Hi, Annie orphans and other Annie fans - If you didn't already know, you can read (for free, at that!) the Annie comic strip in its early 2000s run by Jay Maeder over at https://www.gocomics.com/annie. It's lots of fun, and can inspire some intriguing thoughts about what an Annie musical that hewed closer to the source material might have ended up being like.

In the story that's currently running, Annie is having a dream in which she, Warbucks, and Sandy look as they did in Harold Gray's orginal version (which is, of course, the look reproduced in most productions of the musical).

Happy New Year to all!

GO COMICS has a function where you can go back and read all the strips from around 2001 to the end in 2010 present reprinting. So about about a year of the post Leonard Starr era strips are currently unavailable.

Plus Annie and the rest of the characters return in DICK TRACY for several guest appearances starting in 2014 (Resolving the cliffhanger when the strip ended.) Most recent was a couple of years ago which also featured the long-awaited return of Brenda Starr, another Tribune character who's strip ended.

I have seen those. And I would pay good money for an Orphan Annie - Dick Tracy crossover movie! (Not as famliar with Brenda Starr, though I recognize the name - but why not include her, too!?) :)
