AQUAMAN DOWN: The 10 Best BP Spill Cartoons [UPDATED]


Aquaman was among the first casualties, tragically washing up weeks ago. And as the BP oil spill has worn on -- long uncapped, uncontained and un-"killed," top or otherwise -- visual satirists have co-opted numerous other cartoon characters.

Given the need to laugh for a moment in the face of maddening tragedy -- humor as a defiantly uncapped release -- we should have known such cartoons would continue to spill onto our pages and screens.

As such, Comic Riffs asked readers this week to share their favorite cartoons and other illustrations about the spill in the Gulf. Here's a sampling of some faves. We'll dub these The 10 Best BP Spill Cartoons -- at least so far. More swell ones are sure to bubble up.
