Well, let me be the first (on the blog) to congratulate you guys. You deserve every bit of it.
It's good to see quality talent get the recognition it deserves. I consider you guys the Hank Rearden & Ellis Wyatt of political cartoons!
Woo-hoo!!! Serious congratulations, guys!
Now if we can just get you into the Richmond Times-Dispatch....
Indeed, it is quite satisfying to see success come to those who have earned it. Congrats John and Allen!
Way to go, John & Allen. We're all rootin' for ya.
I think I can speak for all those who visit your pages that we wish we could get you syndication and wider exposure. However, it looks like, in the best Objectivist tradition, you'll have to do it yourselves...
Okay, okay, I know y'all are feeling a little giddy at the moment, but you referred to the NAVAL War College as the NAVEL War College - sounds like something a little too new-agey for our military! ;-)
Congrats on the syndication!
Congratulations! I'm sure you'll only go up from here!
Guys, aside from the Dilbert website, the only other website I go to almost daily is yours. So I want to say congratulations for your recent breakthroughs in the print media, because it's enormously hopeful to me that the foot is at least in the door. There's nothing like the feeling of hard work paying off.
Hey, do me a favor. You know, you'd have cartoons glossed in Korean to go with your cartoons glossed in Farsi if you jumped down Kim Jong Il's throat more often. His atrocities out-Irans Iran, and you'd offend appeasement-minded "sunshine" Koreans. Yes, I know, after the election, but can't I dream a little? It would be nice to see you in the Chosun Ilbo, South Korea's number one newspaper.
That's wonderful, guys - you deserve it thoroughly. You have a great sense of humor and draw very well, and of course your point of view is a breath of very fresh air in the utterly stale world of political cartooning.
biff -- Thanks for the heads-up on the typo. I even told myself to be careful with that one. A lot of good that did...
Congratulations. You are wonderfully gifted artists and it is fabulous that others are finally seeing it and their readers will be seeing that too.
[Dark, malevolent laughter]
The Plan proceeds apace. Our diabolical cartoonist front has achieved a major victory.
We'll know we've won when you are on the Op-Ed page of the NYT and the Post :-P
Seriously, congratulations, guys. Hard work and sanity have paid off. May you have many more victories.
A very hearty congratulations to you guys. I am very excited that an objective viewpoint is beginning to receive national notice. Very excited! Thanks for the great news!
Congratulations gentlemen. I'm absolutely thrilled for you. You both richly deserve it (and deserve to be rich ... hopefully, this is a step in that direction).
I'm a stringer for a local paper that is part of a consortium of local newpapers around the Houston area. I've sent a recommendation to the editor of the paper I write for, with a link to your website. :)
It would be nice to see your work on weekly basis locally.
Best to you both!
A little over a decade ago, I was a sr. IT exec with the Economist Group - focusing a lot on a part of the organization that published the Journal of Commerce newspaper. Investor's Business Daily was a key competitor and one that had a lot of readership and respect in the industry.
It's a superb kudo to Cox & Forkum to get a regular piece in IBD, and to get the well deserved recognition in a major daily newspaper. If only they could get the same recognition in the LA Daily News - it would be easier to read / tolerate.
Congratulations on your great achievement! You have excellent cartoons in every respect, especially philosophically.
Keep up the good work!
Excellent! I'd break open a bottle of champagne in celebration...but I'll just have to settle for rum and limeade and a good dose of imagination instead... ;-)
This couldn't happen to a more deserving couple of fellas!
Congratulations! You've earned it.
Congratulations!!! Well done, and well deserved.
This is just fantastic, I'm so glad for you guys! No one deserves it more than you, and I know you'll spread the good word. Thanks for making the world a funnier place.
Big congrats to you! May your talent take you to new heights!
Watch out Rall, Trudeau, and Moore.
Justice is a'coming!
Well done C&F. Well done.
I never ever thought I'd see the sun rise after midnight.
But this is what has happened.
Congratulations, Allen and John!!!!
May your fortunes continue to rise and rise.
Congratulations! Well deserved and about bloody time.
I think Ayo meant to say _at_ midnight. :-)
Thank you both very, very much for your unflagging inspiration.
The making of history is a rare sight indeed for any man; this is a landmark event.
I had no idea you guys were not already nationally syndicated. Even putting politics aside, your work is easily equal to or superior to everything out there. Include politics in the analysis, and you blow everyone away.
Congratulations. This is just the start.
Unbounded glee, Guys!
Your clean, declarative artwork is matched by your incisive choice of subject matter, relevance and graphic symbolism!
(I've sent samples of MY lineart, so you know I know whereof I speak. No smoke-blowing here...)
Good on yez, Gentlemen! More! Better! Upward and onward!
Congrats! and keep up the good work. Stay after the mainstream press, you deserve syndication.
Magnificent! It's wonderful that someone with money in their pockets recognizes your brilliance.
Thanks for all the past work and keep it flying!
Congratulations Allen and John!
Great news. It is well deserved and long overdue...
We are proud of you guys - onward and upward from here.
- Your friends at Those Shirts...
Excellent news! I'm happy to have bought three of your books, before you hit the big time and raise the price.
Congratulations, I'm very happy for you. A well deserved 'overnight success' after how many years?
Congrats, guys! May this be just the beginning.
Way to go guys - keep up the excellent work, and more success to come.
I was glad to see your work at Libertad Digital, an now I am gladder to know that they are not the only ones purchasing it. Congratulations!
Allen & John:
Congratulations! I subscribed to the Investor's Business Daily during my time (2000 - 2002) in Ohio. It's a great newspaper. Next step is your gallery show! :)
All the Best,
Martin Lindeskog - American in spirit.
BTW, an idea, if you're not already doing it: Log your Web traffic and use your daily visit numbers to help convince papers/syndicates of your popularity. (That's how the NY Sun got started from smartertimes.com.)
You're living proof that blogging can pay real dividends! My hat's off to you two.
That's absolutely wonderful, guys. Your blog is one of two that I recommend to my friends, and one of the few policartoons I site when debating online.
I think a good mazel doesn't even begin to sum it up, but a good mazel nonetheless. Keep up the excellent work! :-D
Most deserved and I have no doubt only the beginning .. You guys are the BEST
Congratulations guys! This is just the beginning. You're gonna be all over the print media now. I'm so happy for you!
Congratulations from Brazil! You guys are great!
Kudos, Allen & John!!! Congratulations, and well done. Splendid. Just keep doing what you're doing. I'm sending a note separately regarding a line of pursuit we might try again, given this new news....
Congrats and best wishes for continued success!
The net wouldn't be the same without you.
Absolutely fantastic news! Congratulations, it's well earned and deserved. Best of luck!
John and I really appreciate the kudos, everyone. We spend so much time focused on negative issues with the cartoons, we're happy to finally pass along some good news.
Over two years ago we approached a number of papers about publishing our cartoons, including IBD. We've since started this blog, and I think keeping our work out there is slowly paying off. Our hope is that these latest opportunities will lead to still more. We'll see.
Regardless, it's satisfying to know that we have so many readers who are celebrating along with us. Thanks to you all.
This is totally bitchin' guys... I, for one, am totally stoked... Woo Hoo!!
JP from SoCal....
Excellent news! About damned time, I'd say.
Very cool fellers... joining the (many, many) others in offering congrats...
A regular reader...
Not since Maudlin
That's what I've got to say at:
No political/editorial cartoon is anywhere close to you guys.
I believe this is most definately an occasion for an Official Declaration of W00t!(TM)
And so: W00t!
"Dude, you so totally ROCK!! Now gimme some fin ::slap::! Noggin ::klunk::! Duuuuuude!"
Congrats! You guys are brilliant.
Congratulations! Can't wait for the syndication of your cartoons that will surely follow after successes like these. It's only a matter of time now (along with continuing to put out high-quality work, but that's a given with you guys).
Congrats, you guy's ROCK!
Congratulations, y'all! You've earned it!
You forgot to mention that you get frequently publish in The Battalion. I have saved all the newspapers you were published in and plan to send them at the end of the summer. Keep up the good work!
It's about time dammit!
Way to go Guys! Congratulations!
And Doonesbury gets unceremoniuosly dumped as well.
I'm very happy for you both, spots well earned- Keep it up!
Congratulations! You really deserve it!
I'm one of the Spanish readers of Libertad Digital, and every day I look forward to see if I can read another excellent cartoon from you.
Just keep up the good work!
Congrats on getting the recognition. I've already gotten some of my friends to buy your book and everyone I introduce you folks to always asks "why can't I read them in the paper ?". Even my liberal friends get a chuckle or two. Maybe you'll start to get into those "Best Political Cartoons" books that are put out every year......
You guys are honestly one of the best political cartoons I have seen in a very long time. The effort you've put into this project is clear to everyone.
Congratulations on the achievement, and good luck in the future. I see biger things ahead for Cox and Forkum.
Congrats! You guys do a wonderful job!
Yay for you guys! I tell everyone I know about your site. You deserver every bit of success you achieve!
Congratulations!! you guys deserve to be published in as many places as possible.
All the best
Congrats guys! You deserve every opportunity you get. Keep up the great work!
I have seen your cartoons on www.boortz.com.
Hurrah for John Cox & Allen Forkum!
Your work and your success are inspirations.
Great breakthrough guys. There's only wider syndication in your future. There's nothing like you.
You fellas really are "the top" in the cartoon game! I can't wait to see what you do with "The Ketchup Queen's" handling of "incivility." Marie Antoinette, your worthy successor has arisen!
Jeez. Well done, you guys. Richly deserved. I've just discovered you exist and now this happens. Wish I could take the credit!
Congratulations from one of the readers of LibertadDigital.
Way to go, guys! Excellent work!
Kudos. Keep up the great stuff.
Congratulations! The success of the revolution is assured.
Congratulations to two of the most perceptive and "right on" cartoonists in America. Triple thumbs up for Cox and Forkum!
Yee Haw! Congrats - VERY well deserved! The first step in world domination!
Bravo, guys! You rock! Keep up the great work.
Congratulations, it was well earned.
Good job. With this you can bet that getting syndicated will be much easier.
