Another comic strip that went to the great beyond is Downstown by Tim Downs. It ran from 1974 to 1986. It was syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate. I found it clever and well drawn. But, alas, it went away. Tim Downs is still alive and kicking (you can find his site here). I don’t know why he gave it up, other than cartooning for a daily strip can be grueling and people can get pissy if they don’t like your cartoon for the day.
Anyway, here’s a sample of his work “Downstown”.
Some of his collections are still available.
