Clear Blue Water, the syndicated comic strip from Karen Montague-Reyes will switch from newspaper syndication via Universal Press Syndicate to a web-only model as of September 28.
The strip began in 2004 and features the semi-autobiographical adventures of Eve Merriweather-Torres and her husband, Manny. The chatty strip has covered every top usually shunned by most strips – sex, religion, and politics. The family of seven includes their son Seth who is autistic which has been the subject of numerous strips
The strip never caught on and Montague-Reyes told Editor & Publisher, the switch "was not my decision, but there is something to be said for having a difficult and inevitable decision made for you."
Clear Blue Water will migrate at month’s end to the still-being-built www.KarenMontagueReyes.com site is currently under construction. "I love cartooning — and my strip, for me, was never about the money. Hopefully, my fans will stay tuned."
