Haya kef Pajama Diaries

Newspaper comics readers might notice something different in their papers when browsing the funnies.

The space where Jill Kaplan, a Jewish mother and wife living in Ohio with her family, experienced everyday life but with a humorous, modern twist in “The Pajama Diaries” for about 14 years will be replaced with panels of another adventure.

The comic’s creator, Terri Libenson, retired the sketched family that appeared in hundreds of newspapers across the globe from Cleveland to Toronto to Sacramento, Calif., to New Dehli Jan. 4 to focus her efforts on penning her middle grade-age series “Emmie & Friends.”

The Cleveland Jewish News talks to Terri Libenson about after The Pajama Diaries.
