Overview

The cartoons featured in this collection of political commentary have been honored by the most prestigious competitions in the country. Descriptions of each prize, including the Scripps Howard National Journalism Awards, the Overseas Press Club's Thomas Nast Award, and the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Awards, are provided with photos and biographies of winners and nominees. From Pulitzer Prize-winner Mike Keefe's compelling statements about gays in the military to the pot shots at the Catholic Church, by National Headliner Award-recipient Mike Peters, these images have been deemed the most important of 2011.

Also included in this edition are samplings of work from the artists, at once surprising, irritating, and thought-provoking, such as "Gulf Coast Jobs," by Steve Breen; "War Hurts Morale," by Joel Pett; and "Debt Bugs," by Gary Varvel. As they attempted to sum up the key moments of the past year, these editorial cartoonists included incendiary topics such as TSA scans, the Gulf Coast Oil Spill, and the introduction of the iPad. Informative and entertaining, this record of achievement showcases the most insightful political opinions available.

Retired from the U.S. Navy, Dean P. Turnbloom has drawn editorial cartoons all his life. His work has been published in USA Today and on CNN.com and featured in the Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year Series, also from Pelican. He lives in San Diego, California.
