Shoe Bids Farewell to Plugger Gary Brookins

As announced earlier this year Gary Brookins has decided to retire from the daily grind.
It appears he has timed his last dailies to fall on the same August 22, 2020 day.


Before moving on Plugger Gary gave youngster Rick McKee some advice yesterday.

Elsewhere on today’s comics page the Treetops Tattler crew says farewell to Gary.

Ben Lansing should begin signing the Monday August 24, 2020 Shoe.

As for Sundays – I don’t know when the last Brookins’ signatures will occur.
I do know that Gary will be doing the old soft Shoe for a few more Sundays.

But as Gary says in his Pluggers above – keep in touch with him at Brookinsart.


August 24 update

Welp, Gary continues to sign the daily Shoe after the farewell strip.

  1. Well, as a “Plugger” myself, was very saddened to hear that the comic strip will no longer be a part of our daily lives.

    My husband and I always looked forward to see which one of us would be made an example of on any given day. There were times that we could recognize both of us in one strip.

    Gary Brookins…farewell and good luck!

  2. Gonna Miss You and the Pluggers. I could relate to a lot of those cartoons. Good Luck on whatever your plans are.
