Mikhaela E. Reade is one of my favorite political cartoonists. For the past eight years she has blogged weekly cartoons eviscerating the stupid, racist, sexist, homophobic, right-wing, trickle-down Reaganomics bullshit that goes on in the world. She’s been published in newspapers, magazines, and online, has won awards and was even elected Vice-President of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists.
She’s currently on hiatus, simplifying her life and taking time to regroup. Oh, and she and her husband have just had the most adorable little girl, born last month. As my mother says, life moves in phases, and you focus on different things at different times. We want to wish Mikhaela, Masheka, and Baby Z well.
Meantime, here are some excellent Mikhaela comics for you to enjoy. And please consider buying her book, as that would certainly help them with baby expenses.

Thanks for the comics, Mikhaela. We look forward to hearing from you again!
