The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J., plans to reinstate “Slylock Fox and Comics for Kids” on Sunday March 23 after readers complained about the strip being pulled.
“Pardon My Planet” will be dropped on Sundays instead, according to the paper, which recently shrunk its Sunday comics section from eight to six pages to save money on newsprint. Most strips were kept, but many now run smaller than they did.
Bob Weber Jr. does “Slylock Fox and Comics for Kids” for King Features Syndicate, which also distributes “Pardon My Planet.”
“I think it’s significant that a ‘kids’ comic made a strong impression on readers,” Weber told E&P today.
