Global Satire looks at world events through the lens of political cartoons, comedy, graphic journalism and wit (ha-ha and dark) in all its forms. Our focus is every corner of the globe. The idea is to explore what satirists around the world are poking fun at, or darkly laying bare. Our assumption is that a cartoon, joke, or wry comment can explain a vexing political issue as well (and often better) than any amount of punditry. Created by Carol Hills.
