Little Orphan Annie in the News

Annie, Daddy Warbucks versus the evil labour union leaders.

If readers of this blog are up on Sunday morning and want to catch some comics talk, then you should tune into the CBS show called, appropriately enough, Sunday Morning. They’ll have a segment on Little Orphan Annie. I was interviewed for the segment and the people doing the show really know what they’re talking about, so it should be an interesting overview of Harold Gray’s masterful comic strip.

Because Tribune Media Services is canceling Annie, there have been a number of retrospective articles in the press. Sharon Cohen of AP has an interesting analysis which can be found here, and Michael Taube, a former speech writer to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, weighs in here.

As always, I’d encourage readers to take a look at the Complete Little Orphan Annie series issuing forth at a rapid rate from IDW.

Burger King's true nature

For some inexplicable reason, Adult Swim/Burger King did NOT host the critical Neon Knome election yesterday, as they had announced (and as we mentioned earlier here), but instead waited until late this afternoon to suddenly, and without warning, slip the contest under all interested radars.

Do not let this injustice stand. I don’t know how long this contest will last, so go to the site now to cast your vote for integrity, solid values, and Neon Knome.

Vote and Die

You’ve probably seen the links around the comics webonet, asking people to go to Adult Swim’s website and vote for Michael Kupperman’s Snake N’ Bacon to air on the channel.

You should do that. But don’t forget to return on Monday to vote again, this time for Alfe.

There may be a tough decision in the future if these two champions go up against each other, but I’ll leave that Sophie’s choice up to you. For now.
