The Daily Cartoonist returns!

Over the last two years you might have noticed that the news crawl on the right hand side of the AAEC site was rather static. This was due to AAEC friend and prolific writer Alan Gardner taking a long hiatus from blogging.

The good news is — The Daily Cartoonist has returned! Gardner recently announced he has sold his blog to Andrews McMeel and that GoComics would be taking over the blog. John Glynn & D.D. Degg will be taking over the reporting duties.

So welcome back @dailycartoonist!
