Roy, do you mean the 3 best cartoonists of the present day? Cartoonists who are still living and producing work? Or are you thinking of all time?

Just wondering.

Off the top of my head, I would list these 3 great working cartoonists:

Sempe

John Caldwell

P.C. Vey

Of course, I'll change my mind about this in ten minutes!

Three all time great gag cartoonists:

Chon Day

VIP

Don Orehek (who is alive and well and has a cartoon in this month's PLAYBOY)

Thanks for this, Roy.

We KNOW George Herriman was a comic cartoonist, but what the hell, in THIS contest, I'm bending the rules !
George Herriman would've been a GREAT gag cartoonist !

Dead guys:
Charles Addams
VIP
Peter Arno

Living guys:
Sam Gross
Danny Shanahan
Glen McCoy

It's tough though. I could have a list of ten guys off the top of my head and it would be hard to rank them in order.
