Four Horsemen of Hysteria

Today was another Sunday in 1962, so here is a Kelly editorial cartoon from the late 1940s in the New York Star. Many of Kelly's editorial cartoons tend to be timeless, not tied to a particular event, but to the human condition. Bless his heart, this one is still relevant today.

Blessings to you on MLK day!


  1. This may be the grimmest looking Kelly drawing I have ever seen! The horse in the front means business. Generally I don't really care for using graphite for greytones (I'm guessing that's what Kelly did here), but in this case it works. Looks rough all around.

  2. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
