Do you think Jeff Keane's The Family Circus comic strip should get rebooted in at least 2022? A reboot of the Family Circus strip in 2022 (more or less) could mean:
* A new artist (Think of when Steenz took over Heart of the City and went a graphic novel style approach or when Olivia Jaimes took over Nancy) replacing Jeff Keane?
* No more recycled art from past FC strips (Like in 2021 it was heavy on recycled art from 1954, 1971, 1982, 1993 and 1999 FC strips)?
* No more "Jeff and Bil Keane" and "Bil and Jeff Keane" confusion signatures (for Sunday strips mostly)?
* A new title? Maybe replace the FC title with a "The Keane Families" title?
* And...for the FC reboot: make the Keane melonhead kids adults with their own children each in seperate households nearby, even turn Thel and Dad Keane in old grandparents!

What do you think of these ideas for a rebooted Family Circus comic strip in maybe 2022?

Honestly, I don't mind the recycled strips at all. I like the concept
of a "classic series". Mind you, I'm too young to remember the
originals, so I enjoy seeing them.

That's a neat concept!

Also: The Family Circus reboot that I imagined should be multi panel and not the 1 panel in a circle form.
