More On Cartooning And Iran Unrest


* it looks like we may be due for another round of cartoon commentary on political unrest in Iran as the comic strips with political commentary components finally see their schedules catch up to the news. Here's Doonesbury.

* I can't imagine this is authorized -- although the sympathy is there so it might be -- but here's a remixed version of some of Persepolis with an eye on recent events.

* exiled Iranian cartoonist Nikahang Kowsar is profiled by The Star; Kowsar lives in Canada.

* Stephff explains a recent cartoon on Neda Soltan by asserting that all cartoons needn't be funny, and that if you give the cartoonist enough credit to not be saying the monstrous thing, another meaning may make itself known.
