I'm so glad to see Jaffee nominated! And two panel cartoonists to boot.

No strips this year, huh?

Mike Lynch said...

Strips are nominated, yes.

At this time all of the nominees, except for two categories (Advertising Illustration and Newspaper Panels), have been announced.

Boy, I'm sure glad I don't have to decide which of those three should get the Outstanding Cartoonist award. They're all very funny and good at drawing, too!
