Marty Two Bulls Sr. has been named runner-up and finalist for the Herblock Foundation award for editorial cartooning in the USA. He is Oglala Lakota and a member of the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota; he is a freelancer whose work appears frequently in Indian Country Today. Herb Block, known as Herblock, was a legendary Washington Post cartoonist whose favorite target was Richard M. Nixon; Herblock created much of the visual shorthand that said “Nixon” as soon as you saw it; the ski-jump nose, shifty eyes and 5 o’clock shadow that made him such a comic villain. If the past pattern holds, look for Mr. Two Bulls Sr. to take home the top prize next year, a tremendous honor for a freelancer; he’s also very well known among comic book fans. (Phoenix Comicon)
