The Age cancels three of its comic strips 

This week The Age newspaper cancelled three of its five comic strips - a sad day for comics in this country.

The three strips cancelled were the timeless Bristow, the inspired Zits and, worst of all, Alex Hallatt's brilliant comic strip The Arctic Circle. This strip often gave me "I wish I'd thought of that" feelings, with its currency, perfect execution in a clean style, appealing animal characters and always funny gags. Some other paper needs to pick this up!


Thank you (*blush*)...
I mean it - they need to bring this strip back ASAP!
Man, they were the three best. that doesnt make any sense.
The did reinstate "Zits" about a week later, but it still isn't much of a comic section. I can't believe they ditched "Arctic Circle" in particular - it's inspired, timely and, importantly, really funny!
