    Well, not everybody gets the weekday strip as NG49 pointed out.

    People keep saying this but in the 21st century, I don’t believe it. Can you name one paper that carries only the daily?

    Back when I didn’t have computers or internet (way back in the dark ages! ha!) I usually only bought the Sunday edition. It used to really irk me when important bits of the story were only in the weekday editions and were not repeated in the Sunday edition.

    … of the newspaper, that is. Of course.

    @ Night_Gaunt49 – As far as I know “Prince Valiant” doesn’t have a daily edition for the strip. The weekend strip is the only one available. Unlike “Dennis the Menace” which does run daily during the week whether or not a particular paper chooses to buy and publish it.

    I believe Prince Valiant is only a weekly now anyway.

    And this is why Alley and Ooola will never get married. He’d have to take her along on all his dangerous adventures, and she’d just get in the way….!

    the example of dennis the menace doesn’t work because it’s not a strip with continuing story arcs. it’s a daily joke (well sort of) strip.

    the benders’ approach is simply the laziest (and lamest) way to handle Sunday strips — stringing together the previous week’s panels. Compare that to the way staton and curtis handle dick tracy — actually there’s no comparison. there’s actually effort and creativity involved every day with DT.

    Good Morning Benders and all Now Sunday is the summary
    day instead of Monday . I read the comics I’m interested in,
    these days on the internet. 20 years ago I used to
    buy 3 non local papers to read on Sunday. Now i read just 1
    local paper on Sunday. The best paper for comics, in California, used to be the LA Times. Since I didn’t read the
    daily paper, I enjoyed the strips that did summaries on Sunday so it doesn’t bother me. For a once a week strip
    Prince Valiant was best.
    A thought, you can’t compare strip artists each is unique.
    Except for a few items I have mentioned in the past, I like
    enjoy the Benders work with Alley Oop. I also enjoy Dick
    Tracy. Apples and Oranges Same is true with Luann,
    Gasoline Alley, and Liberty Meadows (in reruns).

    Phantom has different stories for daily and weekly.

    PV is a Sunday strip only. I meant one paper that carries only the daily Alley Oop.
