Belated Congratulations To Steve Sack On His Pulitzer Win


Looking back with some horror this weekend, I noticed this site's initial post about Steve Sack of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune winning the 2013 Pulitzer in Editorial Cartooning was one of a few that did not scroll out last week due to me not being all that great at my job. I am deeply sorry not to report that in a timely fashion and also not to be one of the first comics-related sites to congratulate the veteran Sack. Here's how it went down in the newsroom; that must be a wonderful moment.

You can see a bunch of Sack's 2012 cartoons here in a Star-Tribune slideshow. All of the Pulitzer organizations own links to Sack can be found here.

Clay Bennett (Chattanooga Times Free Press) and Jeff Darcy (Cleveland Plain Dealer) were this year's finalists. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the first time I recall seeing Darcy receive major recognition like that.

Steve Sack has been at his current publication since 1981, which might at this point be a greater achievement, at least statistically, than winning any award out there. He took his current position after two years in Fort Wayne at the Journal-Gazette. Sack was a finalist for the Pulitzer in 2004, and is represented by the Cagle syndicate. He is a past winner of a National Headliner award and a Berryman.
