Seperate from the COMIC STRIP RERUN WEEK THREADS, this is a thread dealing with the occassional few times a week to maybe a full week of the comic strip Candorville (like WPWG has put Pickles in a few times a week reruns mixed in with new strips) - some with COVID face masks added in?.

To start off: Today's Candorville Feb. 9, 2021 daily strip is a rerun from 2019 (COVID face masks included on characters).

By the way, Candorville is done by Darrin Bell. Hope he didn't turn into a Brian Crane or maybe a Darby "Get Fuzzy - I wish Andrews McMeel withdrew the all 7 days a week rerun mode strip from papers for good" Conley.

Today's Candorville Feb. 10, 2021 daily strip is another 2019 rerun (COVID face mask added on 1 character).

I guess the last 2 weeks and maybe this week and forseeable weeks to come the Candorville strips were all new fresh 2021 strips.

I actually asked Darren about this. He told me that the syndicate is
re-lettering strips to make them seem current, but he is not actually
involved. No new art is done, nor is he (or the original writer of these
strips) consulted.

And believe it or not, the off and on few days a week Candorville rerun strips mixed in with new strips goes on...today's March 6, 2021 Candorville daily strip is a rerun from 2019 but no face mask addition/tweak this time.

Carl, forgive the confusion. Maybe I worded my response to you poorly, but what you've written only applies to "Rudy Park," not "Candorville." Matt Richtel wrote Rudy Park until 2012, after which I wrote it until 2018. But I've been the original writer on Candorville from the start. Candorville has been using more reruns than usual for the last few months b/c I'm creating a graphic novel memoir for Holt Publishing, and there are only so many hours in the day. It's my first graphic novel and it's way more labor intensive than I'd expected. I'm in the home stretch of that book, though, so you'll see fewer and fewer reruns.

No, that was entirely me not thinking clearly. You were on-target.

Yesterday's Saturday, April 17, 2021 Candorville daily strip was for the first time in in a while a rerun - from 2019. (The other strips that week on April 12-16, 2021 were new and first run 2021 Candorville strips).

Here's whar Candorville artist Darrin Bell said about off and on once a week and/or full week Candorville reruns on gocomics.com: "Aside from Candorville, I’m raising three small kids (with another one on the way), writing and drawing two graphic novels, creating editorial cartoons, and working on a middle grade novel. I will NEVER stop creating Candorville. But it isn’t all I do. While I try to minimize reruns, there will be reruns whenever i need there to be reruns, to avoid dropping dead of a heart attack, and to avoid losing the joy I still feel creating the strip. I hope you can understand that."

Here's a facebook message I got from Darrin Bell that he hasn't ceased doing Sunday Candorville strips: "I explained to you in a response to one of your posts that I’m using reruns whenever I need to, because I’m creating a graphic novel. That’s labor intensive, and there are only so many hours in the day."
