#331 The End of the Road for “Cul de Sac”

As Richard Thompson’s strip Cul de Sac ends, Tom Spurgeon joins Tim to bid it a fond farewell. We discuss some favorite moments, compare it with other classic strips such as Peanuts, examine what Thompson (and any other relatively new creator of newspaper strips) has been up against as technology and economics team up against print media, and — Hey! Watch out for the UH-OH BABY!!

  1. Alice has her trike to carry her forward, Petey has his ongoing dioramas, but what are the rest of us supposed to do? Compilations, maybe…
    Thank you!

  2. Oh Richard, oh oh — as a puppeteer retiring after 40 glorious years, I think I know how you feel. I miss the kids, I miss the applause, most of all, I miss bringing inantimate objects to life with my hands. Will miss you tragically! Pat W.
