Cul-De-Sac Launches Today

Richard Thompson’s Cul-De-Sac officially launches today. According to Universal Press, it launched with an above average number of papers (70) including the Detroit Free Press, the Boston Globe, the Portland Oregonian, the Houston Chronicle and the Toronto Star. It should be up on GoComics today, but I just checked and it’s not yet available.

  1. This week, Cul-De-Sac replaced Red & Rover in the Boston Globe, and it replaced The Elderberries in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

  2. If you go to the main comics page that lists all the comics both Cul-De-Sac and Eek! by Scott Nickel (also new today) are listed under new comics.

  3. Wow, I’m so looking forward to this strip. The art alone has me hooked not to mention the few strips I’ve seen so far are brilliant.

  4. Congratulations Richard! Cul-De-Sac looks great.

    I would say “good luck,” but with a 70 paper launch it doesn’t look like you’re going to need it.

  5. Congratulations, Richard! You are an amazing talent and the strip is a wonder. You have earned, and deserve all the good fortune coming your way. Cheers!

  6. I’ve looked for it in the Detroit Free Press every day since the annoucement. It does not appear to be available.

  7. A launch commitment does not guarantee print real estate for the comic. Many papers pick up comics and then stockpile them to run later or change their mind after a few months and not run the strip at all. The Free Press seems particularly prone to doing this.
