Congratulations to Mark Fiore, first alt-cartoonist to win the Pulitzer since Feiffer!

And with my old friend Matt Wuerker a finalist, this was a very good year for editorial cartoonists working outside the standard template. (As I noted in my now-obsolete letter to the Pulitzer Board four years ago, the only other remotely non-traditional editorial cartoonists to have ever won the award were Trudeau and Breathed.)
