Comics readers of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution will now have less strips to enjoy, as the paper has had to drop 11 strips — bringing its number down from 36 comics to 25.
The comics pages? crossword and other puzzles, plus the horoscope and bridge column, were spared, and relocated to the TV page.
A total of 13 comics were actually removed from the lineup, but the paper conducted a survey allowing readers to vote on restoring two of them. The voting ended Thursday night, with an announcement to follow on which strips will be returning.
The axed strips were ?Cathy,? ?Daddy?s Home,? ?Dog Eat Doug,? ?Hagar the Horrible,? ?Ink Pen,? ?Judge Parker,? ?JumpStart,? ?Kevin & Kell,? ?The Lockhorns,? ?Mark Trail,? ?Mary Worth,? ?On a Claire Day? and ?Rose Is Rose.?
Among the more than two-dozen strips still running in the AJC: ?Garfield,? ?Mutts,? ?Peanuts,? ?Pearls Before Swine,? ?Blondie,? ?Get Fuzzy? and ?Non Sequitur.?
