You can't just say things are iconic and think it makes it true.
>>
Strip purists will insist it ended years ago.

My paper never carried it

Sorry.
>>
>>77706019

That's pretty anti-climactic for a final strip.
>>
>>77706036
You should have seen Little Orphan Annie's last strip. The bitch is still kidnapped by pirates!

>>No /co/ threads about it

It's just too depressing to follow. And not in the Funky Winkerbean depressing way either.

actually she was kidnapped by a mass murderer
>>
>>77706068
That's so much worse.

>>77706068
Well at least Dick Tracy resolved it
>>
>>77706073
Really?
>>
>>77706068

Christ. They couldn't have just planned to wrap up that storyline when they decided to end the strip?
>>
>>77706079

Dick Tracy did some homage to it, but no one takes that seriously.
>>
>>77706073
No, I think that was Jon Darling's murder he solved
>>
>>77706079
Yeah. They had a crossover a few years back. Tracy helps Warbucks find Annie.

Dick Tracy had a bunch of crossovers, there was a Gasoline Alley one and a Funky Winkerbean one, and there was even a reference to Buckaroo Banzai.
>>
>>77706091
They were hoping for a last-moment stay of execution, probably because that dumbass Annie movie was in the pipe.
>>
>>77706101
Nah that was Les, Dick Tracy didn't have anything to do with that case.
>>
>>77706091
The cancellation was sudden so there was no time to replace the remaining strips with a final resolution.
>>
>>77706103
storytime please?
>>
>>77706110
>>77706113

I was under the impression that long-running strips like that were basically a lifetime gig, kept running out of tradition more than anything. Who decided it would be canceled so suddenly? This is interesting to me.
>>
>>77706142
If we must go to wiki for this...
>The strip's popularity declined over the years; it was running in only 20 newspapers when it was cancelled on June 13, 2010.
Guess the thought of continuing it online wasn't an option at the time.
>>
>>77706180
It was online on Gocomics though, but I guess for some reason they didn't decide to continue it there.

Brenda Starr> Apartment 3-G

The lettering on that strip is just terrible! Was Bolle doing it himself? Was Bolle even still doing it? They could have gotten better results typesetting it.

Sometimes a strip just needs to be euthanized and this was one.

Because the only remarkable thing about 3-G over the past year was Bolle's obvious decline as an artist, and that was too depressing to discuss at much length.
>>77706103
The Phantom and Mary Worth had a sort-of crossover for a week or so. Mary and The Phantom's daughter shared a New York cab. That's it.
>>77706533
At least Brenda's last strip had some pathos. 3-G just had... nothing.
>>77706569
Maybe he insisted on doing the lettering; he's 91 and it's his last ever strip, let him have his moment.
>>
Wait, it ended? I was reading regularly a few months ago when I started my new job and didn't have computer access for a month and didn't have much else to do besides read the newspaper. The girl was going crazy and her ex-boyfriend who was thought dead in an avalanche in Tibet came back but was all Buddhist now and was trying to get her help. She rejects him and that's it?
I should have kept with it. What a weird strip.
