Ack! Cathy Guisewite’s ‘Cathy’ Comic Strip to End in October

After 35 years of being relatable to a readership I imagine I have very little in common with, Cathy Guisewite’s “Cathy” comic strip will come to a close on October 3. As reported by The Daily Cartoonist, the Universal Uclick syndicated strip will wrap up in more than 1,400 papers (and online), leaving its creator free to spend time with her family and pursue new projects.

Universal Uclick’s interview with Guisewite opened my eyes to the creator’s more or less overnight success and manic rush to hone her cartooning skills while working a day job in advertising. It’s honestly a pretty endearing story of the average employee breaking free from their career to follow a dream even if, as Guisewite says, “I’ve loved creating something that helps women feel they’re not alone. I’ve loved creating something that men will never completely understand.”

You’re right on the money Ms. Guisewite, but you seem like a cool lady no matter how baffling I’ve found your unique brand of sweat beads and protruding tongues over the years.
