Dan Piraro wins 2010 NCS Cartoonist of the Year
The 2010 Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year has been awarded to Bizarro creator Dan Piraro. Dan’s panel Bizarro has been in syndication since 1986. He has been a nominee for the big prize several times before. In fact, when the list of nominees leaked this year, I asked Dan for a response. He responded:
I don’t put much stock in rumors, myself, but if this one is true, I think it is the 7th or 8th year in a row, so I’m running out of reactions. It’s always an honor to be nominated by one’s peers, of course, and both Pastis and Thompson are worthy adversaries, to be sure. I’m a fan of both of theirs (which isn’t always the case with fellow nominees – shhhh!) so I’ll be happy with whomever has to take the Big Ugly home and find a way to decorate around it. Trudeau still holds the record for most nominations without a win, somewhere around 13, so I’m in good company either way. : )
Contratulations to Dan for taking home the big prize tonight!
