Health News: Brians Bassett & Duffy; Mike Shelton?

The Red and Rover comic strip has been in daily rerun status for a month, since May 23, 2022.
Darryl Heine, who tracks comic strip reruns like we track Good Humor Man movements, contacted creator Brain Bassett to ask what was going on.

Brian replied:

I had cancer surgery to remove tumors from my pancreas and spleen. I will be recovering for the next two months at least.

Elsewhere it’s been two and a half months since editorial cartoonist Brian Duffy last posted a cartoon. (Though he did post one to social media a few weeks ago.)

A commenter on Brian’s Comics Kingdom page contacted Brian in May:

I reached out to him thru his site a week or so ago. He’s not doing well. For those of us who believe in prayer, adding him might be good.

Which brings us to Mike Shelton, who also has not posted a cartoon recently,
his last was dated May 21, 2022.Whether he is ill or retired is unknown.
We wrote to him but have not gotten any reply to our inquiry.
