Hindsight is always 2020. In this case, foresight is 2020.
Who told him starting a war with Iran would be a good idea?
Maybe that Kim’’s New Year’s present?
There are more than one fuse that can be lit in the world.
Mother Earth won’t miss us. And in ten thousand years you’ll have to dig really deep to find any trace of us.
Trump is lighting the fuse in the Middle East.
Not to worry.. trump knows how to fix that scuffle on the other side.. said so during his campaign and a zillion times since.. And with the Evangelist and thus God on his side.. Nothing to worry about.
Something makes me feel that Jim M. is a little down in the dumps.
Cheer up, Bunky. There isn’t much we can do to change things.
Looks like the Armageddon (and rapture to follow) that so many are looking for. We have representatives in the US government that actually want this!!
I understand that this is Mr. Morin’s last political cartoon. Thank you for your insights, sir, and best of luck. Enjoy your painting.
I dont like trump’s cheating, lieing, stealing and belittling good people. However I 110 % fully support killin the murderous and hateful soleimanic! My only regret is that I didn’t get to pull the trigger myself! You say I spelled his name wrong! I dont think so!

Come on Jim! Give it a rest, let’s have some new toons buddy!!!
“Dear Twitter followers, after a 43 year career of drawing edit cartoons I’ve decided to call it quits & pursue my oil painting. This has been my passion for decades & I’m thrilled to put all my energies into it. Thank you for being such a super audience. Keep the faith.”
Took this from his Twitter page.
Hej Jim, time to color the GOP elephant the Right color…pure White.
change your comic!
JIM! Where for art thou?!…
Learned yesterday (23 January 2020) from Clay Jones that Morin’s stepping away from the drawing board to paint and perhaps occasionally make a graphic comment.
I’ll certainly miss his cartoons. Pointed, unsparing, and humorously drawn. Here’s wishing him lots of joy and dough in his endeavors.
Isn’t it time for a new one?
Go comics “editors” don’t read their own product. Shameful
Thanks, Mr. Morin, for all the past excellent art and commentary. You will be missed…ALL the BEST !
are you back from vacation yet jim morin? time to change your editorial.
still…………? New one anytime now!!!!
Why haven’t we gotten any more drawings since January 1st?
Only two months ago. Hard worker here.
Enjoy your retirement, I will miss you!
We are in MARCH now.
What happened to Jim Morin? It has been more then two months since a new cartoon!
No more new cartoons. Mr.Morin has retired. He has been an political cartoonist for almost 45 years, I think he has earned some rest!
It is DISTURBING how accurate this was, to the point we can tell less than three months in.
What a way to leave the game.
So Jim, have you retired or what?
when is this jan 01 going to change or is it? Something happen to Morin???
Looks like the someone or something already did!
Jim, I know you are retired, but your 1/1/2020 cartoon was prophetic in so many ways. May you be safe. thanks for sharing this wisdom. Sincerely, “That Lady in Florida”
Gocomics, don’t you think it’s time to take this one off? He retired. There won’t be any new ones.
Why is this guy still on the list?
Hit the nail on the head, didn’t he. Sorry he retired.
Are we ever going to have a new one from Jim Morin?
I took another look at this today, May 1, 2020. This guy’s last cartoon makes him look like the all-time Karnack the Magnificent.
Don’t you think it’s time for a new cartoon now?
I have that record…
Seems he has retiredhttp://bado-badosblog.blogspot.com/2020/01/jim-morin-retires.html
This cartoon jinxed us.
8/8/2020— Unknowingly prophetic.
I am sorry Mr. Morin hasn’t given us any more cartons since January 1. But this one cartoon is prescient, summing up the year far too well. How did you know?
That fuse needs to be right over the Arctic, check out how low the ice cover is on Climate Reanalyzer. Cross your fingers!
But, but I’m just sure that 2021 will be so, so much better. Wait, what? There seems to be a pattern unfolding?
Remember January 1, when all we had to worry about was Trump starting a war with Iran to distract from the impeachment? We were so cute.
I don’t think anyone knew just how prophetic this cartoon was when it was published in January.May 2021 be better.
The world is reeling from the pandemic.
The US now has had over 11 MILLION cases of Covid, and nearly a quarter of a million deaths. Economy shot, staggering unemployment, anti mask/anti vaccine idiots on the right. And the administration shrugs its shoulders.
The election is over, and the petulant toddler is throwing his food from his high chair, screaming that he won the election. Baseless accusations of fraud, refusal to transition peacefully, no hope of working with the new administration.
The militant right has crawled out from its dark hidey holes of hatred, and is threatening a civil war.
Jim Morin wasn’t even close with this cartoon.
Did Morin have any idea how prophetic he was? Since he hasn’t posted anything since then, I’m guessing he managed to hitch a ride off this planet with the dolphins.
No need to update the year
Sad that this one still applies today.
Hey Jim don’t you think it’s high time for a new comic??
Still relevant 13 months later. Saw a strip a couple of days ago where a guy came out of a coma after a year. He said the last thing he remembered was the Chiefs were in the Super Bowl, Trump was being impeached, and a virus had broken out. The nurse told him to go back to sleep. Wonder why the editors don’t remove inactive strips?
Just not real …. the world and people will be hear much longer than any of us will live.
GoComics has cut many a good comic this past year, and this one hasn’t been updated in over a year. I hope Mr. Morin isn’t still being paid by GoComics.
