I mentioned earlier that one of the big challenges facing newspapers is that much of what they do is unoriginal; many newspapers are just aggregators.
Comics are an example of content that many people looked to newspaper for. Mislead the American public on Iraq and a small percentage of your readers will grumble; mess with the comics page and all hell will break loose.
I went straight to the distributor of that content – uclick – a division of the same company that licenses comics to newspapers. They let you get a daily email with one comic for free. If you want more than one comic, you can create a custom comics page for $12/year.
For people who are primarily interested in the comics, that’s a lot cheaper than a newspaper subscription. Without all the environmental guilt.
And here is that useless RSS feed. Every day you can see the date.
