Malcolm Evans, award-winning former Herald cartoonist, is bloody good at what he does – insightful, well-drawn, concerned with the big issues, and always on the side of the underdog.

The resulting uproar from David Zwartz et al gave Herald the excuse to get rid of him. Here’s a youube video about his work, featuring many cartoons the Herald refused to publish:
