1[[quoteright:350:]]˛˛Andrews-[=McMeel=] Publishing is a newspaper syndicate founded in 1970 by Jim Andrews and John [=McMeel=] as the Universal Press Syndicate.˛˛It quickly gained notoriety by picking up a comic on the ''Yale Times'' called ''Bull Tales'', drawn by Garry Trudeau, which was retooled into ''ComicStrip/{{Doonesbury}}''. For decades, Universal Press became known for giving its cartoonists more creative freedom than its competitors, giving way to features like ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' and ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' among others.˛˛In 2009 the syndicate became known as Universal Uclick after it merged with its digital division, and two years later it acquired Creator/UnitedFeatureSyndicate from Scripps-Howard. In 2017 the Universal Uclick brand was replaced by the Andrews-[=McMeel=] Publishing name.˛˛[[foldercontrol]]˛[[folder:Current Strips]]˛* ''ComicStrip/AdamAtHome''˛* ''ComicStrip/{{Agnes}}''˛* ''The Argyle Sweater''˛* ''ComicStrip/{{Baldo}}''˛* ''Biographic''˛* ''Broom Hilda''˛* ''Close to Home''˛* ''ComicStrip/DickTracy''˛* ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' (2007-, previously ran on United Feature 1989-2007)˛* ''ComicStrip/{{Doonesbury}}'' (1970-, daily strips have been on reruns since 2014)˛* ''The Flying [=McCoys=]''˛* ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' (1988-, daily strips have been on reruns since 2009)˛* ''Fred Basset'' (world rights)˛* ''The Fusco Brothers''˛* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' (1993-, previously ran on United Feature 1978-1993)˛* ''ComicStrip/GasolineAlley''˛* ''Ginger Meggs'' (world rights)˛* ''ComicStrip/HeartOfTheCity''˛* ''Herb & Jamaal''˛* ''ComicStrip/InkPen''˛* ''James Bond'' (world rights, on reruns)˛* ''ComicStrip/{{Lio}}''˛* ''ComicStrip/{{Nancy}}''˛* ''ComicStrip/NonSequitur''˛* ''ComicStrip/OffTheMark''˛* ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' (2011-, reruns previously ran on United Features)˛* ''ComicStrip/PhoebeAndHerUnicorn'' (2015-, previously a webcomic)˛* ''ComicStrip/PoochCafe''˛* ''Red and Rover''˛* ''ComicStrip/StoneSoup''˛* ''Tank [=McNamara=]'' (1974-)˛* ''ComicStrip/TomTheDancingBug''˛* ''Wallace the Brave'' (2018-, previously a webcomic)˛* ''ComicStrip/WhatTheDuck''˛* ''ComicStrip/{{Ziggy}}'' (1971-)˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Historical Strips]]˛* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' (1985-1995)˛* ''ComicStrip/CulDeSac'' (2007-2012)˛* ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' (1980-1995)˛* ''Fenton'' (1980s)˛* ''ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse'' (1979-2008)˛* ''Judge Dredd'' (1980s, world rights)˛[[/folder]]
