How To Feed a Cartoonist

How To Feed A Cartoonist by Randy Glasbergen

website-DI_CharacterFooter3

Once upon a time, people read their favorite comic strips in the local daily and Sunday newspaper. Some of us even bought more than one newspaper so we could enjoy many more of our favorite strips and panels. For decades, comic strip creators have been financially supported by the newspapers who pay to publish their work. The comics business still works this way, but things are changing fast.

These days, more and more of us are reading comics online in digital newspapers or special comic showcases like GoComics  and Comics Kingdom You may already have a free app on your phone or tablet that lets you enjoy hundreds of new comics every day. Your favorite online comic strips depend on subscribers and advertising, not newspapers, to help them survive, thrive and keep the cartoonist families fed.

When you enjoy your favorite comics online, please be sure to “like”, “share” , “subscribe” , “add to favorites” or “comment”. These simple clicks add up and show advertisers where to send their payments.

Your support matters and it is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
