Cul de Sac big winner in line-up changes this week

There is still quite a bit of movement on the comic pages across the country. Here are the changes I’ve been able to document:

Richard Thompson’s Cul de Sac has been picked up by the Deseret News (Salt Lake City), The Star Bulletin, and The Daily News (Murfreesboro, TN). All of these three mentioned that Cul De Sac was replacing Mark Pett’s retired Lucky Cow.

From the comments of the Lucky Cow announcement, a reader tell us that the St. Louis Post-Dispatch replaced Lucky Cow with Brenda Starr.

Hilary Price’s Rhymes with Orange was picked up by The Weston Town Crier.

And The Concord Monitor dropped Hagar the Horrible after a two week poll indicated that Wiley Miller’s Non Sequitur was the crowd favorite.

While I hate that “Lucky Cow” has gone away, I’m so very glad to hear “Cul de Sac” is the strip that so many papers are replacing it with.

Concord evidently is the anti-Scranton.

Cul de Sac is one of those strips that has both great art and great writing. It is one of my absolute favorites and I’m always glad to hear of more papers picking up the strip. The business is very well deserved.

I’m bummed about Lucky Cow too. Really. Congrats, folks.

Brenda Starr, though?
