In the UK, Private Eye's comics (usually single-frames
Mar 1 2009, 7:34 PM ESTnot panel strips) are a major draw for that fine news mag. They only run a couple of "social commentary" strips (Celebs, Yobettes, It's Grim Up North London) but lots of small, pithy one-offs--which they have never made good use of online... They have a number of other visual humor bits, fake adverts and such, that definitely add to the mix. The Guardian has also made a lot of use of cartoonists and benefited from it, including annual "special issues" and multi-page offerings from top graphic novel artists/writers. I have to admit that Steve Bell's artwork doesn't do much for me but he's definitely popular.
Visual humor definitely works for many readers... Do you find this valuable?
