» The Great Falls Tribune (MT), has added four new comics: Pearls Before Swine (Sunday), The Argyle Sweater, Tundra and Family Tree. Outgoing comics include the daily version of Pardon My Planet, Rose is Rose, Six Chix and the Sunday Little Dog Lost.
» The Detroit News is bringing back the Peanuts for both Sunday and daily.
My contact at United Media tells me that the following strips have been picked up:
» Victorville Daily Press (CA) has added Rip Haywire and Prickly City.
» Marysville Appeal-Democrat (CA) has added Luann on both Sunday and daily as well as Get Fuzzy.
» The Minneapolis Star-Tribune has also added Rip Haywire into their daily line up.
» The St. Paul Pioneer Press has added Prickly City on Sundays but will not appear Until the first Sunday in January.
» And lastly, the big news is the Washington Times has dropped their WHOLE comics page. I was tipped off last week, but sat on the story in hopes of getting a response from the Times’ features editor. I’ll post any reply I receive, but since the drop has been mentioned on Mike Rhodes’ blog and elsewhere, I’ll mention it here now.
