Merry Impeachment Day, everyone!

And a Happy Impeachment Day to all. The Daily Cartoonist has been looking back at how editorial cartoonists took on previous targets of impeachment, and the parallels between Nixon, Clinton and Trump. First up: the phenomenal Jules Feiffer.

How did editorial cartoonists see previous violators of the Constitution? ComicDC’s Mike Rhode looks back at Paul Conrad’s contempt for Nixon—and the time the cartoonist forgot to include the punchline in his Nixon obit cartoon.

More to come?
