topic suggested by John Platt; thanks, John

The fun thing about this topic for me is that everyone has a definition of what this kind of cartoonist is like and who fits that category. I could make a million such lists and never would think of Barron Storey as an artist establishing himself. But to each his own. Even in my own case, as this list was posted about a year ago there are now two cartoonists on my five I would never consider for inclusion right now because I feel they've more than arrived.
