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.

Richard Thompson

If you haven't discovered Richard Thompson's blog yet, you might want to do that. If you haven't discovered Richard Thompson's Cul de Sac comic strip yet, you might want to do that, too. If you haven't discovered Richard Thompson at all, poor lamb, do.

A guy at Ennis Books sent me Richard's Poor Almanack a year ago and I haven't been the same since. Not many cartoonists pull me out of my orbit anymore, but every time I open this book it sends me into an identity crisis. Richard's stuff is so damn fun.

I can't put my finger on why I like Richard Thompson's style. It's so loose and messy and yet it keeps my eye interested in the linework.

Big fan of Thompson's work here in DC...cul de sac is brilliant, and I'm glad to see it shared beyond the beltway!

There once was a real place to eat on the outskirts of Chicago called Squat and Gobble. The title invites a cartoon, perhaps a song. Borgman is my hero, but you are also on the mark.
