Some terrible news from my good friend Mark Heath – Spot the Frog, a rare laugh in the comics pages anymore, will be ending July 5.
To quote Mark:
This will be six monthâ€™s shy of the five year contract. The reason is the usual one: too few client papers, the need to earn money to replace my missing socks. I spoke with United Media and they were sympathetic to my odd sock fetish.
You’ll have to read more to get the sock reference.
It just kills me when good work like this isn’t given its due. Spot is funny, clever, sweet & kind. The papers and syndicate never knew what a gem of a strip they had.
Mark is considering a third book if there’s enough interest. I know I’m interested, and you should be too.
Sign up here. And harangue your papers for not picking it up when they had the chance.
