Sad News: End of "Sutton Impact," The New Standard
- Two belated pieces of sad news
- Ward Sutton drew his last weekly "Sutton Impact" strip last week. According to his final cartoon, he's now busy being tortured at Gitmo. Two years ago I had the pleasure of interviewing Ward for In These Times following the release of his Sutton Impact book collection.
- The New Standard is shutting down tomorrow after 3 1/2 years. TNS was a great and supportive outlet for a lot of cool political cartoonists, including me, Matt Bors, Stephanie McMillan, Keith Knight and David Rees. The archives will remain but there will be no new content.
