Former Baltimore Sun Cartoonist Retires from Syndication

From Rob Tornoe:
Former Baltimore Sun cartoonist Mike Lane has announced that he will stop drawing editorial cartoons for syndication. Lane took a buyout from The Sun back in 2004.

From Daryl Cagle, cartoonist for and owner of the Cagle Cartoons syndicate:

"I'm saddened to write that one of the great editorial cartoonists has decided to retire. Mike Lane, who drew for the Baltimore Sun for decades and was one of the very first cartoonists to form our little syndicate, is calling it quits."

Mike stopped drawing early last month when he was slated for open heart surgery

Baltimore Comic-Con - Wrightson interview and more

Baltimore Sun drops comics

Alan Gardener at the Daily Cartoonist has the story on the Baltimore Sun dropping a page of comics. Alan links to the Comics Curmudgeon's blog too.

Christopher Skokna of the Baltimore City Paper specifically mourns Zippy and also demands Our Man Thompson's Cul de Sac.

After they let KAL go, can there be any surprise in news like this?
