Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

Jim Borgman has been the Enquirer's editorial cartoonist since 1976. Borgman has won every major award in his field, including the 1991 Pulitzer Prize, the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year in 1993, and most recently, the Adamson Award in 2005 as International Cartoonist of the Year. His award-winning daily comic strip Zits, co-created with Jerry Scott, chronicles the life of 15-year-old Jeremy Duncan, his family and friends through the glories and challenges of the teenage years. Since debuting in July 1997, Zits has regularly finished #1 in reader comics polls across America and is syndicated in more than 1300 newspapers around the world.

Skip Prosser

RIP Skip. Great coach, but an even better person. You will be missed.

Borgman formula for a eulogy:
Someone dies. Draw a black and white picture of a symbollic emblem of that person (cardinal for Charlie Harper, Statue of Liberty for any American tragedy, Musketteer for Prosser, etc), and make the emblem cry.
I'm a huge fan of you work, Jim, especially the tributes to those deceased. But this is disappointingly unoriginal.

Thank you, Jim. This cartoon truly expresses how we at Xavier feel about losing Skip. I almost cried yesterday when I heard the sad news and again today when I saw your cartoon.

Anon 8:11....I couldn't agree more

Is this the best you can produce, Borgman? You could have at least had the Musketeer take his hat off.....

Looks like someone is past their prime....

This reads right. Good job on a sad day.

Trolls has no shame. Or sense of decency. Or, obviously, artistic knowledge.
Good tribute cartoon.

Nice job Mr. Borgman.
(Wow, "Anonymous" agrees with himself once again.)

To everyone complaining that Jim's being unoriginal with this TRIBUTE then screw off. Can you honestly look at the purpose of this and choose to complain about the style? Go to hell.

I just wanted to apologize in the name of all of us "full time college students" (see comments following Mr. Borgman's vacation) out there who don't like the bad rap the recurring mr. (or ms.) anonymous is giving us. College doesn't equal intelligent, unfortunately. You absolutely do not have to like Jim Borgman: but there is constructive criticism, and there's your approach-whining. I know both liberals and conservatives who manage to convey their views without patronizing anyone who doesn't agree with them. Anon, maybe you could find something more constructive to do with all your passion that requires more than sitting at a screen all day.

Go ahead, do your usual pick-one-aspect-of-my-post-out-and-write-a-snarky-comment-about-my: a.political leanings b. intelligence and/or c. level of being pathetic.. While you piddle away your time attempting to discredit both strangers and a man trying to pay homage to a local hero (in the eyes of XU fans at the very least), I will be away from my computer screen, living life beyond the confines of somebody else's blog.

Abvove All: Rest in peace Skip: I grew up watching your coach the Muskies: you'll be sorely missed.

I would love to get a print of a Demon Deacon version of this...
