The Toronto Star has dropped Darby Conley’s Get Fuzzy in favor of Aaron Johnson’s new (at least in print) comic W.T. Duck. The editor noted the flood of calls from Get Fuzzy fans, but in the end the decision was made by “canvassing some newsroom comic page readers” and making “a judgment call.” Public Editor Kathy English signs off saying, “our instincts were that W.T. Duck fit nicely into the mix of the page and has the potential to reach a wider audience than Get Fuzzy.”
The Herald Times in Bloomington (IN) has announced which comic they are cutting after a poll. Unfortunately, the results are behind a subscriber login. Anyone know which feature was cut?
