LETTER: Change the BD offer | Letters to the Editor

Edit comic offers

I was subscribed to Observer-Rapporteur since 1970. Over the years, the only habit I have is making the comics page the last thing I read every day. It leaves a good feeling regardless of the rest of the news of any day. I am writing to ask you to consider removing two tapes. The first, and the worst, is Dustin. The main character, a lazy young adult who makes fun of his parents, uninterested in keeping a job, isn’t funny; He is boring. And the rest of the time the jokes are tired: lawyer jokes, big joke jokes, shopaholic jokes. The other band is Sally Forth. This strip became an exploration of a dysfunctional family with few sympathetic characters.

I follow several comics online and can offer replacement suggestions. It would be nice if you could bring Frazz back. New Ideas: Sherman’s Lagoon, Adam@Home, One Big Happy, and a personal favourite: Overboard, an impossible-to-describe strip of modern-day pirates.

I know unions have different prices for different bands and some or all of my suggestions would fail an economic test, but it to have be other, better options out there.
