China Digests Hong Kong

While the world is absorbed by the coronavirus, China’s nominal legislature decided take away any doubts about Hong Kong independent “special status.” Protestors are now facing the full brunt of China’s heavy hand. I drew this as the Chinese panda digesting Hong Kong, and burping.

I debated whether I should make the burpy umbrellas yellow; yellow umbrellas were the symbol of Hong Kong’s protestors in 2014, and more recent protests have embraced black umbrellas as protection against projectiles and water cannons from police, so I went with black

There aren’t many cartoons about Hong Kong now and my cartoon probably won’t get much ink – still, this should be a time for Hong Kong cartoons. I have selected some of my favorite Hong Kong protest cartoons from the past few years.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – May 23, 2020

Here are the ten most popular cartoons of the week (May 16 -May 23).

Congratulations to Steve Sack who has the most popular cartoon of the week and two cartoons in the Top Ten! Bob Englehart also impresses with two of the most popular cartoons. Kudos go to the other cartoonists on the list, Dave Granlund, Dave Fitzsimmons, Bruce Plante, Jeff Koterba, Bill Day and RJ Matson. Eight of the Top Ten cartoons were about the pandemic – that is the fewest coronavirus cartoons on the list in weeks! We’ve flattened the curve!

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.
