Upon the launching of “Bozo” by its syndicate in December 1945, it was reported by the Richmond Times Dispatch that the comic strip had an initial “audience of 2,300,000 newspaper readers.”
Well, as of this posting and after its launching on GoComics, six weeks ago, “Bozo” has an audience of 314 followers.
Discouraging? No, not at all. Because among those followers are some of the most enthusiastic and loyal followers a comic strip could hope for.
