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.
