    A cry from the comic syndications falling on the deaf ears of the newspaper publication’s financial considerations.

    …the Republican Party wants all to lose the ability to read and write…“keep ’em dumb” I think is their motto.

    If comics went away, I wouldn’t bother with the paper at all.

    I am reading this comic now. It will be in my morning paper that I will pick up in ten hours.

    Very often the newspaper version of the comic skips a panel that is vital to understanding or appreciating the whole story – the online version is always complete.

    Truth in journalism… I subscribe to my papers online ( for which I pay a modest monthly fee ), thereby helping to keep the local newspaper going while saving trees.
    This is how newspapers will survive in the future. Front section dedicated to local news and editorials, with national and world news stories taken off the wire and relegated to the second section. Sports, Classified, Comics, and Special Sections will still be there. Advertisers are recognizing that they can still get the exposure online so it’s a win-win !

    It seems Garry Trudeau is unfamiliar with the world of webcomics.

    Certainly Trudeau is familiar with the world of webcomics, but Doonesbury is first and foremost a newspaper strip and that’s the way he writes it. The real problem with comics in the papers is the ever-shrinking size forced on the comics by the editors. I only subscribe to papers that print the art large enough for proper appreciation. Consequently I no longer subscribe to the local paper. Trudeau did a funny strip about the size problem a few years back.

    I’ll add to the criticisms here about how newspapers publish. The “shrink wrap” (making the cartoons and fonts so small the comic is unreadable), and the editing out of complete panels (Doonesbury in particular) makes them unreadable. Thank goodness I can come here and see the entire comic. And enlarge it if I feel the need. Sad, really.

    Don’t even get me started on crosswords!
