Another newspaper is running fewer comics, reported ComicsReporter.com, which noted that the New York Daily News reduced its comics section from four to three pages.
An E&P look at a Daily News edition from last month shows 31 comics on four pages. An edition from this week shows 26 comics on three pages, with a number of them printed smaller than they were in December.
The five strips no longer in the section include “Agnes,” “Cathy,” “Girls & Sports,” “Peanuts” reruns, and “Pooch Cafe.”
“Girls & Sports” and “F Minus” did appear in today’s Daily News classified section. Last month, an edition of the Daily News included “F Minus” and “Tina’s Groove” in the classifieds.
The New York City market is one of the worst in the country for comics. The New York Times runs no comics and The New York Post only seven.
