I miss Something Awful’s Political Cartoons thread A LOT, so let’s recreate it. This is the thread for mocking and discussing political cartoons from all nations!
( Cool Banner Goes Here Eventually, But I Don’t Feel Like Making It Right Now )
This thread will probably feature a LOT of cartoons that are sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, etc, etc, etc. We’re here to make fun of those a LOT as well as mock just plain bad concepts and crummy art.
Good baseline thread rules:
- If a cartoon contains nudity, please either censor that shit or maybe just link to it and put a warning up next to it!
- Don’t harass any cartoonists featured in this thread. There’s a lot of stupid shithead illustrators out there and it may be tempting to confront them but please, we don’t want the drama. Make fun of them here, not to their face.
- Preferably no amateur work (deviantart cartoonists and stuff), let’s stick to mostly-syndicated cartoonists, with a few exceptions.
Meme I wanna keep: “A Good Cartoon” (AGC): A political cartoon where, in trying to decry something, actually makes it seem good or otherwise can be easily interpreted to have the completely opposite meaning. Here’s a good example by professional conservative hatemongering fuckface AF Branco:
"Wow the Tolerant Left are fucking BADASSES, holy shit. AGC."

Here’s some of my favorite dudes!
Table of pretty okay guys (aka liberals):
Don Asmussen (Bad Reporter)
David Pope (Australian!)
The Onion’s Stan Kelly (a parody of dumb political cartoonists, by Ward Sutton)
Table of shitty dinguses (aka conservatives):
AF Branco (yes, he is serious and is not a parody like Kelly)
David Dees (incredible photoshopper who is, unfortunately, very mentally unwell)
Bob Gorrell (one of the laziest artists ever… why does he even do this job?)
Please post loads of edits, too. Like this one, which I don’t even remember the original of anymore:
