R.F.D. Ends

Rural Free Delivery continues for those of you in the hinterlands,

but the R.F.D. comic strip by Mike Marland has delivered its last new comic strip this week.

King Features and Mike announced the ending a month ago, so it’s not unexpected (as another may be).

Whether reruns will be offered from the King Features Weekly Service is not yet known.

Below are the dates of the strip to the best I can glean from sources.
