Lockdown Cartoons by Sunil Agarwal and Ian Baker

Has the Coronavirus Pandemic flattened the curve of your smile? Need some light relief from the Grim Reaper’s march? Bored with bizarre Prime Minister’s briefings? Don’t know if you should be wearing a mask or a frown?

Well, good news – cartoonists Sunil Agarwal and Ian Baker are determined to see the funny side of Covid-19 with their Lockdown Cartoons – available now in three volumes (so far… this one may run and run, unfortunately!)

Sunil and Ian have been poking fun at human foolishness for years with insightful and satirical observations in Reader’s Digest, National Lampoon and The Times of India. Now, they’ve shared their wit and wisdom so you can inject a shot of reality-checks into coronavirus chaos.

Lockdown Cartoons: The Cartoon Book for Surviving Quarantine, Boredom and Isolation, released last month, contains 100 snappily drawn gags that will help you view recent world events with a sacrilegious comic perspective. If confinement feels more like a punishment for your brain than a life-saving necessity, just turn to any page for an instant relief package.

With a foreword written by The Onion founder Scott Dikkers, Lockdown Cartoons is an irreverent, thought-provoking jab at our current quarantine conditions.

This first volume of pandemic-inspired cartoons was recently followed up with the release of Lockdown Cartoons 2: More Cartoons For Surviving Distancing, Working From Home & the Pandemic. Offering 100 more snappily drawn gags that will help you view recent world events with a sacrilegious comic perspective, take a break from global disruption for a healthy dose of the absurd.

But wait! I told you the boys were in a roll. Lockdown Cartoons 3 is already available, too – although at this point, only for Kindle. But if you like cheeky humour, wicked satire, and a humorous take on a crazy era, then why not dip into digital, too. After all, the only germs on your tablet are yours… oh, wait…

If confinement feels more like a punishment for your brain than a life-saving necessity, I think the samples here confirm you can turn to any page of these three books for an instant relief package.
