Comic Sunday

CATHY by Cathy Guisewite is one of my favorite comic strips. Cathy is a comic strip that deals with saving money, getting married and her relationship with her mother. Sounds like me!!

If you aren't familiar with this comic strip, here is some details on Cathy the comic strip from Wiki:

is a comic strip drawn by Cathy Guisewite. Featuring a woman who struggles through the "four basic guilt groups" of life — food, love, mom, and work — the strip gently pokes fun at the lives and foibles of modern women. Cathy's characteristics and issues both make fun of and sometimes feed into negative stereotypes about women. The strip debuted in November 1976, and at its peak appeared in over 1,400 newspapers. The strips have been collected into more than 20 books. Guisewite received the National Cartoonists Society Reuben Award in 1992 for the strip

Initially, the strip was based largely on Guisewite's own life as a single woman. However, Guisewite had Cathy's longtime boyfriend Irving propose marriage on Valentine's Day 2004. The two characters married in the February 5, 2005 strip. That same year, Cathy appeared in the 75th anniversary party of Blondie and Dagwood.

On August 11, 2010, Cathy Guisewite announced the "agonizing" decision to end the run of Cathy with the final strip to be published on October 3, 2010"

I am sad to hear that the comic strip will be over this year. I will be featuring my favorite Cathy comic strips every Sunday. This weeks comic is when Cathy got married to Irving. Click here to see a bigger image of the comic strip...CATHY 2/5/05..Enjoy!!
