    Are we ever going to see new material? Ive seen this one three times now. Is Cho still drawing? should I cancel my subscription to this one?

    The strip ended 10 years ago.
    []
    Cho was constantly having to fight with his editor over different matters, something referenced frequently throughout the course of the strip.
    []
    The final straw came when Cho’s editor threatened to run a blank sheet of paper unless Cho redid a strip, something that would have likely resulted in a number of papers dropping the series. In other words, financial blackmail.
    []
    In response to what was going on, Cho made a deal with Insight (IIRC) comics. Cho continued the strip up until the story arc with Brandy potentially getting married. The series ended one strip before Brandy made her final decision, with a note from Cho saying that if anyone wanted to know how it ended, they needed to pick up “The Big Book of Love”, which would retell the story arc complete with the final strips.
    []
    The plan was for Insight to collect all of the strips in comic book format, complete with material that didn’t run in papers back in the day plus some new material to flesh things out; to kick it all off, a second book – collecting the first few strips and introducing a new wrap-around story – was released.
    []
    The comics collected the entire strip this way, and IIRC went a little bit beyond. The original plan was for the comics to keep going with new material, but somewhere along the way that seemingly fell through. Cho has since gotten work doing illustrations and has taken jobs as an artist for other comic publishers.
    []
    The fact that the strip is still running 10+ years later should tell you something about how popular and long-lasting the strip is, and how it could have kept on going had Cho’s editor not threatened to go nuclear back in the day.

    could be worse, she could have pegged him.

    I think that in their case, “Sweet Music” was NOT a euphamism.
