The Washington Post Drops FOOB

I opened my Washington Post this morning, and was surprised to see no sign of Lynn Johnston at all. Apparently, The Post has passed on the reruns. I'm shocked by this, I had no idea it was coming; though maybe some of you did. I am always the last to hear inside news :) But I am glad to see such a major paper give space to new artists, surprise that it was.

Here was the explanation:

Today, The Post debuts a new strip, "Little Dog Lost," to replace "For Better or for Worse," which has concluded its first-run originals. The new strip, by Steve Boreman, chronicles the adventures of the title canine with a cast of characters from the natural world. "For Better or For Worse," which is being continued as modified reruns, will be available online at www.washingtonpost.com/comics. As always, we welcome reader feedback on this or any other feature on our comics pages. Call our comics hotline at 202-334-4775, email comics@washpost.com or write to: Comics Feedback, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071.


So based on this, it sure looks to me like the "modified reruns" (I like that!) don't have legs. I just really hope The Post is not flooded with complaints from the refrigerator crowd...
