Tom Richmond Wins Reuben; NCS Divisional Awards Named

image

The National Cartoonists Society has named the winners of its awards including Tom Richmond as its Outstanding Cartoonist Of The Year. Richmond is a popular caricaturist and cartoonist who is currently a mainstay and driving talent at MAD; his work can be explored in an elaborate web site located here. Ben Katchor's Cardboard Valise and JH Williams III's work on Batwoman won the graphic novels and comic book categories, Edward Sorel won magazine illustration and Glenn McCoy won two awards including comic strip. Jon Rosenberg won the on-line comics category -- it's always fascinating to see the very traditional NCS interact in any way they might interact with webcomics culture.

In addition to these formal, voted-upon awards, this weekend also saw two honoraries conferred: Steve McGarry was the recipient of the Silver T-Square for his service to the organization while proud comic book veteran Stan Goldberg won the NCS Gold Key Award.
