Takin' the good with the bad

The Comics Reporter gave me a mention last week in reference to my plight in the weeklies. I think they got it right: "One of the underplayed elements of cartoons losing traction in newspaper via the decline in staffed editorial cartoonist positions is that freelancers are treated much differently than a staffed cartoonist in a way that can make it much, much more difficult for that cartoonist."

Another irony in all of this is that I'm continuing to be picked up by the major national newspapers. Go figure.
