Cathy Guisewite Ends 34 Years Old Cathy Comic Strip!

 It’s hard to believe that something that you have seen exist all your life suddenly comes to an end; especially if that something is what you spend a minute of your day on. I’m talking about the Cathy comic Strip that won the hearts of many comic fans and worked its magic on the regular followers who were interested in the daily adventures of the romantically challenged lead character in the strip.

According to Cathy Guisewite, creator of the Cathy comic, the comic strip is officially coming to an end on 3rd October 2010. In an interview with Chicago tribune, Cathy Guisewite expressed her inner struggle that she had been facing for a quite a while now. As per the statement of the artist, if she did not quit now that she was 59 years of age, when will be the right time to do so?

After deciding to withdraw from her drawing board, the creator of the 34 years old comic strip felt that she made the right decision as she wanted to pursue other creative interests and also spend maximum time with her family.

Cathy Guisewite wants to be able to frequently meet up with her aging parents and her 18 years old daughter who live in Florida. Comic book Cathy used to struggle with relationships, weight and work; she’s going to be sorely missed!
