    Morning, Anniephans!

    Thank you, PurpleDog! I just read today’s Dick Tracy and all I can say is, WOW! It’s finally happening! Annie’s back! Annie’s back! Annie’s back!

    Here’s the link to the 2005 Annie story, “Freddie.”

    The 1940’s called. They want their plot back.

    But is Annie going to be getting new strips in her own space, or will the reruns continue? Sadly, there is no longer a Shadow comic, because I bet he’d know.

    My prediction –
    The new Annie strip will begin on Sunday, April 20.

    The current story line in “Annie” will end on Saturday, April 19, which was originally done on July 19, 2003. This ends the arc with Ben saying, “Ha! Little Orphan Annie! Guess you’ve been around the track a few times at that…”

    Check the “Annie” strip for July 19, 2003 and you’ll see what I’m talking about. This is a most appropriate time to end the “reprint” Annie stories and get back to the story of Annie and the Butcher of the Balkins, with Dick Tracy, Punjab, and the Asp hot in pursuit!

    Asp and Punjab obviously escaped somehow, because their alleged deaths were at least a year earlier and they are appearing alive and well in the Dick Tracy strips.

    I remembered that there was some talk a while back about an Annie storyline that was to be used in Dick Tracy, yet at the time I hadn’t made the connection with Annie’s being left in limbo. All I can say is, kudos to Joe Staton and Mike Curtis for bringing us (in due time) the resolution that Annie’s story should have received!
