Foobest Night: The rise of the zombie strips......

There's another irritating side-effect of the need features editors have to pander to those who don't want their comics page to change with the times. Not only do we have to endure Garfield eating lasagna, Beetle Bailey getting the snot kicked out of him by Sarge, Dagwood colliding with the mailman and so on and so forth, we also have to read strips that have actually finished up their runs. I'm, of course, talking about "Peanuts", "Calvin and Hobbes" and all the others; it seems to me to be a rather silly waste of paper for the local paper to act like the bad guy from DC Comics' "Blackest Night" and make dead strips rise up from the grave. That's because it impresses me as serving the express purpose of accelerating the extinction of all newspaper comics; after all, why would the next generation even want to have them as a feature if all they see is obsolete old crap?
