Changes coming to RDR’s comics pages


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

The Roswell Daily Record, like most newspapers, provides many services to its readers, most of them focused on keeping people informed on a number of topics.

Sometimes overlooked when considering the benefits of reading the paper are the pages devoted to amusement, the comics pages. But we know many of our readers look forward to the content on these pages — some even naming them as their favorite parts of the paper.

As such, we’re always looking for ways to improve. Beginning Tuesday, readers will notice the results of those efforts, in the form of some changes to our comics pages.

We didn’t undertake this effort based only on internal decision-making. We sought and received feedback from readers and incorporated that into our content decisions.

The daily comics pages, beginning Tuesday, will include a Sudoku in addition to the Jumble and a crossword, and we’re now publishing Eugenia Last’s Astrograph for those seeking astrological insight.

A number of new comic strips can also be found on the daily page, including Alley Oop, Monty and Frank n Ernest. Born Loser’s there as well. Also beginning Tuesday, readers can enjoy an adult coloring feature, Color me Posh.

Our revamped Sunday comics, beginning April 29, will feature a number of new additions, including Baldo, Pearls Before Swine, Wallace the Brave and Shortcuts, an educational and fun feature for kids. Also moving from our Tuesday classifieds is the full-color version of Slylock Fox and Comics for Kids. Old favorites are there as well.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that some of our existing content didn’t make the cut.

There’s only so much room on a newspaper page, and in a few cases, tough calls had to be made. But we’re pleased to bring readers these new and improved comics pages — and as with any other aspect of our newspaper, feedback is welcome.
