Fun Sundry Funnies for Sunday

We’ll start with a small bit of news:

Marvel Comics and King Features Syndicate are now rerunning the reruns.

Above opening panels from left to right: November 16, 2014, March 24, 2019, and July 30, 2023.

The Amazing Spider-Man comic strip is now on a four year, four month rotation. When the newspaper strip first went on hiatus in 2019 they held out a carrot saying, “We’ll be back soon with great new stories and art.” Those plans seems to have evaporated.

So The Amazing Spider-Man now joins Flash Gordon in an eternal rotation, though Jim Keefe’s Flash has a decent seven year, two month revolution. Plans to return may be why MC/KFS didn’t go deeper into the archives.

  1. So Hi and Lois live in Connecticut? Wilton is not that far from NYC so it shouldn’t take them a few hours to get there from the train station, unless there is a Metro North delay.
