The comics section. Now without the "newspaper" part
Yes, looks like this guy is trying just that with News Free Comics. It's a new publication that's trying to showcase lesser known newspaper strips (and apparently independent strips as well, since it has Dave Kellett's "Sheldon"). It has strips I like (Dog eat Doug and Retail in particular), so I guess I recommend it.
In order for this to get off the ground, it needs 2,000 subscribers within couple of months, so spread the word, fellas.
That's the way ALL newspapers should be. Nothing but comics. Subscriptions would skyrocket.
Well.....I think it needs more than that.
When's the last time you picked up a newspaper to read news? Generally, I only check out the Living section, because I get my news elsewhere. I want the paper to entertain me in the morning. Which, right now, no paper is devoted to doing.
One of my long-term life goals is that I'd like to start an "entertainment paper" that had comics, serialized novel chapters, puzzles, etc. The problem with a paper that's just comic strips is that not everyone reads comic strips. You put all your eggs in one basket and you'll fail. And he's failing.
But even more importantly, he didn't put Brewster Rockit, Space Guy in there. Funk dat!

I think newspapers have become obsolete, now with the invention of the internet. Everything's on it, including comics, and most people have access to it, and if not the internet, 99% of Americans have a TV, which has news on it. The only thing missing is comic strips on TV, but who would watch (read?) "The Comic Strip Show"? But I guess getting rid of the newspaper would be like losing a piece of American history. I mean, they *still* make vinyl records...
Oh, the ravings of a lunatic that is me...
