Reuben Nominations

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

The parents have headed off and I’m catching up on news in the comics world, including this year’s Reuben nominations. I agree wholeheartedly with good friend, Paul Gilligan’s protestations at the nomination of Non Sequitur in the comic strip category. It is a comic panel (and apparently was entered in this category too – a little below the belt) and as such, does  not employ the use of comic timing that differentiates strips from panels.

I’m much happier to see that fellow King Features strip, The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee was nominated as that is one of my favourite reads. And fellow ACA member, Anton Emdin was nominated for his illustration work.

And if Tom Richmond doesn’t get something for all his deserved nominations, something is VERY wrong in the system…
