La Cucaracha (2/18/10)

Curiously enough, this strip ran in the Chicago Sun-Times a week after the Chicago Tribune increased the size of its comics. That’s right, increased. At first, I was dubious of the plan to print the comics larger, since several of my favorites were being axed to make room. What good is a large-format comics page if it’s going to be filled with the likes of Blondie and Hagar the Horrible? But when I opened the paper last week and saw the new layout, I was pleasantly surprised. For the first time in my life, I was able to read the comics while the newspaper lay flat of a table. It was enough to make me forgive the poor selection, at least temporarily.
