    Thanks Tallstar! I've read his blog post before. Glad Connie Schurr stuck up for herself there.

    As jmb410s says, this guy did not have the complete run. He believed the strip only ran for a year which is inaccurate. The strip ran for over four years. You can see a script page above from the strip's final storyline, "The Last Survivors," and it says "Week Two Hundred Thirty-Six." This thing ran for quite a long time and continued on from MOTU into New Adventures.

    Incidentally, it's neat that one of the strips he has on his Stripper's Guide blog features a vehicle that resembles The Collector from Filmation:

    Artist Gerald Forton and some of his original artwork from the strips! Sorry photo quality is crummy.

    As for news, Chris and Karen talked to Gerald and Connie about touching up some of the old strips. They want to find and partner with an interested publisher in order to make it happen. There was some confusion about publishing rights, though I'm fairly certain it'd fall under Mattel's earlier deal with Classic Media. If all else fails, they have some ideas about sharing these with fans online and we talked about some ways to do that. Hope it happens!
