New cartoon: Punching properly

Gary Trudeau — who, as I note in my Canadian Urban Legends FAQ, is of no relation to the Canadian political dynasty — has recently gone around saying that cartoonists should remember to “punch up” not “down” with their silly drawings. He said this in the context of the Charlie Hebdo murders, which while of course terrible etc. etc., also targeted cartoonists who had a habit of being mean to the underclass. Good cartoonists are only mean to the powerful and fortunate.

I drew a helpful guide for Medium.
