If you asked me that question 30 years ago, I would have said Jeff MacNelly without hesitation.
Not that I was exposed to many options in the pre-Internet dark ages, so my choice may have been driven by lack of knowledge. Nonetheless, MacNelly was a genius with the details, as you can see from these cartoons about IRS complexity and government shutdowns.
But what about today’s cartoonists?
Based on the number of cartoons I’ve shared, the easy answer would be either Michael Ramirez or Chuck Asay, but there are cartoons from other artists that are absolutely superb.
So I’m going to turn this question around.
Here are my favorite cartoons from various artists and you can answer the poll about which one you would rank highest.
In no particular order, the options are:
Michael Ramirez – This gem about Obamanomics is the most-viewed professional cartoon in the history of this blog, and his European lemming cartoon is great, as is his masterpiece on taxes in the Garden of Eden. But if I had to pick only one, it would be his Julia cartoon.
