Boondocks Hiatus Pushes Up Debut

The Washington Post Writer's Group will push up the debut of Cory Thomas' Watch Your Head to match the dates of Aaron McGruder's six-month hiatus from The Boondocks, Editor & Publisher reports. This is interesting both in the general notion that because McGruder is taking a break this may mean papers will try out a substitute strip rather than that many consecutive reruns, showing how tight prime space in papers has become, and also because the move may remind many of how Berke Breathed's Bloom County benefited as a temporary replacement for Doonesbury when Garry Trudeau took the first such creative break some 20-25 years ago.
