Your 2014 National Cartoonists Society Divisional Award Nominees


The National Cartoonists Society has announced the nominees for its ambitious divisional awards slate. There's a bunch here that's interesting, including a fairly extensive number of comics-making cartoonists if you add up the comic book, graphic novel, on-line short form and on-line long form categories. Also always of interest is the newspaper comic strips category, as that's the traditional precursor to Outstanding Cartoonist/Reuben Awards a few years down the line. That category is Isabella Bannerman, Teri Leibenson and Mark Tatulli this year; Tatulli is already a nominee this year for the general award, which is interesting to note in and of itself.

This is the first major award nomination I can recall for On The Ropes, last year's book by the writer James Vance and the artist Dan Burr. And it's always good to see Sergio nominated. Bob Eckstein, Mike Twohy, Mark Parisi and Dave Whamond join Tatulli as those that were nominated in two categories. I hope I didn't miss one there.

These awards are announced during a ceremony held over the annual meeting on Memorial Day weekend, a floating event held this year in San Diego. The Outstanding Cartoonist nominees, previously announced, are Wiley Miller, Stephan Pastis, Hilary Price and Tatulli.

Congratulations to all nominees.
