“The Simpsons” creator Matt Groening and three syndicated newspaper artists are finalists for the National Cartoonists Society’s 57th Annual Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year.

Nominees include “Rose is Rose” creator Pat Brady of United Feature Syndicate, “Luann” creator Greg Evans of United, and “Bizarro” creator Dan Piraro of King Features Syndicate. Groening also has newspaper ties — his long-running TV show spawned a weekly comic currently distributed by Universal Press Syndicate, and he still does the “Life in Hell” comic for Acme Features Syndicate.

The winner will be announced May 24 during the annual Reuben weekend in San Francisco.
