Stanley McMurtry

The Mail on Sunday

For all its beneficial wonders, the digital age, according to the Washington Post, has risked creating casualties, such as cartooning. Cheering proof that this is not the case is The Mail on Sunday’s Mac (Stanley McMurtry). With his lovingly drawn sketches and snappy captions, he enriches readers’ souls every week in a way that very little else can – tickling the nation’s underbelly on topics ranging from politics to the Royal Family. More than 60 years on from his first published cartoon, Mac is the personification of the truism that the artist’s pen is mightier than the sword.
