John Scully's Comic Strip Has A Finale Every Day
Newspaper comic strips tend to run pretty long, so when they finally do end, it's usually a big deal. You get things like the end of Little Orphan Annie, which capped off its 84-year run by having Annie kidnapped and in dire peril, and when Tom Batiuk's John Darling ended, he had the lead character literally murdered on-panel, sparking a mystery that would be solved years later in Funky Winkerbean. Unlike superhero comics, though, where cancellations and relaunches are a pretty common occurrence, you can really only do the final installment of a newspaper strip once. Unless, that is, you're John Scully, who launched The Comic Strip That Has A Finale Every Day on May 1, and has been running a strip where a cast of characters bids farewell to their readers every day. The same strip. The exact same strip.
