We have received several e-mails and phone calls from readers wondering when we will resume publishing the comic strip "Umbert the Unborn" in the Saturday Faith & Values section.
We regularly publish only one comic strip in Faith & Values: "Kudzu" by Doug Marlette. The strip features the preacher Will B. Dunn as its main character. At left above is a panel from last Saturday.
"Umbert the Unborn" is actually a paid advertisement that is designed as a comic strip. The ad most recently appeared in the March 17 edition of Faith & Values.
It has also been published in other sections of The Eagle.
Whether "Umbert the Unborn" will be in the paper again is a decision the advertiser will make, not the newsroom.
"Kudzu" provides a humorous look at religious life that many of our readers find enjoyable and refreshing.
As always, if you have questions or suggestions for improving our coverage of faith-related stories, please feel free to let us know.
