That is the strongest set of nominees for newspaper comic strip I’ve seen in a long time! I have a really hard time picking one among those three – they’re all excellent.

I think it’s also worth noting here the nominees for the big Reuben award, cartoonist of the year: Dan Piraro, Dave Coverly, and Stephan Pastis.
