The votes have been counted. The winner of the Reuben Award for Cartoonist of the Year in 2011 is -- drum roll -- MAD Magazine's Tom Richmond. Congratulations, Tom!
Stephan Pastis, having been nominated for the award five times in a row, still has a way to go to match actress Susan Lucci's eighteen nominations for the Daytime Emmy Award before she finally won.. We're rooting for you, Stephan!

This kit is much cooler, with its transparent plastic power-ring hand and mid-air flying pose. I wish that it had been around back then. It costs almost 25 times what I paid for my discounted Superman kit, but hey, that was more than 35 years ago. Prices go up.
It's made by a company called Moebius Models, which manufactures a whole line of science fiction model kits and products. Check out their website.
I still have one unassembled Superman model kit left. It isn't in the original box, but all the parts are there. I really ought to turn it into something one of these days...
On a slightly different subject, I was just looking at the stats for this blog. Among the search terms that have brought people here, I found (twice) the phrase Green Lather Showcase comic. Should I be foaming at the mouth?
