Included are interviews with two Pulitzer Prize-winning creators: Ann Telnaes of CartoonArts International/New York Times Syndicate and Clay Bennett of The Christian Science Monitor and The Christian Science Monitor News Service. The latter interview was conducted by editorial cartoonist Jimmy Margulies of The Record in Hackensack, N.J., and King Features Syndicate.

Other articles in the journal cover the state of editorial cartooning, the controversial Muhammad cartoons, popular culture in cartoons, college cartooning, and many other topics.
