New voices, new formats in editorial cartooning

The last two years have seen a number of cartoonists turn their attention to politics (gee, we wonder why?). Two comic book artists, Pia Guerra and Mike Norton, are now doing regular editorial work, and both have books collecting their first wave of Trump cartoons. 

Norton's weekly web comic "Lil Donnie" is now in one volume, released last August, and Guerra's editorial cartoons will be available this month in the collection "Me the People." talked to both cartoonists about their 'radicalization' and, what else, drawing Trump.
