    Very sad to hear this. Will the Tattler be under new management?

    I mentioned back in January my sadness at Chris’ passing. Aspen, Co, lost a great guy and so did this strip. Rest in Peace ole friend,

    Very sad news for the comic community — and, my lord, someone knows Philbert Desanex’s alter ego! Good choice WW!

    It would be inappropriate to draw any politically incorrect conclusions.

    I think I’m missing something. Someone clue me in on this one.

    Chris Cassatt just passed away. Jeff MacNelly (who is not listed on the mast head any more) was the originator of Shoe. Chris Cassatt originally came on board Shoe as an assistant to Jeff — so the character Cosmo was “drawn” [to] Chris through Jeff.

    Chris was a special person. he drew many characters and strips. Sal amander, Pizza Bonz and his political cartoons were great.

    Too bad there is such a lag time on publication. Chris did pass late January. This was one of my favorite strips (along with Tank McNamara) when Columbus had two papers. I just recently found Go Comics, and now I find two of my favorites in transition. So far, so good. Keep up the good work. I’ve seen some headers that show Jeff’s daughter? as a contributor.

    I’ll miss his sense of reality. Helped me keep my feet on the ground.

    @Norman L Jones Sr

    Apparently she contributes to the dailies as well—notice her signature along the right edge of the third panel.


    @bordercolliedawn: Jeff’s name still appears in the title panel of the Sunday strips—it’s officially “Jeff MacNelly’s Shoe.”
