Roundup: Cartoonists of Color Sit-In
The Daily Cartoonist has a great roundup of yesterday’s Cartoonists of Color Sit-In, with links to participating strips and mainstream coverage of the event, as well as some interesting statistics related to the issues at the heart of the sit-in.
In case you missed our mention of the Cartoonists of Color Sit-In a while back, the event was organized as a protest of what participating cartoonists perceive as limits newspapers set on the number of comic strips with primarily non-white casts of characters. Each of the participating cartoonists used the same script for the day’s comic, written by Watch Your Head creator Cory Thomas.
Among other coverage of the event, Thomas appeared on lastnight’s CBS Evening News to discuss the event (links provided in Daily Cartoonist article).
