So, yes, as of last Monday, the 14th, we’re getting daily Shoe strips signed as by Susie MacNelly and Ben Lansing. Lansing has been assisting with the strip for a long while, which may be why the change in art was hardly noticeable. There are some more Gary Brookins-drawn Sunday strips for Shoe still in the pipeline, but that’ll be it.
So far as I know, this is the first time that the regular cartoonists for Shoe and Pluggers have been different people. Pluggers had been drawn alternately by Gary Brookins and Rick McKee for several months before Brookins finally retured from it a month ago.
Also, D D Degg, at the Daily Cartoonist, reports that Bruce Tinsley is returning to Mallard Fillmore. The strip had been in reruns from November 2019 through March 2020, when Loren Fishman took over. So we can expect to transition from not reading Mallard Fillmore by Loren Fishman back to not reading Mallard Fillmore by Bruce Tinsley in the next couple weeks.
