Do they still put comics in the newspaper? Are there still Sunday Editions?

Are there still newspapers? I used to like the Sunday Crossword. Not the same on a tablet

@PolkaDot  Yeah.  The weekly paper has a small section, usually a half page in black and white.  The Sunday paper has three pages in color.  It's still funny to me to see comics such as Rex Morgan or Prince Valiant still active nowadays.

I feel like I see them at the coffee joint sometimes- but I wouldn’t wager money on it.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I don’t think I know Rex Morgan.

@PolkaDot  He's a doctor.  It's one of those soap opera comics.  I sure as heck don't read it but I remember my Grandmother doing so.

Are you joking? @TigerLily   Newspapers are slowly dying unfortunately but they're still around.  ShayP will be very sad when the end of them finally comes...which seems inevitable.  I've been reading newspapers everyday for most of my life and I don't want to do it on a tablet or some other device.   :(

Yes, Shay. I think it's bad that real newspapers are going away. Facebook and tv for news? Just wrong  :(

@PB  Is that from The Wizard of Id?  It seems familiar to me.  I haven't seen that comic in the paper for over 20 years.

Yes - and it's still in the local paper here.  It will be a sad day for me when I can no longer unfurl a real newspaper at the local outdoor coffeeshop

Newspapers license the comic strips from distributors, such as King Features.  My understanding is the papers then choose which they want / have room to print.  Depending on the distributor, individuals can read the comics online - typically the current day's strip is free, but need a membership to read older ones.

Here are a few websites to look through, there are others..

Thanks! @PB   I bookmarked the links.  Like clockwork I've read the paper every morning with breakfast for most of my adult life.  Many years ago when there was an evening edition I would read that after dinner, even as a kid.  Granted I didn't comprehend most of it then at the age of 7, but I liked to read nonetheless.  Let's hope the news PRINT  ;) never goes away.

Cheers!  :)
