04/17/2007 Archived Entry: "Comics news: Pibgorn update"
042007 Update: Pibgorn has a Live Journal for announcements and other news.
From Brooke McEldowney:
"With United Media's announcement that "Pibgorn" is to be discontinued, I have been inundated with e-mail, much of it agitated and distressed. I'm very sorry you had to get the news in this rather dispassionate way. That I may answer your central question forthwith, I've composed this response for everyone – so please forgive me if I seem impersonal.
"PIBGORN" WILL CONTINUE.
"There. That is the main thing I wanted to say. Comics.com, however, will, as they have announced, no longer be the source. Nothing dramatic happened, really. I simply came to feel that the editorial needs of comics.com and those of "Pibgorn" were becoming more and more divergent and incompatible. For this reason I asked to be released from my contract with United Media in order to secure a new online home for "Pibgorn." United Media most graciously, and reluctantly, agreed. In short order I hope to get Pib back up and flying.
"Meanwhile, you have seen the most current installments of "Pibgorn." Hold that thought. We'll be back.
"All best wishes, and thanks so very much for writing.
Whew! So hopefully we all won't be Pibgorn-less for too long. Don't forget the Pibgorn essay and McEldowney interview in J LHLS Issue 3 if you really need a Pib fix.

Please notify me when you arrange for "a new online home" for Pibgorn. Thanks.

Love both the strips. I'll post a link on my site to your new one when it comes active. You really capture the essentials of the feminine form.
