The world has changed a lot since the last time Bloom County graced the comic pages on news papers. Perhaps, The most important change to a political cartoonist is that the very medium they used to spread ideas is just about extinct today.
Sure the Internet does provide a larger audience, but there is just something about the tactile experience in opening a news paper, the rough, yet pliant paper, the musky smell of ink, I think it was the shared experience we had that can’t be recreated in the pixilated universe.
On Sundays you knew that if you missed the paper it would be hard to find a copy the next day and it sure sucked when someone said, “hey great comic strip this weekend”, now you can just google it anytime. Yes, things have changed, I guess we’ll have to be satisfied with the stiff feel of the keyboard instead of paper–the smell? I guess you can light a patchouli candle, you hippies!
