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:
Iâ€™ve been delaying this decision for weeks now. In many ways, since July when my marriage came to an end, Iâ€™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.
Iâ€™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 iâ€™ll return to this universe soon enough. But for now, I just donâ€™t have it in me to keep it going just for the sake of doing so. I donâ€™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.
