I don't know if I should be happy or sad... I mean, his comics were terrible monstrosities, but he's still a person...

As much as I DESPISE Family Circus, you gotta tip your hat to this guy for staying in a business as fickle as the newspaper comic strip for as long as he did, without ever straying from what he believed was right.

Another one of the great old cartoonists has left us. RIP.

The fact people are celebrating someone's death just because he drew a comic they didn't like saddens me.

Frequently when I go, "that's exactly what I wanted to say" I see that Necrosis1193 has said it before me.

I know, Crunk... shame on all those people who actually like Family Circus! I mean... they unwittingly kept a comic strip going because they have no idea what we're supposed to like when we turn to the comic pages.

First of all, we're not celebrating, we're rejoicing. Second of all, I don't dislike his comic, I abhor it.

If you didn't give a fuck you wouldn't be lamenting over the people who celebrate the deaths of others.

That's not what I'm not giving a fuck about. What I'm not giving a fuck about is your nitpicking definitions.

Comics were a huge part of my childhood, so it sucks that the creator of a notable one has passed. No matter how old a person is, it’s never easy to deal with death, so I wish the best for his family.


That said, good lord Family Circus was AWFUL. Such an annoyingly cheesy comic strip that seemed stuck in the 50’s.

This may be one of those one in a million times where we agree on something.

The fact that someone you never knew, met, probably didn't even know the name of saddens you, saddens me. People die every day, who cares about this guy unless a) you knew him or his family or b) you liked his work. It's people like you who cry over someone they never knew that tarnishes their memory.

I neither knew his family and I HATED his work, so this is no concern to me.

I knew Seanbaby's recaptions would turn up in this thread. Sure, Keane was another human too, and so I can't really be happy about this, but I can't think of any better way to "mourn" him.

Lol at people who think his comics are going away, this is exactly what will happen:

RIP, I never cared for his comics, but obviously they meant something to a lot of people considering how long they've been around.

No disrespect intend, I hope they give his newspaper space to an up-and-coming cartoonist instead of rehashing old Family Circus comics.
