Post dropping B.C. and Wizard of Id after cartoonists' deaths

Washington Post Monday, May 28, 2007; Page C10

Beginning June 4, we will be adding two of our Sunday only comic strips to our daily lineup. "Sherman's Lagoon" and "Lio" will now run every day. The same day, we will drop "B.C." and "The Wizard of Id" from our daily pages. "Wizard of Id" will still run on Sundays. Johnny Hart, who created "B.C.," and Brant Parker, who co-created "The Wizard of Id" with Hart, died in April. Both "B.C." and "The Wizard of Id," now being done by family members, will still be available on our Web site, As always, we welcome your comments. See our "Comics Feedback" contact information above "Garfield" on Page C11.

Lio is the hot ticket in comic strips these days. I figured they'd put it in the daily line up after the Sundays were picked up.

As long as they don't cave and reinstate Mary Worth.

I've liked what I've seen of Lio on Sundays. Some people in the rest of the country have complained it's too dark.
