Rabbits Reuben Awards Submission Package 2022

I’m deeply humbled, and honored, that my comic strip Rabbits Against Magic has (for the third time!) been nominated by my peers as one of the three finalists for the Silver Reuben award by the National Cartoonists Society for "Best On-Line Comic Strip". The winner will be announced in September’s black tie ceremony in Kansas City, MO. Congrats to the other nominees... the amazing Rich Powell and the wonderful Scott Nickel too.

The NCS only requires 8 samples now (down from the previous12). It was a pretty daunting task to whittle all of last year's strips down to just 8. The voting was done online and any member of the NCS could vote.  Previously, only one chapter (often only four or five people) who make the selections.











Rabbits Against Memes

 

Quite the collection here of rabbit/hat/magic themed comic strips.  Maybe it's almost enough for this to be a "thing".  I've actually had the pleasure of meeting all these cartoonists in real life.

Rabbits against the use of the phrase "Ta-Da!"

 



Some more magic rabbit-related comics to prove that this blog is still alive and kicking.

Rabbits Against Nostrils

Today's Wizard of Id. I can't help feeling the second panel should have read "Achoocadabra".

I figured I'd post this so the rumors of my death will cease.

Rabbits Against Street Food

When I read through the daily strips every morning, one of the highlights is always the art of Tak Bui, the artist behind PC and Pixel. His line work and details make the strip a huge outlier in the comic strip world where most strips are simplified and have minimal backgrounds.

Rabbits Against Strange Brew

A great joke from the always amusing John Deering in his "Strange Brew" strip today.  I think the name "Quackenbush" makes it even funnier.

Rabbits Against Wood Chippers

Fargo started off Season 2 Episode 3 with a vintage rabbit out of a hat trick. The only sour point to an otherwise excellent TV series.

Krazy Kat Against Magic

Wow!  This one is from Valentine's Day 1938.

Gulp!


In my usual awkward English way I am I'm severely humbled to announce that for the second time in three years my comic strip Rabbits Against Magic has been nominated for a Reuben Award (The "Oscar" of Comic Strips) by the National Cartoonist Society. Of course it’s a cliché to say it’s an honor just to be nominated but in this instance it IS! So many other great strips missed out this year.  It’s amazing to thing that I was considered top three in the first “peoples” vote. The winner of the award will be announced on May 23rd in Washington DC.  This is not an April fools joke :-)

Rabbits Against The Great Edisonini

Cartoon great, John Hambrock draws the wonderful comic strip The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee which this week touches on the dark arts.  I'm a huge fan but I love this particular strip for obvious reasons.  The coloring is always great as well.

Rabbits Against Calaveras

Yup.  It's Day of the Dead again so time for my annual tribute to the great Mexican engraver José Guadalupe Posada mixed in with some papel picado.



This was the first time since 2008 that it's fallen on a Sunday so it's double the work but twice the fun.  Here are the previous six:
