So, along comes Markos offering to create a new comics section, to set a new example for the political blogosphere, if not the entire internet: Comics are a valuable part of the mix, comics are popular, comics are worth paying for. How could I possibly say no?
So far, the experiment has worked out better than I could have possibly imagined. In eight months we've built up an amazing roster of contributors, and—I hope—given you all one more reason to come back and check in each day. And this is just the start! If Markos meets his funding goals, I'll be able to expand the comics section further. If I have any say over this, we'll eventually feature two or three different cartoons a day. I have plans, oh yes. But they depend on you all at the moment. If you agree that political cartooning is an art form worth supporting, then please consider donating to the fund drive, or better yet subscribing. And tell them you're doing it for the cartoons!
