After more than a year of trying out comics and soliciting reader comments, The Hartford (Conn.) Courant has chosen “Arctic Circle” to replace the daily “FoxTrot.”
Bill Amend’s “FoxTrot,” which is distributed by Universal Press Syndicate, went Sunday-only at the end of 2006.
“Arctic Circle” is by Alex Hallatt of King Features Syndicate. Her comic stars three penguins.
Other strips the Courant tested included “Agnes,” “Candorville,” “Cow and Boy,” “Diesel Sweeties,” and “Frazz.”
The news about the Courant’s choice was mentioned today on Tom Spurgeon’s Comics Reporter blog .
