Who's Your Cartoonist of the Year? Let the Voting Begin
Your nominees are in, the ballots have been counted and the accountants of PriceWaterhouseWatterson&SparkySchulz are prepared to announce the cartoonists who 'Riffs readers believe are most worthy of the Reuben -- aka cartooning's Oscar.
Here are the Ten Contenders for cartoonist-of-the-year -- please take a moment to vote for your fave.
The membership of the National Cartoonists Society will nominate their picks for the official Reuben in the months ahead. Till then, you never know which NCS members might pop in, out of curiosity, to see who the Official 'Riffs Reading Public is high on.
So vote away -- and if you'd like to campaign for your pick in the Comments field, the floor is yours.
RHYMES WITH ORANGE:
"Judge Parker" may be drawing panel after panel of attractive, oft-strapless women who have that certain whiff of danger, but for my money, the real subversive surprise comes in today's "Rhymes." What's this now? The formal kissing booth is, now -- as best as several of us presume -- a Wild West brothel, although one that seems to be more like Tombstone's best spa and salon. The real twist, though, is the Horatio Alger -- the man who wrote about dreaming big, yet who had his own dark sexual history. Not only the real twist, but real twisted.
Speaking of the eye-popping "JP," it's about time we figure out whom to cast as April Bower, easily our favorite former CIA linguist. (Meantime, I would cast Kristin Scott Thomas as Katherine, our ever-prominent brunette.)
Hmm. April? Jaime Pressley, perhaps? Or Elisabeth Shue? All suggestions now being accepted.
This is one of those "Tank" strips in which I curse myself for getting suckered into reading to the end. "Manny Being Manny" has become a sports-world cliche as, oh, "Boom Goes the Dynamite!" or "Leather, You're With Me!" Drat. Hoodwinked again.
I mention Spidey only because I can't get that image of Aunt May outta my head. Not because she looks pained, drawn and startled, but because she looks so much like someone else tied to the Spider-Man franchise.
Yep. Willem Dafoe.
