    I was a really big fan of the strip so I'm hoping when it returns that it's not a pale shadow of it's former self.

    Awesome. Berke Breathed proved it could be done.

    Yes, I've been saying for a while that Far Side should follow in Bloom County's footsteps (I even worked it into my own web comic at some point). But that little teaser has been on the site for weeks now with no further developments. Technically, it has not been confirmed that it will involve any new material.

    That's very disappointing, but it's kind of what I feared. Not even a hint of interest in doing new stuff. :(

    Damn. Put me in the "I was hoping for new stuff" camp. Officially 'bummed' by this news... :sigh: :weep:

    According to the CNN article:

    But I have no idea where they got that.

    It's just another pointless article that already tells us what we know and gives us no idea of where they found out Larson will be doing new ones from time-to-time. It's pretty much click bait.

    He is doing new comics. But no deadline. They will be placed at random on the site

    Yep, the site has finally been updated. And is painfully slow, and loaded wrong on the first try. :rommie:
