Legacy strips

It looks like we have five silent penultimate panels for this Sunday:

Andy Capp by Roger Mahoney and Roger Kettle
Frazz by Jef Mallett
Hi and Lois by Brian and Greg Walker
Luann by Greg Evans
Peanuts (1959 reprint) by Charles Schulz

Most of today's are from legacy strips--either reprints or strips continued by their syndicates without the original creator. Unlike most, I really don't have a problem with that practice--in theory. It's fairly common in the comics world (when was the last time a Batman comic book was written by Bob Kane?) As long as it's good and funny, why not? Of course, good and funny in today's cases really only applies to the Peanuts reprint. I certainly could do without any more Hi and Loises in my life.
