Eclipse time: Top ten cartoons of the week

On Monday, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, a momentary break from the bad news we’ve all be drowning in the past few months.

I like Pat Byrnes cartoon in particular, noting how nice a change it will be to know why we’re all plunged in darkness – at least those in the path of the eclipse, as the moon blocks the face of the sun.

Unfortunately, the eclipse will only last a few hours. Too bad it couldn’t stick around through the election.

Here are our top ten most reprinted cartoons of the week:
