COLUMBUS, Ohio — The first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning is among the participants in an annual cartoon and comic strip festival in Ohio’s capital city.
Cartoon Crossroads Columbus runs Sept. 28 through Oct. 1 at various locations throughout the city. It features creators of comic strips, political cartoons and graphic novels among others.
Cartoonist Signe (SIG’-nee) Wilkinson won the editorial cartooning Pulitzer Prize in 1982. She also created the syndicated strip Family Tree.
Columbus has a growing reputation as a hub for cartoonists. The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum at Ohio State has the world’s largest collection of cartoons and comic strips.
