The final Cathy comic strip ran today, and it’s a sweet, classy goodbye, with a nod to the generation the strip came from and a look forward with Cathy announcing her pregnancy. We get a little sentimental about this kind of ending — one that hints at the unfolding of a whole new story, but one that will only ever be written in our own imaginations.
In August, creator Cathy Guisewite announced she was ending the strip in order to spend more time with her own daughter.
