STAN LEE joins judges for Post's 'Next Great Cartoonist' contest
STAN LEE, the man who helped sire Spider-Man, Iron Man and scores of other legendary characters in the Marvel universe, has joined the team of celebrity judges for The Washington Post's "America's Next Great Cartoonist" contest.
Lee, "Doonesbury's" Garry Trudeau, "Family Tree's" Signe Wilkinson, "Candorville's" Darrin Bell and Jerry Scott ("Zits" and "Baby Blues") are among the top cartoonists who will critique the contest's 10 finalists. Also among the critiquers: Stephan Pastis ("Pearls Before Swine") and Richard Thompson ("Cul de Sac") -- both of whom, by the way, are up for "cartooning's Academy Award" at this weekend's Reubens ceremony in Jersey City.
Comic Riffs will publish a final list of the celebrity judges on Friday. A team of Washington Post editors (and yours truly) will cull the submissions to 10 finalists; once the finalists' work has been posted online, the winner will be determined by public voting.
Contest entries are still being accepted through June 4. For details, contest rules and to upload your entry, go to the "Next Great Cartoonist" Contest home page.
If you're entering: Good luck. And, as Stan Lee says in signing off to Comic Riffs: "Excelsior!"
