Or so says the National Review: https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/09/editorial-cartooning-decline-serena-williams-controversy/
This is, what, the 11th or 12th time since 1954 that editorial cartooning has been declared dead? We're like the Doctor Who of cartooning or something.
So... if we're dead — LET'S HAVE A WAKE!!!
Tonight the 62nd Annual Convention of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists kicks off with a private reception at the California Museum. The 2018 convention, running Sept. 20-22, will see three days of cartoonists, satirists and journalists from across the US, Canada and Down Under hobnobbing, panelling and pub crawling.

There will also be two events open to the public: A talk by Atlantic reporter McKay Coppins on Friday night, and a "Cartoonist Cage Match" on Saturday afternoon. The "sketchy battle royale" is sponsored by The Sacramento Bee and will include draw-offs by some of the best cartoonists working today. Check @AAEC_Cartoonist for details.
