[ Edited 12 May, 2021 to add ] The comic strip Buckles is being archived and rerun at GoComics. No word on exactly why it ended, although the cartoonist mentions having ideas for new projects.
[ Edited 8 April 2021 to add ] Everything below was true when I wrote it, in August 2020. Since then things changed. The comic strip ended abruptly in March of 2021. I have not yet heard why Buckles ended. Nor have I heard whether it was the choice of cartoonist David Gilbert or the syndicate or both. Should I learn anything I will pass it along.
Like I say, there’s nothing particular going on with David Gilbert’s comic strip Buckles. Not that I’ve heard about, anyway. This isn’t at all important but there’s been so much comic strip news around here lately I felt like it’s a shame not to keep it going.
