Comic Strip of the Week - Haunted House

The last Comic Strip of the Week we ran as many strips as weeks in an entire month, and it made me so tired, I had to take a month off. But we are back! This month is "Scary Scarlet" and every week, we'll spotlight a time when Scarlet was mistaken for a ghost! Sometimes it was on purpose, such as the first time it occurred in 1941. Scarlet was writing a newspaper column giving "Advice to the Lovelorn." In October of that year, she came to the aid of a husband wanting to get rid of his mother-in-law, not by killing her but by scaring her.

Aack! No More Cathy!

We congratulate Cathy Guisewite and her incredible 34-year run in newspapers worldwide. You can read the final Cathy comic strip at and read a couple of well written articles regarding her retirement at The Beat and NewsOK. With no more Cathy nor Annie featured on comic pages, maybe it is time for Scarlet to make a comeback to keep Brenda Starr, Mary Worth and Luann company!
