A.J.B. Lane brings an webcomic sensibility to his cartoons for the Boston Globe, alternating between the traditional single panel and longer form commentary. His editor writes, "Adam chose to give local figures and issues the scrutiny they deserved. Our pages were better as a result."
[Throughout his life, Rex Babin championed those who focused on state and local issues in editorial cartoons, a field that he and other cartoonists felt was regularly overlooked by journalism contests. The "Rex Babin Memorial Award for Excellence in Local Cartooning" was launched in 2017 to celebrate those working in this niche. To that end, we will be showcasing each cartoonist who entered the contest this year, one or two each day in alphabetical order (more or less), leading up to the AAEC Convention in Sacramento, CA, and the announcement of the award winner on Saturday, Sept. 22.]
