Dandy & Company Goes On Indefinite Hiatus

Just yesterday, creator Derrick Fish announced on his website that he could not find the inspiration to keep writing Dandy & Company.

He explains further on his site:

I’ve been delaying this decision for weeks now. In many ways, since July when my marriage came to an end, I’ve been trying really hard to keep my energy and creativity up on a story that has so much to do with my married life.

I’ve been working with Dandy, Bernard and the gang for over 20 years now in one way or another, and I have no doubt that i’ll return to this universe soon enough. But for now, I just don’t have it in me to keep it going just for the sake of doing so. I don’t want the strip or the characters to suffer, and the best way to do that is to step away from it for a while.

Wandering webcomic ronin. Created Comixpedia (2002-2005) and ComixTalk (2006-2012; 2016-?). Made a lot of unfinished comics and novels.


  1. However, I do want to recommend that everyone watch for Derrick’s new project which should be coming out soon! I have seen some preliminary stuff and it looks great!

  2. I wondered if this would be happening given what Derrick has gone through this year. Hopefully his latest project will pan out into something positive that he can pour his energy into.

    Hang in there Derrick, it’ll get better eventually man.
