Chivalry Ain’t Dead, but The Knight Life Is


Saturday September 14, 2019:

Keith Knight has spent the past week hinting that he was ending his The Knight Life daily strip. Beginning the week with a fortune cookie, and ending the dailies with fulfilling a Make-A-Wish type grant on Saturday September 14, 2019 (above).

It was probably inevitable, what with Keith heavily involved in his Woke series, which kinda takes the strip, twists it, and transfers it to TV.

Today, if I have it correct, is the last of The Knight Life comic strip.

Yesterday Keef announced the ending of his daily comic strip on Twitter:

Following that announcement up today with:


So The K Chronicles and (th)ink will continue.

  1. So we got the second newspaper comic strip to end in 2019 following Ballard Street earlier this week. Although there has yet to be an official word on the fate if Get Fuzzy is finally ending for good since it was all reruns since April 2019 and no new first run Sunday since March 2019.

  2. My hometown paper, The Washington Post, included a tiny note over the Sunday Knight strip that the strip was ending and will be replaced by Nancy. The Post dropped Nancy loooonnng ago. It may just be the Sunday strip, since there was no Nancy in the Monday paper.

  3. Really sorry to see The Knight Life ending, it was probably the first or second strip I looked for in the Post every day (online weekdays). Great commentary, couched in humor. And Life’s Little Victories, too.. ???

    Nancy, ugh! It was lame when I was a kid and it is lame now.

  4. Keef,

    Say it ain’t so!!!! I enjoyed reading The Knight Life
    every day in the Philadelphia Inquirer, and your wry
    take on current events often made my day.

    Cue Joanie Mitchell:

    Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t
    know what you had till it’s gone….
