The Pulitzers were announced last week, with Adam Zyglis of The Buffalo News taking the prize for editorial cartooning. But something unusual happened with this year's finalists: a non-traditional cartoonist, Tom Tomorrow, was recognized, with the Washington Post calling him "the Prize’s biggest outlier since [Jules] Feiffer in the ’80s."

"Even if I didn't quite manage to grab the brass ring, it was still more than I ever expected to happen."
