Newspaper Cartoonists Observe 9/11 Anniversary

The writers and artists of America’s newspaper “funnies” accepted the seemingly daunting challenge of observing this past Sunday the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. King Features Syndicate, Creators Syndicate, Tribune Media Services, Universal Press Syndicate and Washington Post Writers Group organized the effort, which includes nearly 100 strips whose aim was to offer “solidarity, solace and sympathy,” according to King Features’ Brendan Burford, who spoke to The Los Angeles Times.

Thanks to the prodigious list-making of The Comics Reporter, we’ve been able to read the majority of the 9/11 remembrance strips, all of which express the central themes of the endeavor with the level of sincerity the occasion demands. Those who managed to do so while maintaining their strips’ or characters’ traditional idioms impressed us the most, and you can see a selection after the cut.

As previously reported, King Features has partnered with museums including The Newseum, The Cartoon Art Museum, The Toonseum, The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (MoCCA) and The Society of Illustrators to display selected works in themed exhibits.
