Modeled somewhat after Joel Pett’s Toon-op that runs in the LA Times, Daryl Cagle has started a similar feature reviewing the current events with cartoons. The new feature will be written by his daughter Susie. From his blog:
I’ve never seen anything like this in syndication, probably because cartoons and the written word are very separate things in syndication. We deliver cartoons as suggested illustrations for our columns, so our delivery system was set up to do this. Also, all of our subscribing newspapers subscribe to all of our content as a “package,” unlike some other syndicates that sell each cartoonist and columnist separately and couldn’t know if a particular subscriber had purchased each cartoonist contributor to a “week in review” feature – so we’re in a unique situation to make this feature work.
You can see the first column on his blog (currently the first post at the top of the page.).
