Cory Thomas Ending Watch Your Head As Syndicated Feature; To Return As On-Line Only Strip In August

imageAlan Gardner at Daily Cartoonist caught that Cory Thomas is ending the syndicated run of his Watch Your Head at the end of the month; the strip will return in webcomics-only fashion in August. The strip will relocate here.

Watch Your Head got its start in the Howard University newspaper The Hilltop and mirrored Thomas' experiences as a student there (the setting of the strip was fictional). It was launched nationally by Washington Post Writers Group in 2006 and initially marketed as a potential replacement for the departing The Boondocks. Thomas' announcement on Facebook cites the small client list and general creative frustrations as instigating factors for the decision.

A first collection was published in 2008.
