As a post on this journal noted in early October, one spot on the comics pages is serving as a place to test-drive comic strips that might replace ‘For Better or for Worse,’ whose author semi-retired in August. Here’s a note that appears in the Calendar section today:

To Our Readers
“Luann” joins Calendar today, one of the comics we’re letting readers sample as a possible replacement for “For Better or for Worse,” which is now in reruns. Through Dec. 14, we will run “Luann,” by Greg Evans. After that we’ll sample one or two more comics, then we’ll make a selection. Please send comments to

Here’s the post from August when the ‘For Better or for Worse’ announcement was first made.
