Interview with LJ, where she talks about how the strip will be wrapped up, and what will happen afterwards.
Fans will be delighted to know that the strip will not end. Rather, it will continue as a still-being discussed hybrid of some earlier, little seen work along with some new material.
??? I can't quite parse that, but I'll bet anything it means that the letters will continue on the website, with an occasional strip to bolster them.
"[April] has made that transition from little girl to young adult," Johnston said. "When the strip concludes, she'll be getting ready to go to university, she'll be excited and scared."
??? again. She'll only be 16 next year. Will there be a flash-forward? Actually, that might not surprise me, since a flash-forward would also allow time to plan a wedding.
"She'll still be hanging out with the band. She would definitely, eventually, be a veterinarian, because it's one of the things that always interested me and all of the characters are me."
You don't say.
Johnston says she knows many readers already mourn the loss of April as a child, with her bib overalls, pageboy haircut and Farley by her side.
