MIke Luckovich’s Reuben award was borrowed

E&P has a pretty good behind the scenes story that was first reported by R.C. Harvey.  Is it goes, Mike Luckovich’s Reuben trophy did not arrive in Chicago in time for the award ceremony, so NCS organizers dropped back to plan ‘B’ – borrow a trophy from a previous award winner who lived in the Chicago area.

Dick Tracy came to the rescue – or more correctly – the daughter of Chester Gould, creator of Dick Tracy, agreed to lend one of Chesters two Reuben statues for the ceremony.

That’s weird, but funny story.

Hopefully, Mike got his actual Reuben later on.
