    Like so many good strips, Lila is now a “re-run only” strip. As JWF said, it’s just too hard to make a living at it. Especially if it’s costing you money to do it! Cartoonists, like writers, need to make their money somewhere else. Sadly.

    @Steph Dun

    The strip has ended… there is no more “where it was”. See Monday’s comments for details.

    How things are going in the world´s economy, either they “let go” the author(s) of this strip, or they are on vacation…. hope it is the second though.

    New strips have ended. It’s just too hard to keep doing them and not getting compensated. It’s all explained on my blog at it’s been a tough week, but am very touched by your kind comments and well wishes. Thank you so much for reading LILA. I am updating and refining all the classic strips before they’re published so if you’re new to the strip, you may enjoy the trip back to see how it all started with Lila. I’m sorry to end it so abuptly but I closed a cliffhanger in case the classics generate enough of an audience that it makes financial sense to come back. A cliffhanger may also bring the old readers back. Thank you, all, for reading Lila and for your great comments. I was here reading and enjoying them everyday and they helped me make my strip better.

    @JWF It depresses me too! I found this to be one of the best comics out there. I do hope it you can make it back again. Best of luck!

    Don’t think the demise is so much the world economy, but the fact that newspapers are cutting costs (and the number of strips they run) because of declining circulation, and that is a direct result of the internet and 24 hour news channels on cable. We all get to read this for free (the non-pros, anyway) just some ads up in the corner. Why pay for the cow if you can get the milk for free?

    I too enjoy this comic very much, sorry to see it go. #6 on my list. Will be back every day, anyway.

    Just like Cul de Sac which ended Lila’s ending her strip too. When did Cow and Boy ended their strip?
