Reubens are awarded for things other than sandwiches

Apologies for not being up to date, but here in the States it was Memorial Day weekend. I had to deal with two picnics and one trip to the clinic — strangely not for getting my stomach pumped but for getting cured of my clogged ear. (Yuck.)

So with that pleasant image logded in your mind, I should remind you that the National Cartoonist Society awarded its first ever Reuben to a webcomic. And that award went to — ta ta ta dah! — Scenes from a Multiverse, by Jon Rosenberg, which beat out The Oatmeal and Penny Arcade. It’s too bad I don’t have a Sugarshock-o-meter for this one, since I had a feeling that this would be the easy winner. But honestly … it’s the Reuben. You know … the one where The Duplex also won an award for best comic strip.

NOTE: I should point out, by the way, that the Reubens were actually named after one Rube Goldberg, who was awesome.


About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.
