City Paper is not for tourists
At the risk of being called a dweeb, I confess that I think the Post‘s new blog on comic strips, Comic Riffs, is pretty great. In its first few days, cartoonist Michael Cavna has interviewed Garry Trudeau, taken his shots at Garfield and Sally Forth, and questioned the very necessity of Beetle Bailey. My questions: Why is Bizarro, the best one-panel strip currently going, relegated to Express? Who came up with the truly brilliant idea of running the Spanish version of Ziggy in the Onion? And why didn’t Just Posted, the Post blog that’s supposed to tell me about all the cool new stuff the Post is doing, tell me about Comic Riffs?
