Cartoonists overseas

Cartoonists from the AAEC and NCS were part of good will tours overseas in October, from Mike Peters & Michael Ramirez with the USO in Iraq, to Daryl Cagle in the Middle East and North Africa.


The mission of the AAEC is to champion and defend editorial cartooning and free speech as essential to liberty in the United States and throughout the world.

The AAEC aims to be an international leader in support of the human, civil, and artistic rights of editorial cartoonists around the world, and to stand with other international groups in support of the profession.
