Post Modern Candle in the Wind

The creator of wondermark, David Malki, retired his newsprint stained whites this weekend. As the Comic Strip Doctor, Malki tended to his patients with a keen analytical mind. His prescriptions for the likes of Cathy, Shoe and Garfield were of course ignored by his patients and I am sure the sight of them hanging around in the Emergency room became quite depressing. Malki says,
I don't even read newspaper comics anymore. So it's been a bit hard to get into the swing of things; each time I had wanted to write a new column I found myself dredging through online archives looking for the worst examples of Ziggy or whatever, and that's not how I want to spend another Saturday, ever.
You will be missed, Doc.
