    I think the day Walt dies is the day that this strip will be ended.

    Father Time must be related to the Grim Reaper.

    @DaJellyBelly: I think you’re right: What is this strip without Uncle Walt?

    Everyone thought it couldn’t go on without Pert… There is still someone buying the strip so it will continue until there is No market for it.

    Well … the strip’s supposedly in real time these days, and Walt’d already be the oldest man in the world by about three years, as well as the second oldest person in the world. Heck, Skeezix turns 93 next month.

    The moment we’ve all been dreading has finally arrived.

    I think that Walt will have to die eventually. Now may or may not be the time, but I don’t think it would mean the end of the strip. The strip has a very large cast and it’s not called “Walt” or anything like that — it’s called “Gasoline Alley.”

    It’s been a long time since Walt was the main focus of the strip. If anything, the main focus should be the garage. Well, maybe not quite, but cars and the small town and family are really what the strip is about. Real-time aging is the strip’s defining feature, so it follows that Walt’s death is getting closer and closer. It could be now.

    @Neil Wick

    Walt has been in it since the beginning, and the cast is largely his extended family and neighbors.

    When and if he does go, I hope his old buddies arrive to gently carry him off to the Valhalla of the old comic strips home, where Skeezix can visit him, especially on Sundays.

    No, it can’t happen. Regardless of his age, this is STILL a comic strip, not real life. Don’t do it, Jim.

    Although, except for the Slim/Santa story, the weekday story has never been a dream, this story looks like it might be.
