Badmash. South Asian American political commentary.
Naji Al-Ali (Handala). Popular & influential Palestinian political cartoonist assassinated in 1987.
Quino [Joaquín Salvador Lavado] (Mafalda). Argentine classic.
Rius [Eduardo del Rio] (Los Agachados, Los Supermachos, El Chahuistle, etc.). An all-time great practitioner of this craft, icon to a generation of Mexican & worldwide leftists, but still hard to track on Internet. We'd be grateful for any assistance here.
