Nevarforgetathon, Part MMMDCL: The Funnies

"Imagine a day where most newspaper comics are Funky Winkerbean. That’s what’s happening this Sunday." Tomorrow, the funnies will be anything but as 93 US newspaper comic strips will be devoted to remembrances of 9-11. Profound or profane?

"Terror Widows''

"Terror Widows'' An editorial cartoon that ridicules widows of World Trade Center victims as greedy and shallow publicity hounds drew instant outrage last night from the grieving survivors. One widow was shown with a pile of cash in her lap and telling a reporter, 'I keep waiting for Kevin to come home, but I know he never will. Fortunately, the $3.2 million I collected from the Red Cross keeps me warm at night.' The NYTimes pulled the strip from its Website.

Lick the light.

Lick the light. While the professionals seem to have moved on, the political and social consequences of 9.11 are still being explored by at least one web-based political cartoonist (a few favorites). Know any others?

Osama Bart Laden

Osama Bart Laden This is from the Simpsons Folder, simply the best of its kind, in my opinion, and home of my favorite wallpaper. The Bert Is Evil post has inspired me: What I'd like to see are your links to any and all the other post 9/11 cartoons, jpegs, gifs and so forth.

The Tragedy in Cartoons.

The Tragedy in Cartoons. One of the more interesting effects of a national tragedy is that it always somehow causes the nation's editorial cartoonists to suffer massive, collective brain damage. Across the country, they rush to their easels and whip up cheesy, embarrassing caricatures of Uncle Sam crying. Or the Founding Fathers crying. Or - in this case - a comparison to Pearl Harbor. Or - if your local cartoonist is feeling particularly creative - the always crowd-pleasing weeping Statue of Liberty. As Cagle notes, "Fully half the nation's cartoonists drew the same cartoon on the same day." Including Cagle himself. A tragedy in cartoons indeed. Some psychiatrist really ought to study this phenomenon.

WTC Editorial cartoons

WTC Editorial cartoons I don't know if they trivialize or symbolize, but they're often part of the artifacts we use to remember events like this.
