2012: The year in cartoons

A retrospective of the year that was, from Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Tony Auth:

It’s always a revelation to go through a year’s work. This year I was surprised by how many drawings I’d done on gun violence.

The year was also dominated by the election, of course. And, in retrospect, looking at the cartoons done during the surreal Republican primaries, the final result seems so fore-ordained — though it didn’t seem so at the time.
