"Great News Chums"

Colours (Wow!) by Nika

That line, "Great News Chums" appeared on the front page of many a comic in the Twentieth Century, and always the 'great news' was that from the next week the reader would be obliged to transfer their affection to a different title, as publication of their present favourite was being cancelled.

For the last 10 months I've had to avoid reading all the threads on Comics websites prophesying the imminent demise of a particular comic. Only last week I was asked "how long before it merges with Another Comic?" Over the last year or so I've been told, yes TOLD, by various people that it will soon be a monthly; that it will soon be Reprints Only; that it will soon be gone forever; that it stopped being published years ago.
Anyhow, keep watching this blog (of course! Why wouldn't you?!) and you may see there could soon be "Great News Chums".
