Digital rebirth for comic strips

There’s an interesting story over on CNet about how the internet is changing the cartooning industry.

As comics move online, the rules for reaching a broader audience are changing, and the skills those cartoonists need to reach their audience change as well.

Bjordahl, for example, maintains a blog with a small group of fans, and plans to join a federation of niche comic strips–including a paleontologist comic–that target specialized ads to his audience.

Traditional comic-strip writers also face tough competition from animated cartoons. The political satire of JibJab was a staple of the last presidential election, in many ways setting the bar for animated humor.
