Voice throws comics

Disheartening news from the US alternative press: the magazines owned by the Village Voice (including our beloved Denver Westword) have followed the lead of the print edition of The Onion and axed their cartoons.

It's a cost saving in the face of the recession, but Rehabilitating Mr Wiggles calculates the saving as being somewhere around five thousand dollars per title, which - set against the loss of a creative, distinctive voice - seems to be misjudged pittance.
