Matt Bors Retires From Political Cartooning

Matt Bors is a cartoonist who has put out some of the most clever, incisive, cutting political commentary in comic form I've ever read. However, he is now done. He recently announced, “After 18 years and more than 1,600 political cartoons, I’ve decided to retire my weekly comic. This is a decision long in the making, one I’ve slowly walked myself up to over the years, and have recently decided is time to commit to. My last cartoon was two weeks ago.” He isn't done with comics and may very well comment on politics in future works, he just won't be dealing with weekly pressures and the grind to get a submission done on time. I understand if after all these years Bors wants some breathing room. I imagine whatever he does make now that he can focus on new projects will be excellent.
