Do you know what today is??? Today is the end and farewell to the much beloved comic strip, Cathy. Goodbye dear Cathy and creator Cathy Guisewite, you've brought a lifetime of smiles to all of us!
We were very fortunate to see Cathy Guisewite several years ago on a panel at our wonderful Festival of Books here in Los Angeles. Her panel mates were the awesome Berkeley Breathed (of Bloom County, Opus, etc.), Lalo Alcaraz (of La Cucaracha), Jerry Scott (of Zits) and I'm blanking on the fifth person. ARGH or I should say ACK! This panel is one of my favorite memories from the many years of panels, we laughed for a whole hour straight. So much fun.
Possibly my favorite comic strip ever, Mutts, has a tribute to Cathy this morning, so sweet.
We'll all be missing you Cathy!
