Kieron Dywer, Political Cartoonist

Kieron Dwyer is no stranger to controversy. The former Avengers and Captain America artist once go into it with Starbucks over a parody cover for his indie comic LCD. Dwyer did a version of the Mermaid logo with the words 'Consumer Whore' and dollar signs on her crown. This was back in 1999 / 2000 and became a big free speech issue as Starbucks tried to sue him. A lawyer involved in the case compared the way the corporation was going after the artist as 'carpet bombing an ant hill'.

Dwyer is popping up again on social media, taking some shots on the new administration and the hot button topics of the day. And he seems to be keeping a pretty good pace with the news as it happens. And these are all from just the last week. Could he be following in the footsteps of Thomas Nast?
