Boston Globe’s Comics Page Reboot Is a Total Joke

The Great Comic Strip Follies at the Boston Globe continued yesterday. As the hardreading staff previously noted, right before Christmas the cheapskately local broadsheet announced that it had “discontinued several strips and two puzzles” from its daily editions.

By “several strips,” of course, they meant 11.

Two weeks later, the Globe moonwalked from its comic strip mining.

 

 

And yesterday the results were in, as we learned from this editor’s note.

 

They gotta be nuts graf:

 

 

Seriously? Rose Is Rose instead of Get Fuzzy? Adam @ Home instead of Zippy? We’re sorry to say this, but Globe readers are idiots.

(Then again, restoring the Jumble is a good call. The old man used to toss it on the breakfast table to see who could be first to solve it without any writing implements. It was good clean American fun.)

Regardless, the Great Globe Comic Strip Tease is now officially over.

Badly done, Globeniks. Very badly done.

    Adam @ Home is so dull. Its original creator Brian Basset was hilarious with a great art style, but he moved on to his new strip Red & Rover. The current artist on Adam just made it a generic family strip drawn without any of Basset’s character. I don’t get why people would want this stale hamburger; did they forget they started out with steak?
