    PLEASE don’t leave us with no resolution on sick Annie. At least do a text summary or something.

    Wow!
    I just went to John’s website and saw the news. I’m quite sad. I discovered this strip on the old comics.com site
    However, I must emphasise that John does not “owe” us a strip, he’s been doing it as a kindness for us.
    It’s ironic as it is one of the highest rating strips on gocomics. Perhaps if a few more of us signed up on this site as “Pro” …
    Anyway, I just want to thank John for his efforts and the way he could make us laugh (and even cry) at his [proxy] life.
    All the best and every happiness.
    Otto

    I’m so sad that the strip ended. I want to know about Annie, not Frankie. I wish it would’ve ended on a different note since it had to end but I wish you lots of luck.

    John,
    I know what it’s like to have ‘People living in your head.’ They WILL have their say, eventually. Once they’re ‘Alive’ they can’t be stopped.

    Good luck in ‘retiring’ them, but I’ve got a feeling they’ll be back.

    All the best!

    I know it’s an old hackneyed phrase John, but when one door closes, another opens. Good luck going forward!!!

    That’s two “Annie” stories that are in a possible permanent cliffhanger. This and “Little Orphan Annie”

    At least in “Annie” she isn’t as little and hasn’t been an orphan since she became a Warbucks at least has 12 years here. (Wish they had all of them going back to her start.)

    If JWS can find backing or a way of doing his comic on his own we will see more. At least it isn’t from a degenerative disease like Parkinson’s that have stopped “Cul de Sac” from being produced.

    That Annie Story had great possibilitys.


    Assuming She died, right away there’d be an Argument over what to do with the Body; Science [on display at the Gaudi Institute], Cremation [Lila immolates her Shoe collection in anguish], or Internment [with the benefit of broaching the Organized Religion angle]?


    After MRS Mayfield got Her way, it’d take another couple/Days to decide on the Casket: open, or closed?


    The kicker would still be to come; the Jazz-Handed Argument between Lila and Alan: Wig, or no Wig?

    That’s just GREAT!! Ican understand the reason for the demise of Cul Du Sac, but this comic?! UNEXCEPTIBLE!!
    Now I have to seacrh again for another strip about a working class female. This strip was the replacement for Cathy another strip a working class female. And you know how we loathe repeats, so the search is on (again) for another one. I just commemorated one comic (Dick Tracy) for its rise from obscurity and I’m condeming another for its sudden nstant obscurity! (The Meaning Of Lila)

    It’s not on GoComics, but Tina’s Groove might help fill that gap in your day. And if you don’t insist that your “working class female” be “single,” try Betty.

    Hay he doesn’t have the money. Maybe you could help fund him so he can.
