Go, Read: New Yorker On Egypt's Political Cartooning Culture


An article about Egypt's political cartoon culture right now is here. As you might guess, it's kind of chaotic. Some papers have been closed down entirely, others are re-purposing cartoons and Facebook haunts everything. There is a pretty thriving editorial cartoon culture in that entire region of the planet -- that's something that made processing the Danish Cartoons Crisis difficult, incidentally, because a lot of western media pretended that entire countries were unfamiliar with cartooning.
