Greg Larson and Sam Watterston both quit when they were at the top of their game. I wonder, if like Washington retiring after two terms, this will influence future cartoonists. Al Capp is the warning figure, and they are the role models. Pay attention Trudeau.
I would have counted Trudeau as another 'warning figure'.
Personally, I think Doonesbury should have shut down around 1980.
To expand and revise WTS' comment, FORK YES.PW: it should've gone on its hiatus about 1980 and never re-opened. It would've survived as the perfect encapsulation of the 70s instead of becoming a progressive cocooning aid
YAY for Paco!
