The Reed Brennan/ Creators Syndicate announcement of Nest Heads ending was off by a day. Instead of ending on Friday, July 31 the comic strip ended on Saturday, August 1; which makes more sense. Creators, for the moment, is sitting on that last strip (a rerun from 2014):
While GoComics has begun the cycle over, going into their archives
for their first Nest Heads strip from 2003 (the strip began in 1998):
The last NEW Nest Heads comic strip remains the Sunday strip of July 12, 2020.
Also: I do not know what the circulation of Nest Heads was. The last mention of the strip that I find in the news was when the Portland Tribune dropped their comics page which included Nest Heads. That was 2018. Does anyone know of a newspaper printing the strip this year?

So what has changed? The Dog Eat Doug page has disappeared from the AMS features page:
