Impromptu Comics/Newspapers Round-Up

Here's a few things that seem interconnected and not big enough for their own entries:

* the cartoonist Jan Eliot notes in brutal fashion the shrinking size of newspaper comic strips since she started, which is either 1990 or 1995 depending on whether she's talking about national syndication or not.

* at least one easily-googleable on-line media commentator has criticized a syndicated Chip Bok cartoon about President Obama's decision to nominate Sonia Sotomayor.

* that Gary McCoy abortion cartoon is back up on Daryl Cagle's site, along with the firestorm of commentary it's instigated there. Like I thought I might, I intensely dislike the cartoon, but it's so rare for anyone to do anything on that subject it's worth noting.
