The Last Winston Strip

This is the final Winston strip. There's few things I like better than finding a strip that heralds its end date like this. Not only does it put a definite punctuation on the end of the run, but often the final strip reveals something personal and intimate about the cartoonist and their feelings about the event. Some take it sadly, as Jim Burnettte and Johnny Sajem do here, others put on a brave face, still others find it in themselves to laugh about the demise of their brainchild.

Allan, I enjoy this blog of yours. It is a wonderful thing you're doing. I really enjoyed this final strip. I liked this and similar gag strips of the era.
