    Western cartoonist and author Stan Lynde, creator of the nationally syndicated “Rick O’Shay” comic strip, has died of cancer in Montana. He was 81. His “Rick O’Shay” comic strip began in 1958 and ran for 20 years with an average daily readership of about 15 million people. In 1979, he launched another comic strip, “Latigo,” which ran through 1983. Lynde died Tuesday in Helena, where he lived with his wife.

    MEDINA, OHIO, April 24, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – A long-running, nationally syndicated comic strip will feature a homosexual couple holding hands and attending the prom together. “Funky Winkerbean” will depict two men holding hands as they buy tickets at the fictional Westview High School. “So, who are you guys taking to the prom, anyway?” asks a young female ticket seller. “Uh, that would be each other,” they reply. The comic is featured in 400 newspapers nationwide. “Dealing with intolerance is something I’ve dealt with many times before. Adding the gay angle is just a twist to the topic,” said strip creator...

    There appears to be a growing epidemic of cranky creative types taking to the Internet to defend themselves from amateur critics. Some are shameless in their self-promotion; others operate under the veil of anonymity. Until they get busted, that is. This is what happened to Dilbert creator Scott Adams last week, in a public humiliation storyline that would suit a certain workplace drone comic strip character of his own creation. Adams was revealed to have been using an online pseudonym to bash message board users who did not have nice things to say about him. ...The backstory: An individual posting...

    The comic strip "Cathy," which has chronicled the life, frustrations and swimsuit season meltdowns of its namesake for more than 30 years, is coming to an end. Cathy Guisewite, the strip's creator, said Wednesday that deciding to end the comic strip was "excruciating." The comic has won several awards, including a 1992 National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award and an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 1987, and at its height appeared in 1,400 papers. "It's just been really unbelievably agonizing to make the decision," Guisewite said in a telephone interview from her home in the Los Angeles area. "The...

    CHICAGO (AFP) – Little Orphan Annie, the plucky redheaded star of Broadway musical and comic strip fame, has run out of tomorrows ---at least in print. The pop culture icon who sang and danced her way to international fame in the Broadway musical that gave us tunes such as "It's The Hard-Knock Life," and "Tomorrow," ended her decades-long run as a comic strip heroine on Sunday, June 13. Tribune Media Services, the division of media conglomerate the Tribune Company that syndicates the strip to US newspapers, is pulling the plug on the irrepressible Annie, her trusty dog Sandy and her...

    No matter how bad the news, no matter how grim the headlines, you could always count on a smile from at least one corner of the daily newspaper: the comics. But in this day when we could use a laugh more than ever, the reality facing the comics section is anything but funny. With the newspaper business hemorrhaging readers and money, newspapers are slicing the number of strips they carry. Artist and filmmaker Mark Tatulli said he has seen 30 newspapers drop his strip "Lio" in the last 18 months. "Newspapers are saving money wherever they can, and they are...

    Anyone see today's Sunday "Doonesbry" column? As many of you know the Ultra-Left starting with moveon.org made insidious references President George W. Bush being Adolf Hitler reincarnate. That we were living under a repressive regime, etc.. Well today Gary Trudeau in "Doonesbury" seems to be making the same kind of comparison to President Obama except in his case it isn't too far from the truth. Any thoughts out there on this? Is this an example of some of the Left having grave doubts about Obama? Have at it then with your opinions.

This still leaves me with eighty-odd papers, as well as Salon and Credo, so it’s not a fatal blow.

    It's not exactly "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN," but some newspaper editors are pondering how to deal with a "Doonesbury" comic strip to be published the day after the election that assumes Barack Obama will win the presidency. Comic creator Garry Trudeau delivered a series of strips for next week's papers showing his characters reacting to an Obama victory. But he offered no such option in the event of a comeback by John McCain, who's trailing Obama in the polls. Trudeau's syndicator is offering papers a series of rerun strips from August. But the Obama story line is forcing some editors to...

    Doonesbury is doomed. ... One lesson the book provided was simply that the put on is mightier than the put down. Insults are easy as any observer of the current election cycle can attest. Ragging on the opposition with grace and humor takes intelligence. When humor is lost, so is one’s advantage. This is why Garry Trudeau is sunk. A pair of Sunday comics paints such a stark contrast between political observation and humor that it shows why old comics should fade away. On this day both Garry Trudeau (Doonesbury) and Chris Muir (Day by Day) opined on current issues...

    PHILADELPHIA - Cartoonist Ted Key, whose comic strip "Hazel" about a bossy maid went from magazine page to TV screen, has died. He was 95. He died Saturday at his home in the Philadelphia suburb of Tredyffrin Township after a 1 1/2-year battle with cancer, his son Peter Key said Monday. "Hazel" was a popular feature in The Saturday Evening Post from the time it debuted in 1943. It evolved into a prime-time series in 1961 that starred Shirley Booth and ran for four years on NBC and one year on CBS. Key also created the characters Mr. Peabody and...

    Very early in my ministry, I found myself in a bitterly divided congregation. I saw things I wished I’d never seen and heard things I wished I’d never heard. More depressingly, I thought things I wish I’d never thought. Finally, I did the best thing I knew to do for my family and for me, and resigned my position. While the church voted to accept my resignation, I sat at home wondering if I really wanted to serve in church ministry—or even to go to church—knowing what I knew about human depravity. I turned on the television for some background...

    Des Moines, Iowa (AP) -- A judge has sided with a man who was fired for posting a "Dilbert" comic strip that made fun of managers on an office bulletin board. David Steward was fired from the Catfish Bend Casino because management found the cartoon "very offensive," human resources director Steve Morley testified at a recent unemployment benefits hearing. The casino had challenged his claim for unemployment benefits. "Basically, he was accusing the decision-makers of being drunken lemurs," Morley testified. "We consider that misconduct when you insult your employer." According to state records, Steward posted the comic in late October,...

The news that Rod Johnston had met someone else was a devastating shock to Lynn, whose millions of fans thought her long marriage -- like the long marriage of Elly and John -- was "storybook" in nature. "It shows our family was as vulnerable as anyone," she said during a phone interview with E&P. But there's a silver lining of...

    A week before Father's Day, cartoonist Berkeley Breathed did a very cartoonist thing and caused a controversy to be stirred over a comic strip that seemed to slight fathers while celebrating lesbian moms. More or less. Reaction has been swift and predictable: outrage on the right, smug contempt for the right on the left. In the middle is one happy cartoonist, who got a rise from a jaded nation. Though the message of the strip may be interpreted more than one way - either as advancing an idea or exposing a cultural phenomenon - outrage is not necessarily misplaced. For...

Though other comics occasionally address religious themes, mainstream newspapers and syndicates have largely avoided strips that make religion so central.... Because of the religious content in “Heaven’s Love Thrift Shop,” several papers have run it in the news pages rather than with other comics.

But the man behind the long-running comic strip "Doonesbury" said he felt a little chagrined as he stood before about 400 Vietnam veterans and their spouses. "It's humbling to receive an award for storytelling in a room of people so filled with stories," the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist said. Trudeau was in Tucson to accept the President's Award for Excellence in the Arts from the Vietnam Veterans of America at the group's national conference, held this week at the Hilton El Conquistador Hotel, 10000 N.

"I hope that this fall you will agree that the time away from the demands of deadlines has served the strip, your readers and me." McGruder offered no further explanation and declined interviews.
