about foreign issues were popular, despite some excellent cartoons about Boris Johnson, the EU and failing Brexit trade negotiations.

The Top Ten cartoons are what readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints.

Rick McKee won the week with a strong #1 cartoon,  Jeff Koterba and John Darkow each had two cartoons in the Top Ten. Great work, gentlemen.

Congratulations to the other cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons of the week, RJ MatsonPat ByrnesNate Beeler, Dave Granlund and John Cole.

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

Rick McKee wins the week with this very popular Christmas/pandemic cartoon.

 

#2

RJ Matson takes second place with this impressive cartoon that he tells me he created in Photoshop in only two hours. Unbelievable.

 

#3

Jeff Koterba snags third place with this Christmas/COVID combo cartoon.

 

#4

Jeff Koterba takes 4th place with another Christmas/COVID combo cartoon.

 

#5

Nate Beeler takes 5th place with this Christmas/COVID combo cartoon.

 

#6

Pat Byrnes claims 6th place with this COVID cartoon.

 

#7

John Darkow claims 7th place with a cartoon implying that 2020 was a bad year and 2021 will be better – one of the most popular themes for editors.

 

#8

John Darkow wins 8th place with this Chuck Yeager memorial cartoon. There was a time when obit cartoons were the most popular with editors, but those days have been drowned out by the pandemic.

 

#9

Dave Granlund nabs 8th place with the only cartoon about the ugly presidential transition that dominates the news, but not the ink. The candy coating of a 2020 year cartoon makes it a cartoon that editors will swallow.

 

#10

John Cole takes 10th place with a cartoon about virtual learning during the pandemic. Education during the pandemic is another favorite theme for editors.
