Wikipedia Publishes Cartoon Map

A wikipedia cartoon map has now been made, somewhat similar to my Cartoon Clash map (first published 6th Feb).

The wikipedia map is displayed on top of the newspaper list which is one of the best sources for information about the cartoon publications.

The page has thousands of editors for updates and verification, and the map is very detailed. Tough competition!

But please note: The map includes blurred publications (which I deliberately do not), and does not have legends to indicate censorship, violence, boycots and acts of war. In the world of Wikipedia, the ball looks calm and quiet. It only shows where the cartoons have been published in some form. Still, if you note discrepancies with my map, please let me know.

Update: Michelle Malkin has a Google map, however totally unreadable.
