Is the Herald’s Jerry Holbert Clipping the Globe’s Dan Wasserman?

August 13, 2013

First off, let’s stipulate – as they say on Law & Order – that Boston is lucky to be not only a Two-Daily Town, but also a Two-Editorial-Cartoonist Town.

And we have a couple of really good ones – Jerry Holbert at the Boston Herald and Dan Wasserman at the Boston Globe.

Both of whom, as the hardreading staff noted recently, have waded into the Anthony Weiner rumpus down in the Big Town.

In Thursday’s editions, the two coincidentally visited Six Flags Over Anthony Weiner.

Now comes Holbert’s cartoon in yesterday’s Herald:

To be clear: We’re not accusing anyone of anything.

We’re just sayin’.


Boston Editorial Cartoonists Enter WeinerWorld

July 26, 2013

Boston is blessed not only with two daily newspapers, but with two very talented editorial cartoonists: Dan Wasserman at the Boston Globe, and Jerry Holbert at the Boston Herald.

(You can count on two hands the number of daily newspapers nationally that employ editorial cartoonists. And yes, technically Wasserman may be a syndicated cartoonist rather than a Globe staffer, but his drawings still have a Globe identity.)

In Thursday’s editions, the two coincidentally visited Six Flags Over Anthony Weiner.

Smart, as usual.
