National Cartoonist Society nominations online

And our own Richard Thompson's name can be seen on the site. The very last name, it's true...

For the main Reuben, it's an odd group - two single panel cartoonists even though no single panels where nominated for an award, and a grand old man of MAD Magazine, Al Jaffee, who should win. There's a good article on Jaffee in "A Veteran MAD Man Remains in the Fold,"By NEIL GENZLINGER, New York Times March 30, 2008.

Hurray and congrats, Richard! Have you thought about who will score the music when the strip becomes a cartoon?

Thanks, Matt! I'm thinking kinda a They Might Be Giants/John Williams sound, but with a salsa feel and lots of contrabassoon. Any suggestions?
