New Sunday Funnies for The Great Bend Tribune

The Great Bend (Kansas) Tribune announced new comics coming to the paper.

June 19 [2022] marks the day for new comics in the Sunday paper. 

The Great Bend Tribune is excited to introduce fresh, new comic strips to you. We hope you will enjoy them, as we tried to pick comics that would be appropriate for all ages. We’ve also kept a few of our readers’ favorites.

Here are the new features you’ll find on the Sunday Comics page:

Big Nate: Aspiring cartoonist Nate Wright is the star of Big Nate, the daily and Sunday comic strip distributed by NEA since 1991...

Reality Check: Cartoonist Dave Whamond offers an offbeat view of the world in Reality Check, that exposes the hidden hilarity in everyday situations with a thoroughly wacky look at life...

The Argyle Sweater: Scott Hilburn is the creator of The Argyle Sweater. It is a comic panel where one should expect the unexpected

The Buckets offers a realistic snapshot of modern family life: the worries, the mayhem and the often-overlooked rewards. Examining everyday chaos with a healthy sense of humor

Just when it seemed Andrews McMeel had a lock on The Tribune’s Sunday Funnies:

The Amazing Spider-Man, created by Stan Lee, centers on hard-luck high school student Peter Parker. When Peter is accidentally bitten by a radioactive spider, he gains superpowers.

Bizarro by Wayno and Dan Piraro gives an eccentric, exaggerated and bizarre look at everyday life.. 

Slylock Fox and Comics for Kids by Bob Weber, Jr. is another one our new comic strips that has “spot the differences,” puzzles, games, drawing lessons, and a cast of furry characters that solve mysteries

Evidently the Sunday comics will be printed in black and white (and gray tone).

We invite children (or adults) to come by the Great Bend Tribune to pick up a free box of crayons. Use the crayons to color the comics or complete the puzzles and games.

We did give a few children a preview of the comics with a box of crayons. After they finished coloring they then made hats and boats from the newspapers.

Anybody have a rundown of the complete Great Bend Tribune comics lineup?
