Jeff Danziger takes this years Herblock Prize

Jeff Danziger has taken home the Herblock Prize for editorial cartooning.

Jules Feiffer, one of three judges for this year’s contest, said Danziger’s cartoons “have a sense of literary intelligence.” The former Village Voice/Universal Press Syndicate cartoonist added that the Herblock Prize winner’s Iraq War commentary is “the closest thing to the feeling Bill Mauldin gave us in his best days.” The late Mauldin was a World War II veteran, while Danziger is a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War.
