I remember when the Sunday funnies were like a giant color comic book. Today, the Sunday funnies are often just one sheet of paper and the panels about the size of postage stamps. That’s if your paper still does funnies. That’s if your town still has a newspaper.
Hey, it’s Capitalism. Any time you don’t maximize revenue and minimize every single shred of cost, you are Losing Money.
A venal sin.
Anything else will just be Venezuela.
You know what I’ve never understood? Every time the newspapers surveyed readers, they found that the comics were the most read thing in the newspaper. So they responded by giving them less and less space. Makes no sense.
The newspaper in our city is dying, not because of miniaturizing the comics, but because of their leftist, anti-American, anti-Christian agenda.
It is why I read them on line. Easy to adjust the size
Its particularly bad over at Comics Kingdom. My subscription ends this month and it won’t be renewed. CRTL ++ only goes so far.
Bloom County did this back in the 80s where the comics disappeared into a black hole
