We don’t often talk a lot of truly inside shop here, not the business end anyway, but I received some good news. Arlo and Janis has been added to the comics line-up in The News and Observer, in Raleigh, NC. Comic strips that have been around as long as A&J don’t add major newspaper clients every day. This is a very good sign.
Frankly, the strip never has had a large presence in the middle Atlantic states, which makes this even better news. I appreciate the editors having confidence in me, and I especially appreciate readers who expressed themselves in the newspaper’s recent polling. The News and Observer is a prestigious paper. I’m thrilled!
