Cartoon by Leonardo Aragao, from Sao Paulo, Brazil

Jurors in international contests love wordless cartoons about generals, flowers in gun barrels and people who suffer. Prisoners and victims of torture are always very popular.

The cartoon below won the comic book category at the recent cartoon competition in Recife. Entrants in this category were limited to three pages. This winner fits with international taste --a wordless cartoon depicting stark suffering and ridiculing the ruling elites.

We Americans prefer cute puppies in our cartoons.
