Cartoonists, including South Africa’s Zapiro, pay their own kind of homage to Margaret Thatcher.
Cartoonists take on the bellicose Kim Jong Un. The behavior of North Korea’s young leader provides plenty of fodder for satirists but Kim’s recent threats and the endless standoff between North and South Korea will take more than a one-liner to solve.
Cartoonists react to news that the winner of this year’s Nobel’s peace prize is…….drumroll…….. a big squabbling, multi-lingual entity: The European Union!?! So who’s going to Oslo to accept the award?
A clever take on ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ by Martin Sutovec of Slovakia. It’s a reference of course to Friday’s arrest of actor George Clooney, his father Nick Clooney and other activists on the grounds of the Sudan’s embassy in Washington. The idea was to call attention to the dire situation in Sudan but it’s questionable whether it called attention to anything other than George Clooney.
