Hey, "Boondocks" Comic Fans

Posted By on Tue, Sep 26, 2006 at 8:18 AM

Bad news: Aaron McGruder does not appear to be resuming his strip anytime soon. I learned this yesterday, when Universal Press Syndicate called and said that "Boondocks" would not be back, as was expected.

We picked up the strip right around the launch of the Iraq War in 2003, and ran it until McGruder announced he was going on what was supposed to be a six-month hiatus. Of course, considering he has a Boondocks TV show now on Cartoon Network, and considering doing a daily strip can be a major grind, his lack of a return can't be a total surprise.

So, we at the Weekly are debating what to do with that space, currently occupied by "The Last Days of Roland and Cid" and "Tom the Dancing Bug." If you have any thoughts, let me know.
