Behind the Lines 2020: The year in political cartoons

2020’s disruption and turmoil got more close and personal than most of us ever imagined.

From the bushfire summer to the global pandemic, the nation’s political cartoonists had plenty to work with as they mapped the nation’s politics and our reaction, illuminating our shock and fears.

Hawaiian shirts and burnt trees gave way to masks and spiky balls.

With most of us still wondering ‘what the pup’ just happened, the brand-new iteration of Behind the Lines: The year in political cartoons will help us make sense of the dog’s breakfast that was 2020.

Behind the Lines 2020 presents the best political cartoons from this dog of a year, including digital cartoons for the first time.

When have we needed our cartoonists so much? Don’t miss it.
