Gannett to experiment with smaller paper size

In a development to watch to see if it affects the number of comics run in a newspaper, Gannett, the largest newspaper publisher in the U.S.  will be experimenting with a new paper size that is somewhere between tabloid and broadsheet according to this story in the BBC.  The first paper to make the leap will be the Indiana journal and Courier.

Many newspapers have moved to a smaller paper size in an effort to reduce paper costs and as a result sometimes drop comic features because of the redesigns of the paper.  A good example of this is the Statesman-Journal in Salem Oregon who dropped several features when they began printing in a narrower broadsheet.
