TLDR Edge City is now being syndicated online by two different comic-strip syndicates. I’ve never seen that before and I have no idea what the heck is going on. There’s this comic strip, Edge City, which ended new strips in 2016, but reruns of the strip continued to syndicated online, and presumably in some newspapers… Read More »
Apparently “Edge City” is now being syndicated on GoComics, so I’ve updated the comics aggregator to get it from there instead of Comics Kingdom.
Users of my comics aggregator who are also Comics Kingdom subscribers may have noticed that Tina’s Groove and Edge City have been missing in the aggregator for more than a week. This is because they are also missing on Comics Kingdom, which has stopped updating them without explanation. This is not the first step this… Read More »
Users of the comics aggregator who are also Comics Kingdom subscribers may have noticed that the comic strip Baby Blues is no longer available as of January 12. Apparently syndication of this strip is moving from King Features (Comics Kingdom) to to Andrews McMeel (Go Comics) as of February 1, and the maintainers of Comics… Read More »

I have updated the comics aggregator so that it now supports all available Comics Kingdom comics. Note that you need to pay Comics Kingdom for a subscription if you want to access its comics through the aggregator. See here for details.
The comics aggregator is currently unable to display Carolyn Hax columns because the Washington Post RSS feed that the aggregator uses to find out about Carolyn’s columns has been broken for several days. I have complained repeatedly to the Post’s customer service department but they have not acknowledged my complaint or addressed the problem. I… Read More »
When I look at the content of the “Mallard Fillmore” comic strip, two words inevitably come to mind: “ok boomer.” Bruce Tinsley, the author of Mallard Fillmore, has a nationwide platform which he mostly uses to publish endless variants of stupid “get off my lawn!” jokes, as befitting someone of his age. If it were… Read More »
The advice column “Ask Amy”, written by Amy Dickinson, has been removed from my comics aggregator and will not be coming back. Advice columnists draw from three wellsprings: advice, compassion, and judgment. All three have their place, and different responses call for different measures of each one. Good columnists accompany all three with a healthy… Read More »
