I'd be very interested to see examples of work by any political cartoonists from other countries. Oz has lots of really good ones.

I love cartoons!

One of my favorites is John Callahan:

I also like Lynda Berry's Ernie Pook Commik

But I really want a set of those "Bad Mom" trading cards!

There are some good political "cartoonists" in the 'old times' as well, like e.g. William Hogarth

It's fascinating to see what makes people in different cultures laugh. And how the cartoonists communicate their messages in different countries, how they make their political points .... In my opinion (here Oz, anyway) one astute political cartoon can say the same thing better than thousands of written words in articles, letters to the editor, etc ....I also observe that Oz's political cartoonists can get away with "statements" that writers wouldn't dare express in words. The best ones are very, very clever people! I love 'em!
