Comic Strip of the Week - Little Orphans

Yesterday, after 86 years in newspapers around the globe, the last Little Orphan Annie comic strip was published. You can see the final strip at There are plenty of online articles detailing the importance of Annie in American comics, and I do recommend in particular Phil Rosenthal's column in the Chicago Tribune. Although she was published in the crosstown rival newspaper, we salute Annie's incredible run and humbly offer this week's strip featuring Scarlet's encounter with an orphan not nearly as nice, Beansie. Leaping Lizards Scarlet, be careful playing cupid! You don't have a trusty dog like Sandy to save you!
