50 Comics Positives For 2014: The Cartoonist Zunzi Was Involved With Occupy Central Movement

I'm all for cartoonists living according to their convictions as expressed on the page, and a stellar example of that occurred this year with recurring mentions of the cartoonist Zunzi in Occupy Central stories. The shape and direction of Hong Kong politics has been a primary issue for Zunzi going back a couple of decades, so his involvement makes sense. That a cartoonist can be near the core of a protest movement speaks to the power of his own convictions but also to the importance of cartoons in that culture as a method of ongoing social protest.
