Allison Barrows is ending her “Preteena” comic on May 18.
Universal Press Syndicate said Barrows, with a son about to enter high school and a daughter heading for college, will soon begin a new career as an associate producer in the area of interactive events and seminars.
“It was an opportunity that was too good to pass up, and it demands my undivided attention,” said the New Hampshire-based cartoonist.
These days, many comic creators can’t make a living with their syndicated features alone.
“PreTeena,” which had a theme of pre-adolescent angst, was launched by Universal in 2001.
