Major comic page shake up at the Detriot Free Press

The Detroit Free Press announced over the weekend that they were launching a new and improved features section called “Life.” In passing they mention…

You’ll find some other changes in Monday’s paper, including a new comics lineup, a new page with more puzzles and a fresh new focus for The List! — metro Detroit’s best local entertainment calendar.

I miss “A College Girl Named Joe” I read it every day. What happened to it? I haven’t seen it since before X-Mas.
