Tina’s Groove creator Rina Piccolo was a recent panelist at Mocca on the topic of “The Future Of The Traditional Comic Strip In An Era Of Dying Newspapers.” She’s posted seven reasons she believes comics are not dead yet. Her first two reasons:
1. Print syndication of comic strips to newspapers is still a business. For some cartoonists it?s a very big business. For a few others, like myself, it?s a living.
2. Although print syndication is still a business, it?s important to note that it isn?t a growing business.
