I receive a few daily comic strips via e-mail from one of the major cartoon syndicates. There was a gem in the fine print this morning that read,
"Changes coming on June 1, 2011: On June 1, Comics.com and GoComics are merging to create the largest comic and editorial cartoon compilation on the web."
As I read that, that means that almost all the newspaper comics in the country with the exception of King Features (which does a few of the standards like Beetle Bailey and Blondie), will be one massive syndicated comic strip monopoly.
That can't possibly be good.
