WIKILEAKS: The most eye-catching cartoons yet leaked...

By Michael Cavna


Vladimir Putin as a bare-chested Batman! Gaddafi playing doctor with his nurse! And Uncle Sam going mano a mano with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange!

And that's just from those upstart Taiwanese animators at NMA.tv (who are fresh off their amusing "feud" with Conan O'Brien).

Like Assange to classified documents, the world's cartoonists are flocking to the insta-fodder that is WikiLeaks's latest disclosures. As the humor ranges from the silly to the seriously satirical, here are the most eye-catching cartoons to leak forth so far.

(And we'll continue to update this sampling because, well: Somebody's bound to depict Assange as a pickup basketball player, throwing an errant elbow to Uncle Sam...)
