Citing political Cartoons

There isn’t an example of citing a cartoon in the APA, but here are some ways to approach it:

If found in an online periodical (ex., newspaper) or periodical database:

Cite as you would a periodical article, but include a description [Cartoon] after the title of the cartoon (if there is one). If the cartoon does not have a title then include [Cartoon] after the date.

If retrieved through an online archive, such Herblock's History exhibition through the Library of Congress, indicate the name of the archive.
