With March 30, 2019, the Ballard Street comic panel comes to an end.
by Jerry Van Amerongen
daily: March 4, 1991 – March 30, 2019
Sunday: March 10, 1991* – October 17, 2010
[began as a daily strip, went panel only in early 1994]
*unconfirmed – Sundays began in L. A. Times on March 24, 1991
The penultimate panel (below) showcased a Van Amerongen couple in a typically fantastic situation.
The last panel has Scooter donning his chaps and running free of any deadlines.
We thank Jerry for the years of incomparable, eccentric and funny panels, and wish Jerry all the best.
Also, good luck with this year’s nomination in the Newspaper Comic Panel division of the Reubens.
