Assembled Extra: Doonesbury Moves To WaPo From Slate
A few CR
readers recently sent e-mail indicating that Doonesbury
was losing its presence at Slate
, or at least that the primary place people seemed to be reading the feature on-line was its GoComics.com iteration rather than its devoted, old-fashioned, portal-type space at the long-running Internet publication. Andrew Beaujon at Poynter reports here
that the strip will have a devoted presence of similar heft and weight to its Slate
days over at Washington Post
. It looks like a smooth transition, and I would infer from that article it was the first choice of cartoonist Garry Trudeau and his syndicate.
I don't know that I have an initial reaction other than the thought flashed in front of me that the advance of social media may as a communication tool for magazine content may have reduced the desirability of a centralized feature presence for a publication like Slate
. May have. The Post
seems like it would be a good home for the feature.
