But now splendid commenter Mark weighs in with his own lament.
What about the carnage in the Herald comic pages? You could see the handwriting on the wall for The Knight Life when the cartoonist took strong anti-cop positions after Ferguson. But what did Lio do to piss off the Howie Carr Fan Club? He’s been dumped for the long-dead Charles Schultz and 45-year-old Peanuts strips!
(To be frank graf goes here.)
To be frank, we had no idea all that was happening; the hardchuckling staff hasn’t read the Boston Herald comics page since it dumped Mark Parisi’s Off the Mark umpteen years ago.
Regardless, here’s the current incarnation of the flighty local tabloid’s comics pages.
We feel your pain, Mark.
