Go, Read: Some Comics Stuff Related To Hurricane Sandy
Daryl Cagle is rounding up editorial cartoons here
and has a gallery of Jeff Parker cartoons from past hurricanes here
. It's sort of an interesting quandary for editorial cartoonists. It's what everyone is talking about, and there's no real way to irritate half of your readers because weather is usually non-political. On the other hand, you risk being amusing or humorous about something that ends up being a massive national tragedy.
I was trying to think of which cartoonists were in the hurricane's path, but the one I checked, Drew Sheneman
, hasn't switched over to hurricane commentary of any kind yet.
I would imagine that twitter is the place to follow a wide-ranging array of comics people's reaction to being caught in the storm, as best as they're able to update. There will probably be a lot of jokes made, and eating, and occasional distressing-to-bad news. I hope everyone stays safe and dry, in that order.
