He has presided over some very good things, such as the debut of Olivia Jaimes, and some less fortunate things such as the removal of strips from GoComics, but presumably there must always be compromises in business.

I with him happiness in his future endeavours,

I was happy with the choice of Olivia Jaimes for Nancy, not so happy with the choice of Joey Sayers for Alley Oop.

Sorry to hear John is moving on, but I hope it’s for greener pastures (insert cow-pie gag here). He has always been a pleasure to deal with (great sense of humor) and I wish him the best.

Rachie, The Daily Cartoonist continues with Mike Peterson and D.D.Degg as it has for the past couple years.

Sorry to hear he’s leaving, and I hope his career flourishes. I well and truly appreciate him for the way he kept Frog Applause alive.

I am grateful to John for his advocacy of Frog Applause, which was on the chopping block at GoComics but was saved for the present by an outpouring of fan support. I sincerely hope that these two events were not connected. I wish him well and hope he lands on his feet in a better situation.
