Is Aaron McGruder AWOL?
Toward the end of Mike Peters column that I referenced in an earlier post, was this line:
Will The Boondocks return? I’ve said yes all along, but the silence from the syndicate and the lack of an announced restart date is enough to rake all bets off the table.
The good news: Mr. McGruder has defied virtually every deadline in his life. He may wonder what all the fuss is about. So cross your fingers, but don’t hold your breath.
It surprised me that Universal hasn’t started up the promotional machinary in as much as Boondocks has lost up to two-thirds of its subscribing clients. According to Kathie Kerr, Universal’s Assistant VP/Communications, they are still expecting Aaron’s return, but have not heard from him or his agents and as such, no date for relaunching the feature has not been set.
