Once upon a time, a newspaper cut comic strips knowing it could be unleashing the hounds by way of calls and letters from readers angered by a disruption of cherished routines. But thus far, the Post hasn’t been deluged after cutting a baker’s dozen of strips, including iconic favorites like Doonesbury and Peanuts, while keeping dead wood like Beetle Bailey and Blondie. Is it an indication that most comics fans get their fix online these days?

 

“Not necessarily,” says Jeanette Chavez, the Post‘s managing editor/administration — but she does point out that the trimmed strips will continue to be available online. In addition to Peanuts, which will be seen in print on Sundays only, they are Bizarro, Brevity, Doonesbury, Dustin, F-Minus, Frazz, Heart of the City, The Knight Life, Non Sequitur, Overboard, Rhymes with Orange, and Scary Gary.
