I will dearly miss the regular, every-Sunday color strips. However, since I'm not drawing them I have no vote in the matter.
Good to hear you'll continue Sheldon. With "Little Dee", "Helen, Sweetheart of the Internet", "Barkeater Lake" and several others biting or having bitten the dust, I'm happy to still have Sheldon to look for each weekday. People get attached to their regular strips, and very attached to their favorite strips. That's why Peanuts, in reruns, is still netting the Schulz heirs a tidy sum each month and why Superman early comics are worth fortunes.
So very few things make us happy and can get us to chuckle and forget our troubles as a good comic strip or cartoon. Cripes, I still read "Marmaduke"! Keep drawing yours, even if we do miss out on the Sunday strips.
OBTW, "Drive" is becoming quite interesting. It doesn't have the immediate grab of a child genius/millionaire/orphan living with his grandpa, but it's beginning to grow on me. Especially with the "Gilligan's Island" of a crew being assembled.
Black holes are where God divided by zero.
