Newspaper Comics Are Not Very Good

Just a quick rant about the comic section in the newspaper.  I get access to a newspaper every now and then and while I do check out the news, my favorite part is the puzzle section as I mentioned in a previous blog.  With the puzzles, there are always the comics. I read these sometimes and while some of them are moderately funny, others are not funny at all.

Some comics almost seem pointless and I wonder, who is writing these and why is the newspaper paying them to include them in the paper.  Not all comics are suppose to be funny.  There are those ones that are like an ongoing comic book drama.  The only problem it, they are a long story and only show 3 panes per day!  Most people don't have the patience to read a comic book even when they have the whole book.  Are there actually people that follow these series 3 images at a time?

I don't think they should get rid of comics, just make them better.  Only include funny ones.  They don't have to be the same comics and authors every day.  Or just include more puzzles and fun activities in their place.

By the way, I just posted a Dilbert comic for an example of a comic.  Dilbert is one of my favorites and usually pretty funny.
