    FoxTrot to Cease Dailies

    Kansas City, MO (12/05/2006) Bill Amends popular FoxTrot comic strip will go to a Sunday-only publication schedule as of Dec. 31, 2006, announced Universal Press Syndicate today. The last daily will be Saturday, Dec. 30. Reruns of dailies will be available for Web usage.

    After spending close to half of my life writing and drawing FoxTrot cartoons, I think its time I got out of the house and tried some new things, said Amend. I love cartooning and I absolutely want to continue doing the strip, just not at the current all-consuming pace. Ive been blessed over the years with a terrific syndicate, patient newspaper clients, and more support from readers than I probably deserve, and I want to assure them all that while Ill be now a less-frequent participant on the comics pages, Ill continue to treat my visits as the special privilege they are.

    Amend, who started the strip in April, 1988, and who has more than 1,000 client newspapers, is taking time to pursue other creative outlets. In addition to Sunday newspapers, we may see FoxTrot entertaining us in other kinds of media platforms, says Lee Salem, president and editor of Universal Press Syndicate.

    Amend has more than 30 published FoxTrot comic collections and has licensed his characters for calendars and wallpapers for cell phones. He was nominated in 2006 as a finalist for cartoonist of the year by the National Cartoonists Societys Reuben Award.


I'll miss this cartoon; Bill Amend has consistantly made me laugh over the past number of years with his humour and the pop culture references throughout his strips. While I'm glad he's not totally retiring...this still sucks.

If this involves Selectavision (en.wikipedia.org) I'm going to hurt people. Wonder what the local paper's going to put in its place, seeing as they already replaced the Boondocks with Baldo.

I think the alarm was for the inevitable TV series (which, odds are, will tank, as Foxtrot's closer to Baby Blues than the Boondocks).

It's too bad, but I'd rather see it cut back than see it continued with a new writer.

Baldo's so-so. We (Philly Inquirer) got this horrible strip called F-Minus replacing The Boondocks. I'd rather they have picked up Dilbert (probably cost to much $$$) or Frazz (which the local paper [instead of the Inquirer] carries).
