Doctor Fun, my favorite single-panel cartoon, is done running. Only now do I learn that David Farley, the author and artist, planned to run it for exactly 10 years. It took him more than ten years to get the requisite 520 weeks done, and those were five-day weeks, as opposed to seven-day weeks, but still… it’s over.
And the “it’s over” announcement falls on the 6th anniversary of Schlock launching. Great. Now I have GUILT.
At my current rate, I’ll “catch up” with David Farley on July 25th of 2007. But how can anyone “catch up” with the very first webcomic? Because, you know, that’s what Doctor Fun WAS. The very first webcomic. *sigh*.
