A new era of the The Far Side, the newspaper strip by Gary Larson, is coming.

Fans noticed over the weekend that the strip’s official website had been updated with a new cartoon and a message: “Uncommon, unreal, and (soon-to-be) unfrozen. A new online era of The Far Side is coming!”

The cartoon, drawn by Larson, showed a man with an open flame, thawing a block of ice which encased many of the familiar cast of Far Side characters: a cow, a dog, a cave man, a child and a woman.

The popular strip originally ran from Jan. 1, 1980, to Jan. 1, 1995.

Observers took note of the website update: The site The Daily Cartoonist tweeted about it on Friday, and the A.V. Club has mentioned it as well.
