The Daily Cartoonist on the future of the Daily Newspaper

Alan Gardner’s blog is usually a good gauge of what’s going on with syndicated newspaper comics and by association newspapers in general.  He has a recent post with links to speculation on the future of the newsprint biz.  The only thing everyone seems to agree on is that the future won’t look like the past.

Alan also noted he’s going to start a weekly roundup of webcomic news — it might be worth sending him your blurbs for exposure to a little different audience than blogs like ComixTALK or FLEEN.  On the other hand if you do, be prepared to run the unyielding Wiley/Rall gauntlet of doubt about all comics not printed on sweet, sweet dead trees.  Ah, I love me the smell of printer’s ink in the morning!

UPDATE: the first of Alan’s webcomic linkfests is up today.
