Little Orphan Annie strip to end

Raise your hand if you were under the notion her strip ended a few decades ago.

After 85 years, her strip–which has only been in select newspapers for the past few years–is being pulled from the comic section. Instead she will be transformed into an internet comic strip, in hoped of alluring new fans! I do like Annie, but I simply don’t see her appeal to kids these days. I just don’t think she can hold up to say, Archie, who has proven to be able to maintain a steady readership for 60+ years.

However, I wish her all the best, and I hope that at some point in time she gets a set of pupils.
