Happy new year

Two silent penultimate panels found this first day of the year.

Pooch Cafe by Paul Gilligan
Sherman's Lagoon by Jim Toomey

And with what did the L.A. Times replace Foxtrot? Tundra by Chad Carpenter. It looks to be your standard YAWSP cartoon. (Yet Another Wacky Single Panel.) I'm totally unfamiliar with it; for now I'll just have to wait and see.

Funny you should mention it! The Boston Globe replaced Foxtrot with Pooch Cafe, a comic I'm totally unfamiliar with, except for all the SPP's, and also being yet another poorly drawn comic with a talking pet.

Tundra is notable because it's self-syndicated, meaning it's not distributed by a syndicate, but rather, distributed independentally by the cartoonist.

The fact that he managed to sell the strip to a big newspaper is amazing.

Not sure if you're familiar with this one - heck, I read it daily and am still not familiar with it - but he's been trying to get into your blog for a while now. Jan 1's strip is perfect; have a look-see:

Dog Eat Doug

Does it count if you have no penultimate panel whatsoever?

I guess I'm lucky. The Rocky here in Denver replaced Fox Trot with Diesel Sweeties. Now I read it twice a day!

The San Francisco Chronicle, which has a terrible comics page, replaced Foxtrot with Lio. They also added a comic called Bliss which is by a frequent contributor to the New Yorker.

I'm guessing the extra strip replaces the comic sized ad for the Chronicle that wasted good comic strip space on the page.
