The meaning of the new-runs

As you may have noticed, there has been a steady and predictable-looking decline in the amount of new material seen each month. It may be that Lynn simply decided to take an extended Christmas holday and will insert an extended set of new-run strips as she feels they're needed so as to make her promised quota or it may be that she feels that the story is getting strong enough on its own that we can go to straight reprints all the time. If it is indeed the latter option, the only thing I can say is that it took long enough. We've all seen that the new-runs add little to the understanding of the past; they either repeat what we know or distort the historical record to match what Lynn thinks now. It's probably too late to drop this silly experiment owing to the damage having been done to the characters but the sooner it happens, the less harm need be made up for.
