|I always liked Pibgorn -- it was a beautiful strip, even if its plotlines were pretty much impossible to follow. But if you want plotlines, read <i>Mary Worth</i>.
Clearly McEldowney was overextended doing both this strip and <i>9 Chickweed Lane</i>, and obviously <i>Chickweed</i> pays the bills.
I just found this on <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki /Pibgorn_(webcomic)">Wikipedia's Pibgorn listing</a>:
<blockquote>With United Media’s announcement that “Pibgorn” is to be discontinued, I have been inundated with e-mail, much of it agitated and distressed. I’m very sorry you had to get the news in this rather dispassionate way. That I may answer your central question forthwith, I’ve composed this response for everyone – so please forgive me if I seem impersonal.
“PIBGORN” WILL CONTINUE.
There. That is the main thing I wanted to say. Comics.com, however, will, as they have announced, no longer be the source. Nothing dramatic happened, really. I simply came to feel that the editorial needs of comcs.com and those of “Pibgorn” were becoming more and more divergent and incompatible. For this reason I asked to be released from my contract with United Media in order to secure a new online home for “Pibgorn.” United Media most graciously, and reluctantly, agreed. In short order I hope to get Pib back up and flying.
Meanwhile, you have seen the most current installments of “Pibgorn.” Hold that thought. We’ll be back.
All best wishes, and thanks so very much for writing.</blockquote>
So that explains why Comics.com immediately pulled the archives.
