74th Reubens – Hy Eisman to be Honored with the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award

Hy Eisman began his cartooning career in 1950, and 70 years later he’s still at it.

The National Cartoonists Society has announced that Hy will receive the Milton Caniff Award:

We are in awe that at the age of 92 Hy is currently drawing and writing the gags for the Popeye Sunday strip. We also recognize Hy’s work teaching at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic art until just last year. His contribution to the furthering of the art form is nothing short of heroic. The NCS is lucky to have had Hy Eisman as a loyal and dedicated member of the Society.

On behalf of the board of directors of the National Cartoonists Society, It is my great pleasure to announce that Hy Eisman will be awarded the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement award at the 74th Annual Reuben Awards in Kansas City!
