Frog Mortality


Today Mark Heath's Spot the Frog makes his last apperance in the newspapers, and the world becomes a sadder place. For the last few weeks Spot went meta when the tiny, mostly-amphibious cast discovered a pair of 3-D glasses and, looking through them, began to discern a larger world beyond the confines of their panels. It was an elegant, funny and darkly philosophical way to end a fine strip, and it's one I'll miss.
An updated note: comics.com is now running the earliest strips from their archive. After you look at the last Spot, jump to the first ones and watch Spot jump five full years into the past.

This was as close to "Calvin" as anybody's got, or probably anybody's gonna get. I'm sad to see it go.

Jason, the closest I've approached C&H is my occasional trip to the bookshelf where I keep the collections. But thanks for the kind words.
