Culture with Rob Bound

A picture’s worth a thousand words, they say, so how do political and topical cartoonists drill down into the core of a news story, a scandal or a cover-up to reveal its essence? How do they transform the news into something worthy of a laugh? We sit down with cartoonist Nick Newman, whose work appears in ‘The Sunday Times’, ‘Private Eye’ and ‘The Spectator’, and we find out why ABC in Australia has decided to commission a comic that tells the story of Isis and why getting caught being funny in Lebanon can land you in the slammer.
