Comics Strips and Product Placement


An editors' blog at the Albany Times-Union newspaper digs into a reader's assertion that cartoonists may now be accepting money for product placement in their strip. It turns out to be coincidence, but the issues behind that kind of thing get a good work-out in the process, and is therefore worth a read. One thing I find fascinating is that were it to happen you'd likely have a rejection of this kind of thing on the Americana element that the comics page still effuses for a lot of folks.

one of the cartoons cited, the February 6 Close to Home.
