Go, Read: Political Cartoons In Germany

This isn't the most insightful analysis as to the particulars of editorial cartooning in Germany, but if it's accurate there are some interesting broad strokes noted. I would say the eye-opener is that the author claims German editorial cartoons aren't in any significant way migrating to on-line media there, which could be a problem. He also paints a picture that is the opposite of that form's decline in North America by suggesting that the talent that wants to do this has dried up -- at least I still have the impression that talent outnumbers opportunity in North America. In general, though, where print is strong and vital, so are editorial cartoons. Where it's not, they're not.
