In the very first panel we see the logo for Little Orphan Annie. The actual comic strip, updated to just "Annie" was abruptly discontinued on June 13, 2010. Here's the final sequence:
And so it ended, with Annie being spirited off into the Guatemalan interior by a war criminal on the run -- fate unknown.

March 24, 2014
March 26, 2014
March 27, 2014
Harold Gray's characters return -- not on the comics page where that first Sunday panel suggested, but actually in the world of Dick Tracy. Which, we hope, will mean that the saga of Annie will finally get the conclusion the strip deserved.
But there's yet a third comics-related storyline in the current sequence, as we'll see in Part 3.
