Cartoonists Love The Titanic

“Titanic” has burst back into movie theaters sporting an $18 million dollar 3-D makeover. James Cameron, fresh from raking mud off the floor of the ocean, hopes to garner some greenbacks by tailing the re-release on the back of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.

Cartoonists are all about visual metaphors, and we love a good ship-sinking cartoon (with apologies to Costa Concordia captain Francesco Schettino). I dug through our archives and found these Titanic-themed cartoons that I’m excited to “re-release” to an entirely new audience. And it didn’t even cost me a dime…
