Not only is Jan Eliot’s Stone Soup the top selling Cathy replacement – it’s also hitting a major milestone: 15 years in syndication.

Stone Soup debuted on November 20, 1995.

Congrats, Jan!

Stone Soup may be a replacement for Cathy, but I’ve always thought it a much better strip. I’d enjoy another 15 years, too.

Happy Birthday Stone Soup! It’s nice to know we share the same birthday! Only thing is, I wish our ages were the same because I’ll be 40 years old tomorrow.

Glad to be one of the newspaper to join the Stone Soup family. Hardin County, Ky., daily The News-Enterprise welcomed Jan Eliot on Oct. 4, 2010.

I get access to Stone Soup in a Chicago suburb newspaper called The Daily Herald.

I’ve enjoyed Stone Soup for many years on a rather archaic fashion…in “print.” It is contained in a content-delivery method called a “newspaper.” (Some of you old-timers might remember them.) But seriously, Jan–you’ve been doing great work, and I always look forward to the next day’s strip. Congratulations!
