What about the Sunday only Little Oop comic strip that’s part of the revamped Jonathan Lemon Alley Oop comic strip that started January 2019?

I treated Little Oop as part of the Alley Oop strip; like I would Right Around Home/Myrtle, or Out Our Way/Out Our Way with The Willets, or even, to an extent, Wash Tubbs/Captain Easy.
I did note the anomaly in the Deviations report.

Congrats on breaking into newspapers! It is so freaking hard. The two papers I am are a Blessing from God I will treasure throughout my run and beyond. They could both go under tomorrow and I will be super proud of my four years in print.

Treasure the success, It is a major achievement. I am so happy for all of you!

I truly feel a revolution is on the rise and a lot of us struggling cartoonists will be seeing some major success very soon. Keep your heads up and work hard. You have made the first huge hurdle by getting into print.

Good luck!!!
