It’s the Seattle Post-Intelligencer that’s dropped “Zippy.” They’re both owned by the same outfit (JOA), but they still have different comic editors.

Apparently the Onion is dropping ALL their comics. The issue that came out today has another special Wondermark that’s not on the web btw.

There is a change in the offing at the Los Angeles Times in the near future. They’ve been running trial strips to determine which will replace FBOFW. I’ve not cared for any of the entrants thus far, but I just found out that Stone Soup by Jan Eliot is up next.
She definitely gets my vote!!!

How can any paper drop Monty? That strip is pure genius!
