It’s been a terrible year for comic strip heroines. First, Little Orphan Annie was abandoned by papers in June (mid-kidnapping even!), then Cathy got knocked up — and off the funny pages — in October, and yesterday, after 70 years, Brenda Starr quit the newspaper business. Watch your back, Mary Worth.

“Cathy,” a staple of funny pages and comedian punchlines for 34 years, came to an end on Sunday. Here is the final strip.
After all that complaining, to be married and pregnant at 34 — not bad, Cathy, not bad.

In honor of those going home for the holidays and taking a friend we re-present BG’s New Adventure featuring BAD BOY! When this story was originally scripted in December 2000, the hijinks ensued over a holiday meal; When it was retooled last year for Lifetime Mobile, the story was shortened to five pages and the holiday angle was taken out so it would be readable at any time of year. Today we link to the finished story, AND for the first time anywhere I am sharing one of my original Breakup Girl scripts (below). Happy Thanksgiving!
