St. Petersburg Times’ Comics Shifts

After spotlighting the comic strip changes at the Sacramento Bee, I received a few e-mails saying that the St. Petersburg Times, apparently Florida's largest newspaper has also made change by which we might divine a trend or two. The Times' moves look more like a standard new strip pump-up, with Dog Eat Doug, Watch Your Head. Peach Fuzz, and F Minus stepping in for a combination of a shifting around of features, dropping Cathy and Opus, and the Boondocks hiatus. The Opus drop is pretty interesting. I don't think that strip launched with a huge, huge number, and we know Breathed has walked away twice before -- it makes me wonder if Andrews McMeel went with a Complete Bloom County collection if that might not happen.
