“I’m Quitting Political Cartooning,” the alt-weekly cartoonist and Nib publisher recently announced.
“After 18 years and more than 1,600 political cartoons, I’ve decided to retire my weekly comic,” wrote the cartoonist on Medium, a site Bors has had a love/hate relationship with over the years. “This is a decision long in the making, one I’ve slowly walked myself up to over the years, and have recently decided is time to commit to. My last cartoon was two weeks ago.”
“I will continue to run The Nib in an almost full time capacity, publishing and editing our magazine and daily comics, while making some space in my life for other kinds of comics that I’m excited about but have never had the time to fully pursue.”
