Jakob Martin Strid (born 1972) is a Danish cartoonist, who is known throughout Denmark for his successful series Strid in the Danish newspaper Politiken.

Before his mainstream success he drew for the socialist paper Socialisten; both runs consisted mostly of satire on political events. He is decidedly on the political left, but every public figure is a target. His Strid series in Politiken featured (mostly) the artist himself (as his sobriquet Strid) drawing, inviting guests and wandering off into intentionally far-fetched plots. There was much controversy around the strip when it ran in Politiken as he expressed sympathy with the Rote Armee Fraktion.[1]

He has recently published several children's books.

In 2012, Strid received the Danish Crown Prince Couple's Culture Prize[2]
