General Wojciech Jaruzelski, the last Communist leader of Poland, died on Sunday -- and there is some controversy over whether to bury him in Powazki Cemetery with other Polish soldiers. That's the plan, although there will be no state funeral for him.
Since we are coming up on the 25th anniversary of the fall of Communism in Central Europe later this year, here are a couple of the cartoons I drew about General Jaruzelski in the 1980's.
Back when these early cartoons were drawn, I had a usually unfortunate tendency to draw stiff, flat bodies -- which was, in Jaruzelski's case, the perfect way to draw him. Ever rigid and unyielding, he held himself as if he were posing for his own statue.
