    Alex, maybe you could reboot your own hair first. You’ve had pretty much the same style since middle school.

    Not sure we could tell her from Mike if she changed her hair…

    So this means the reruns have already started… he knew weeks ago that he was gonna bail again. Sigh.

    God forbid the death of his mother should affect his work.

    Are these Alex’s mom’s parents, or her dad’s?

    GT’s mom died not long ago as well as the renewal of alpha house, meaning that the strip will be slowing down, but we will soon get to see more alpha house, which is partial great news.

    Maybe Alex could reboot her own hair. She always looks like a wild mustang in need of a curry comb and a brush.

    His mother’s death was the reason for the reruns in the week of Jan 20th, but it seems unlikely to be the reason now, given that he came back for two weeks. On the other hand, the stories say the “indefinite hiatus” begins on 24th. I wonder whether he had a two week arc planned originally for this week and next, and is now ditching it to give himself time to prepare a set for next week that will tie up some loose ends temporarily, and/or explain the premise going forward (surely he can’t continue to use such a large cast when it is only a Sunday strip?).
    I can’t imagine he’s ever actually going to come back to daily strips. He is 65, and even before the big hiatus last year there were a lot of reruns. Surely he will want the freedom to do other things, or just to take it easy?
    Anyway, I’m going to check in Sunday and then see if Monday’s is new, otherwise, I’ll be a Sunday only reader from now on. If any of you on that side of the pond want a political satirical cartoon that requires you to learn as much about UK politics as we’ve had to about US, try Steve Bell’s “If…” (a search will find it for you). If you thought GT was scathing…

    Ok Astolat, thanks for the tip. I hope people continue to watch alpha house. It is very funny!

    ReedKomicks and Ladykat….


    Not quite.

    Joanie Caucus (Gram) is the mother of Alex’s mom, JJ…

    but 2nd husband Rick is not the biological grandpa….that would be Joan’s first husband, Clinton.


    JJ became Mike Doonesbury’s first wife…

    But she left Alex with Mike, and ran off with the useless Zeke (“Uncle Stupidhead” to Alex).

    Then Mike, Alex’s father, married Kim.


    Mike’s parents lived on a farm.

    Not confusing, right?

    Now when someone asks me, “What was the name of Joanie Caucus’ first husband?” I have the answer ready.
