Barron’s is a financial newsweekly. Since financial news is often either boring or depressing, some editor thought he might ameliorate these conditions by publishing funny financial cartoons, which turned out not to be an oxymoron.
National Lampoon Magazine began as a spin-off of the Harvard Lampoon and gained popularity in the 70's by featuring cutting-edge wit and boundary bashing humor. As the magazine evolved into a media franchise, it spun off household comedy films such as National Lampoon's Animal House and National Lampoon's Vacation. It also spun off some hilarious cartoons, which you can enjoy here. Today, National Lampoon is a collective for humor, empowering an array of creative perspectives with much more to come!
Esquire magazine began publishing cartoons upon its launch in 1933. More than 12,000 cartoons appeared from the point until it stopped publishing them for no reason at all in the late 1970s.

Every day editors miss the opportunity to publish great cartoons, often based purely on the economics of print.
