Bunny Hoest and John Reiner to be inducted into NCS Hall of Fame

The National Cartoonists Society announced that Bunny Hoest and John Reiner will be honored with the Gold Key Award at next year’s Reuben Award Weekend and thus becoming inducted into the NCS Hall of Fame.

From the announcement:

Bunny Hoest is the writer of several cartoon series, including The Lockhorns, Laugh Parade and Howard Huge, all of which she inherited from her late husband Bill Hoest. She is also the co-creator of Bumper Snickers in 1974, Agatha Crumm in 1977, What A Guy! in 1986 and Hunny Bunny?s Short Tales in 1992.

John Reiner is Hoest?s long-time collaborator, at one point drawing three cartoon series simultaneously: The Lockhorns for daily syndication, and Laugh Parade and Howard Huge for Parade magazine. He has also worked for Marvel Comics and has done freelance advertising art, humorous illustrations and political caricatures.

Hoest and Reiner began working together in 1986, when Hoest?s late husband, Bill Hoest, hired Reiner on as an assistant to help draw the features.

Congratulations, Bunny and John!
