The National Cartoonist Society gave out their annual awards this weekend. Non Sequitur’s Wiley Miller won The Reuben Award as presented to the outstanding cartoonist for the year. Miller reacted to the Washington Post:

“At my age, I’ve been around long enough [to know] that this doesn’t mean I’m going to make more money or, like an Oscar, I’ll get more plum roles,” Miller tells Comic Riffs. “Pretty much the only ones who know about it are in [this] room. But it’s important to be part of that legacy.”


Non Sequitur began in 1992 and has since evolved from a single panel Far Side-type strip to a horizontal format strip with recurring characters. Along th way it dabbled in political commentary as well. The strip won Best Panel from the NCS three times, and best Panels once, so you could say that it was high time that Miler took home the lifetime achievement award.

The awards were given out at the annual NCS banquet on Saturday night in San Diego, CA. Special awards were presented to “Weird Al” Yankovic for Amateur Cartoonist Extraordinaire, Russ Heath received the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award; and The Lockhorns Bunny Hoest Carpenter and John Reiner received the Gold Key Award.
