There's been some discussion on social media about our comics lately, especially the ones not by local authors, so I thought it might be time to find out what you, the reader, think about these strips in the first place.
You might notice that a few strips aren't included in the survey. The local strips (Hoopleville, Red Meat, Random Shots and K. Rat) will likely be in the Weekly as long as the authors keep creating them. In fact, we're definitely looking to add another local strip or two. Tom Tomorrow's This Modern World is so good, it feels like his strip is just an alt-weekly given at this point. Mild Abandon is still new and, frankly, I find it hilarious, so it's safe.
Also, I'd love to know what strips you enjoy that we're not currently running. Is there a particularly brilliant webcomic we've missed? Something another alt-weekly has that we don't? We'll leave the survey up for a month or so and see what we learn. Thanks in advance for your help.
