In Cowley County Kansas Curtis has replaced Baby Blues.
We need to update readers on changes to our comics page.
First the comics. Our main supplier of comic strips, King Features Syndicate, recently lost Baby Blues to another syndicate. We had to scramble to fill that spot and chose Curtis. It’s been around since 1988 and details a close-knit, contemporary African-American family living in the inner city. Here is how King Features describes the strip, written by Ray Billingsley and inspired by his own childhood.
Curtis adds diversity and perspective to our comics page. We hope you give it a chance.
The publisher does note:
Baby Blues is a popular comic and we have heard from readers who miss it. We could possibly purchase it again but would need to drop another comic.
Let me know if you have an opinion on that.
When one door closes another door opens.
New comics appear starting today Three new comics have been introduced on today’s comics page — “Monty,” “Cul-De- Sac” and “Baby Blues.” With the addition of the new comic strips, “Celebrity Cipher” and “Wonder Word” puzzles have moved to the Sudoku page.
Not sure when The Courier Traveler made the switch but The Daily Courier made their change on February 15, a Tuesday. There was a time newspapers finished running strips on Saturdays, with the new comic additions debuting on Mondays. When did that change?
