Cartoonists on the world we live in from the GrauniadGuardian, including such obvious suspects as Nicholas "PBF" Gurewitch and Kate "Hark!" Beaton, as well as others you've probably seen before but don't recognize but should.

But for this, I might never have found Gabrielle Bell. Thank you!

So...Kate Beaton and a bunch of other people. Oh well, at least it had a new Kate Beaton!

That Kate comic is about our PM, no?

It just needs more Germain Greer telling her her arse looks big.

These are great. Love the Tom Gauld and Modern Toss ones. Luke Pearson one is depressing(ly accurate).

Nothing needs more Germaine Greer.

Seriously, a prominent feminist saying that crap about Australia's first female PM on national TV just makes me want to weep.

Hmmm, Kate Beaton does history and literature much better than politics

Bwithh: "Hmmm, Kate Beaton does history and literature much better than politics"

"Better than"? I disagree. Certainly, her usual four-panel strips are tighter and punchier than this 16-panel one. And this is less lighthearted and funny than her typical ones… because, y'know, this kind of pervasive sexism and misogyny isn't really lighthearted or funny.

I thought it was great, and quite timely.

For some reason, the Gabrielle Bell and Nicholas Gurewitch weren't actually in the Guardian magazine, so I missed them until seeing this post. Cheers
