In a take off of Rudolf Zellinger's ascent of man in the 1960s, Chicago Tribune cartoonist Michael Ramirez created a very apt portrayal of ISIS.

During WW2 one person who really got under Her Shikelgrueber's skin was a NZ born Cartoonist David Low whose creative genius revealed to Brits how to view the Nazi leadership with his immortal creations . His creations it is rumoured, had Low  on lists of UK citizens to be rounded up after Operation Sea Lion by conquering German invaders, as undesirables.

One thing sure to earn the ire of thin skinned Islamist clerics is to take the micky in any way.
In the light of the cowardly response with the Charlie Hebdo slaughter, the Iconic Chicago Toilet paper producer has removed the offensive image to a few Muslim leaders who didn't even have the nous to differentiate Islam from ISIS.

A sample of Low from late in the war as Europe was being  liberated.
