A diverse group of cartoonists and comic book artists have contributed self portraits to a new exhibition at Orbital Comics in Great Newport Street, London. The show is free to view and runs until October 15. A list of participating cartoonists can be found on Orbital’s events page.

The Chicago Tribune took the unusual step of pulling Garry Trudeau’s Doonesbury strip this week, on the basis that it did not meet the paper’s fairness policy. The strip referred to allegations purportedly contained in an as-yet unreleased book about the former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The Tribune responds to readers’ comments on its decision here.

Yet more evidence that watching too many animated cartoons can be bad for you, as a new study suggests that exposure to fast-paced cartoons such as SpongeBob Squarepants hinders abstract thinking, short-term memory and impulse control in young children. ABC News has more.

Meanwhile, Kellogg’s has defended its use of cartoon characters on its breakfast cereal packaging, after the Cancer Council claimed that cartoons on cereal boxes help promote unhealthy foods to children.

But wait, there’s some good news regarding kids and cartoons. It turns out, according to the Daily Telegraph, that Scooby-Doo is the healthiest cartoon. Zoinks!
