Newsday Adds Comics

In an age when newspaper comics sections are quickly shrinking, Long Island Newsday has announced that it's adding a page to its Sunday comics section. In addition, it's asking readers to select the three comics that will appear there.

If you're a Newsday or Optimum Online subscriber, go here to cast your vote, and to comment on what your favorite and least favorite comic strips are in Newsday's current lineup.

The candidates for the new page are: Bizarro; Daddy's Home; Dustin; Pearls Before Swine; Prickly City; and Tundra. Personally, I wanted to vote for Frazz, Brewster Rockit, and 9 Chickweed Lane, none of which are in any NYC-area papers. But, the choices are what they are.

The poll closes on midnight, August 29. Vote now!

** UPDATE **

The voting is over, and the winners were: Pearls Before Swine, Dustin, and Tundra. All three were added to Newsday's Sunday comics section on September 5. The last one took me by surprise. I didn't think New Yorkers would go for a panel about the Great Northwest.
