Do our comics still make you laugh?

By Judith Patrick
Thursday, October 31, 2013

If you're a reader of our comic pages, we'd like your opinion.

Still charmed by Dennis the Menace? Befuddled by Lio? Intrigued by Judge Parker?

We're conducting a survey to see what people think of all the comic strips and panels we run in our daily and Sunday newspaper.

Part of our reason for doing this is to see if any of these strips, some of which we have run since the 1950s, have worn out their welcome. There are also some new comic strips on the market that we think our readers might enjoy, but an existing strip or two would have to go to make for the newcomer.

So if you're a fan of Dennis or Sally or Crankshaft or Luann, please take our comics survey. We'll keep the survey open through Nov. 15.
