The End of Cul de Sac

Today is a sad day. It's the conclusion of one of the great comic strips, Cul de Sac. Richard Thompson has been suffering from Parkinson's disease and it's just become too much for him to handle. My love for the strip knows no bounds and my admiration for Thompson's skills as an artist and writer is immense.

All our thoughts and wishes are for your good health.

I certainly hope that someone notes the great devotion that many of us have for the strip and sees fit to publish in the coming years a hardcover slipcased volume collecting the entire run of the strip - similar to what we've seen happen with The Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes.
