So many GoComics creators were nominated for The National Cartoonist Society's 71st annual Reuben Awards this year, we knew it was going to be a busy weekend. Still, with five winners across 15 regular categories, we think 2017 may be one of our most fully-stocked years yet.

undefinedCongratulations to Editorial Cartoons winner Michael Luckovich, Newspaper Panels winner (and Reubens host) Nick Galifianakis (Nick and Zuzu), Advertising/Product Illustration winner Luke McGarry (of TLDR fame), Online Comics - Short Form winner Ruben Bolling, and Book Illustration winner Dave Whamond (of Reality Check) for wins in their respective categories.
