‘OCCUPY WALL STREET’ & ELSEWHERE: The 9.9 Most Eye-Catching ‘Occupy’ Cartoons [updated]

You could just feel it weeks ago, couldn’t you? Gathering steam and amassing force as the elements aligned like some tempest of a weather event — starting from the actions on Wall Street yet also ready to traverse the globe for other hot-spots.

No, we refer not to “The Other 99%” protestors, but rather the reactions from the world’s editorial cartoonists, who are have been training their jaundiced eyes on the protests — and official reaction to it — as they prepped their parade of caricatured fat-cats (cue pinstriped three-pieces and stogies) and protestors (cue Phish T’s and bongos).

Now, as the “Occupy” protests go global, readers are treated to a wide array of comic responses — from the cartoonists who sympathize (or perhaps empathize) with the protestors to those artists who view financial sit-ins as folly.

So as hundreds of protests continue apace today, here are our 9.9 Most Eye-catching “Occupy” Cartoons:
