The latest end of the new-ruins

In the latest newsletter, Lynn made the following statement:

“I'm doing well over 50% new material [to supplement the older strips] in order to bring the story around to the time when it can run on its own. The transition will be in the early spring and until then, count on LOTS of brand new work!!”

What this means, of course, is that she needs six more months to fill in the plot holes that she created during the first year of the new format. Given that we’ve been given a fairly inadequate and unsatisfactory explanation for Deanna’s premature disappearance and subsequent reappearance, a version of the “John hires Elly as Jean’s replacement that rewrote the original arc almost entirely, filler strips that handwave away the premature arrival of Farley, a Mike that acts like a different sort of whiny, entitled little creep and that we have to somehow convince Connie that Phil thinks of her as a potential mate as well as expand on Elly’s night school in a manner that not only demonizes John but also increases her martyrdom, we can look forward to six more months of lousy material and gaping plot holes before she decides that it isn’t really strong enough and continues onward.
