This is the End offers a witty and thought-provoking testimony of the Trump years. An editorial cartoon wrap-up of our dizzying world, swirling around an oxygen-sucking black hole named Donald Trump.
U.S. economist and Nobel Prize laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz writes in his foreword: «To many Americans, every day (with Trump) was anguish, and the only salve for our pain was Chappatte’s cartoons. (…) How else do you deal with something as grotesque, ridiculous, and unbelievable, but nonetheless real and consequential?»

Patrick Chappatte was a cartoonist for The New York Times until the newspaper terminated all editorial cartoons in June 2019. He now works for European media Der Spiegel, Le Canard Enchaîné, NZZ am Sonntag, Le Temps and contributes to Counterpoint.com, a newsletter featuring U.S. cartoonists from the left and the right.
Over the last 20 years, Chappatte has also been a pioneer of comics journalism, introducing the genre to the Times in 2016 with a series inside death row prisons. Chappatte is a three-time recipient of the Overseas Press Club of America’s best cartoon award.
