Maybe we can get a Little Dog Lost collection published?

You are right. Thanks for the correction. Now there is a Feb 17 post from her saying she needs a break and a new stylus for her tablet. I can understand how hard it is for a cartoonist to keep a regular schedule when they are not in the mood and how hard it is to actually let go and end the comic. It is staying on my page hoping Jennifer Babcock returns soon or at least whenever she is in the mood.
Check her facebook page. Apparently she is having problems connecting to GoComics.

This comic is used to illustrate Washington Post advice column by Carolyn Hax. Today’s was about a couple that had raised their children under strict religious rules and never told them that they both had been married before (without children) and had conceived their first before they got married.

Shawn I like your comic but I can handle so much never ending depression. Heck, even Darby tries to find a way to break from her depression. I like the characters and like to see more happiness for them. Look back at the stories you have told. How many times has Darby ended up in a hospital a victim of violence? Understand it is not the stories or the violence that I need a break from, it is the absence of light fun stories to break the downer mood. I wish for an occasional happy ending. Perhaps I have just missed Darby’s happy moments. Could you please rerun the happiest Jillpoke Bohemia story? I would like to see Darby have a reason to smile.
As we continue to read the past of this comic I try to understand why I would so often need to take a break from it. Today’s strip is a good example of the never ending violence and depressing story lines. I grew to expect every story to end the same – bloody and with Darby in the hospital.
Good luck to you in the future. I got my first writing job in 1975 and never really made a living at it. There were periods where I stopped trying to sell my work but found I still wrote inside my head just for me. This was a good idea to try other things. I once had a script meeting with the head writer of NBC’s REMINGTON STEELE. He suggested I try books but I was so focused on TV I blew it off. Turned out he was writing a series of books at the moment. If I had been more open who knows what his advice could have meant to my career. You certainly experimented with your premise here, trying everything to fantasy to soap opera. Keep writing it makes life more interesting.
When (Will) we see new strips return?

It is hard to seriously comment about a comic that is a rerun and appeared shortly after the event. But I will always remember the white sheriff of a small parish (county) on TV telling that due to the slowness of the government there wasn’t enough rescue helicopters to go around and how he lost his grandmother because of it. Today we realize the hurricane hit more than New Orleans that Mississippi and the rural areas of Louisiana were hurt as well.
America has never let actual facts get in the way of its version of history. So Shawn can be forgiven.
