You are reading our first newsletter of the new year. We welcome new US president Joe Biden as we hope to say goodbye to the corona pandemic soon (although it doesn't look like it at the moment).  So, whether you are in lockdown or not, we are here to bring you some diversion with our cartoons!

A turbulent month in the US

This was most notably the month the world said farewell to Donald Trump and welcomed Joe Biden. As you would expect most of our cartoons have been about this transition of power, and we created several collections on the final month of the Trump era.

First, there was the invasion of the Capitol, cartoon collection here.

Then there was the news that Trump was banned from Twitter. See the cartoon collection here.

And after the transition of power (collection here) it is now time for a fresh start. We sincerely hope Trump will feature a lot less in cartoons from now on.

Finishing our LSE Africa project

This month, we are finishing our comics journalism project about public authority in Africa. In the past months, we worked with the Centre of Public Authority and International Development (CPAID) of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) to translate research in various African countries into compelling visual narratives. We already published two comics, one on vigilante justice in Uganda and one on human rights abuses by rangers of Virunga National Park in DRC.

In the coming weeks, we'll publish four more comics, starting this Wednesday with A poisoning in Palabek, a harrowing tale about witchcraft in Palabek refugee camp in Uganda, where an old woman is accused of poisoning a young woman.
