Jim Borgman received the honor of taking the cover of this year’s Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year. I’m not sure how the cover cartoon is selected, but it probably goes through a more unbiased selection process than other best of books.
In other BECOTY tidbits – AAEC members Dean Turnbloom and his son Lucas Turnbloom both submitted editorial cartoons for consideration and the younger Turnbloom’s work did get into the book, but the work was attributed to his father. Oops. According to Dean, Lucas is taking the oversight in stride.
