Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (December 26th through January 2nd 2021).
Eight of the cartoons are on a New Years theme. As usual, there are no cartoons about Trump or Biden. Editors were most interested in cartoons about how terrible 2020 was.
The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints.
The top cartoons on the list performed especially well, and the top three each would have been a number one cartoon in a normal week. Congratulations to #1 Dave Whamond, #2 Dave Granlund and #3 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 CagleCartoons.com 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, 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.
