It’s that time of year again – the days are getting longer, the blossom’s on the tree, the birds are singing, and it’s time to enter the Walkleys.
There’s nothing more depressing than picking your favourite cartoon out of the year’s offerings. As most people who know a cartoonist is well aware, we’re all neurotic needy types who require constant love, attention and praise to stave off a constantly threatening spectacular tailspin into the deepest pit of misery and depression.
Anyway, stiff upper lip and all that, I’ve flicked through the year’s work and am feeling the usual waves of inadequacy and self-loathing this entails, so I’m enlisting your help. I’ve narrowed it down to a short list of 16 and if you feel like casting an eye over them and picking a favourite and telling me why (comment below, or email if you’re shy), that would be much appreciated. If you hate ’em all, feel free to keep it to yourself.
