Changes to the Comics pages

October 2, 2010 |  6:00 am

Beginning Sunday, The Times will introduce some changes to its Comics pages. These are prompted by the ending of "Cathy," whose creator, Cathy Guisewite, is retiring.

The final "Cathy" is in Saturday's Calendar section. Beginning Sunday, "Stone Soup" will replace "Cathy" in the Sunday Comics. "Stone Soup" currently appears Monday-Saturday.

On Monday, The Times will add the KenKen puzzle as a replacement for "Cathy." "Rex Morgan, M.D." also is being dropped to make room for the new puzzle.
