On of my favorite cartoons Foxtrot will no longer run daily strips but is going on a weekly Sunday-only publication..

It's a sad day for me :~(

Bill Amend’s popular FoxTrot comic strip will go to a Sunday-only publication schedule as of Dec. 31, 2006, announced Universal Press Syndicate today. The last daily will be Saturday, Dec. 30. Reruns of dailies will be available for Web usage.

“After spending close to half of my life writing and drawing FoxTrot cartoons, I think it’s time I got out of the house and tried some new things,” said Amend. “I love cartooning and I absolutely want to continue doing the strip, just not at the current all-consuming pace. I’ve been blessed over the years with a terrific syndicate, patient newspaper clients, and more support from readers than I probably deserve, and I want to assure them all that while I’ll be now a less-frequent participant on the comics pages, I’ll continue to treat my visits as the special privilege they are.”

Sad news! It's one of the last of the truly funny cartoons in the papers anymore. RIP Far Side and Calvin & Hobbes.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
