Cathy, R. I. P.

CBC News - Arts - Cathy comic strip to end: "The comic strip Cathy, which has chronicled the life, frustrations and swimsuit season meltdowns of its namesake for more than 30 years, is coming to an end.

Cathy Guisewite, the strip's creator, said Wednesday that deciding to end the comic strip was 'excruciating.' The comic has won several awards, including a 1992 National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award and an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 1987, and at its height appeared in 1,400 papers."

Yes, well, many years ago I would read many comic strips, but lost interest in all of them I guess.


And, Guisewite I think was a good friend of Charles Schulz and she also did interviews for an A&E biography about Schulz.

She was a doll but the strip sucked.
