Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – November 28, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (November 21st through November 28th 2020). The Top Ten cartoons dominated newspaper editors’ choices again this week. The top three cartoons did especially well.

Six holiday cartoons made the list; seven of the cartoons were about the pandemic. No drawings of Trump or Biden were popular with newspaper editors. No cartoons about foreign issues were popular. The Top Ten cartoons dominated the choices of editors, again this week.

Dave Granlund had a great week with a very popular #1 cartoon and two cartoons in the Top Ten. Dave Whamond and Jeff Koterba also had impressive weeks, each with two cartoons on the list.

Congratulations to the other cartoonists who had the most reprinted cartoons this week: Steve Sack, Dave Fitzsimmons, John Cole and Rick McKee.

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, 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!

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – November 21, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (November 14th through November 21st 2020). The Top Ten cartoons dominated newspaper editors’ choices this week with all ten tightly bunched, close to equally popular and far ahead of the rest of the cartoons in reprints.

Thanksgiving/pandemic combo cartoons were most popular this week, with six of these making the Top Ten. Again, no drawings of Trump were popular with editors, even while Trump continues to dominate the news. Editors avoided scores of cartoons about the messy presidential transition, crazy Rudy Guiliani and claims of election fraud.  As usual, no foreign topics were popular with American editors. Only one cartoon on the list (Bob Englehart at #2) expresses a political view, however mildly – unless concern about the pandemic is considered a political view.

Congratulations to Dave Whamond for his #1 cartoon.  Kudos to Jeff Koterba and Dave Fitzsimmons who both have two cartoons in the Top Ten!

And congrats to the other cartoonists who made the Top Ten list this week: Bob Englehart, John Darkow, Dave Granlund, Bruce Plante, and me.

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

Dave Whamond’s Thanksgiving/pandemic/Rockwell cartoon takes first place.

Bob Englehart takes second place with one of the few political cartoons mentioning politics that editors liked this week.

#6

Bruce Plante nabs 6th place with yet another Thanksgiving/pandemic cartoon.

#8

Daryl Cagle (that’s me) takes 8th place with the second vaccine cartoon on the list.

 

#8

Dave Fitzsimmons is tied for 8th place with this Pandemic/Back to School/Zoom/Kitty cartoon. Gotta love kitties.

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 …

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.

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.

Anti-Vaxxer Celebrities

Anti-Vaxxers have been out in force, protesting California’s Senate Bill 276 that would make it harder for unethical doctors to grant bogus medical exemptions to parents who don’t want to vaccinate their children. Ignorant celebrities have been leading the charge. Last week we got stories about Justin Timberlake’s wife, Jessica Biel doing the lobbying rounds both evil. anti-vaxxer conspiracy theorist, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

The dangerous, celebrity idiots don’t like to be called “anti-vaxxers,” they prefer to be described as “pro-informed consent,” or “pro-vaccine choice,” or “anti-forced vaccination,” or “vaccine risk aware,” all of which mean the same thing. Dangerous and ignorant. Here’s an cartoon about the anti-vaxxers that I drew three years ago …

Here are some of my favorite anti-vaxxer cartoons by my buddies – these first two are by Nate Beeler.

 

The next two are by Steve Sack

This one is by Adam Zyglis

 

Here’s Dave Whamond on the celebrity asses …

 

Here’s a nice one from Dave Granlund.

Flu Epidemic Grips America

The new on TV often doesn’t match up well with the news that actually affects most people – by that measure, I think theft epidemic is the biggest story in the USA right now, with hospitals filled to overflowing across the nation. Also, it is an excuse to draw something different than the rest of the pack of editorial cartoonists who are obsessed with Trump every day.

It is so nice to have an opportunity to draw a nasty monster. I thought about drawing a “flu bug” insect, like the Zika cartoon below …

But the Zika epidemic was transmitted by roaming mosquitos. My “flu bug” looks a bit too much like a reptile.

The image at the right, from Wikipedia, shows what the “flu bug” actually looks like. I don’t find this image to be very interesting; it has no eyes, or legs, or teeth, or snot. If is was an amoeba shape I could take some license with the shape to make arms and legs, but no.

Reptiles are threatening, so, what the hell. The flu is trouble for everybody, including me.
