wait… the strip is ENDING?!
And I was about to ask a question.
NOOOOOOO! But if you’re serious about the Shagg Dolls…
Ask Shagg was a syndicated daily comic strip drawn by cartoonist Peter Guren from 1980 to 2020.1 It was distributed by Creators Syndicate; it had been distributed by United Feature Syndicate from 1980 until 1995.2 The strip has run in dozens of newspapers including The Boston Globe, The Columbus Dispatch, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.2 In each strip Guren, through his Shagg E. Dawg character, answered questions from readers about the animal kingdom. The strip retired on the 5th of January, 2020.3
The day after The Pajama Diaries runs its last strip, this strip ends as well.
Alas. My mom had started reading it mere months ago. At least I got a Shagg doll while I had the chance.
Congratulations on a great run with Ask Shagg, Peter! I will miss seeing Shagg’s smiling face, gentle humor and informative responses to pet questions. Best wishes for the next chapter of your life!
Will the archives be run?
Wow. So surprised to hear Shagg is ending. A shame, since it’s always been such a fun, positive strip. Kinda like the Birdbrains comic on this site also ended recently. Bummer.
Thanks for all the smiles, Peter, and I hope to see some reruns here on GoComics. Stay in touch.
Loved reading the strip over the past few years, Peter / Shagg! Wish you all the very best for the future. Cheers from India!
Thank you all for being there!!
I hope GoComics will print re-runs.
I was hoping they’d do re-runs. But it looks like they won’t be. I wish they’d take it down, then.
Oh no … whhhhhyyyyy
