Yikes! Who knew “Rex Morgan M.D.” still had so many faithful followers?
We’ve found out the past two days at the News Sentinel as fans of the strip have besieged the newspaper with irate phone calls and emails after we discontinued the comic on Monday. I’m sure the snail mail is on the way, too, but hasn’t hit yet.
I thought Rex’s day had passed and replaced him with a brand-new hip strip called “WuMo.” What a mistake! I admit it. Mea culpa. Please don’t call any more. We’re putting the Doc back. Rex will be resurrected in tomorrow’s paper. We’re still keeping “WuMo,” though. It’s a completely different style of comic strip, and a completely different group of readers will appreciate it.
