‘Watch Your Head’ to fill in during McGruder’s six-month leave.

*The Washington Post Writers Group has announced that Cory Thomas’ comic strip “Watch Your Head” will replace “The Boondocks” during its six-month hiatus this year. 

Thomas, an African American in his mid-20s, bases his strip around five black college students and one white Canadian at the predominately black Oliver Otis University. 

The Washington Post Writers Group, which syndicates more than 20 writers, numerous comic strip artists and editorial cartoonists, had originally planned to launch “Watch Your Head” on May 21, but decided to move up its national debut to March 27 – the day following the last appearance by “The Boondocks” until its return in October. 

On Feb. 28, “Boondocks” creator Aaron McGruder announced that he was taking a six-month break from the property, stating in a letter to editors carrying the strip: “Every well needs occasional refreshing. I hope that this fall you will agree that the time away from the demands of deadlines has served the strip, your readers and me.”

Like McGruder, Thomas is a Howard University graduate. He currently lives in the Washington, D.C. area.
