Funny page changes of the week (Updated)

Here’s the run down so far of what shake-ups were seen in a few papers across the country this week.

Wiley Miller’s Non-Sequitur has beat out Get Fuzzy, Rhymes with Orange and Preteena in the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram’s comic poll.

Brian Crane’s Pickles was the try-out comic in the News Observer as a replacement for the outgoing FoxTrot. It was so popular, they decided to keep it as a permanent replacement regardless of the outcome of the other try-out features. Edge City got bumped to make space. Mark Tatulli’s Lio is the current feature up for a vote starting this week.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is now running Tony Cochran’s Agnes as their try-out comic. Past tryouts include Lio and Diesel Sweeties.

UPDATE: The Marion Daily Republican has selected Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott’s Baby Blues as their permanent replacement for FoxTrot. Alley Oop held the spot temporarily until this week.

More proof that newspaper readers are older, and newspapers would do well to cater more to them while they still can and quit trying to bring in younger readers that don’t care about picking up newsprint. But what do I know, I think Pickles is a good, funny comic and I’m nowhere near the age of the main characters. I’d rather read it over Edge City any day.
