Indeed. He did come back with Outland or some-such name. It was wiggity-wack-ier. My recollextion is it wasn't around long.

I read an interview recently (the interview itself may have been older) with Bill Watterson, who did Calvin & Hobbes. Apparently he never does interviews, is kind of a recluse (like Mattlund). Anyway he was asked about ending the strip, and he said basically the same.
