Via Firedoglake, This Modern World has been dropped from the print edition of The Village Voice (apparently it hasn't been dropped from the online edition.) If you're not familiar with TMW, click here for the most recent strip and here for more. Tom Tomorrow, the creator of the strip, has started a petition asking that it be reinstated.
A small request for New Yorkers, and anyone else who reads the print edition of the Village Voice. As you may have heard, there have been a lot of changes at the Voice in recent months. My own work still runs in the online edition, but has recently been dropped from the print edition (edit: sometime in the last two or three months, not sure exactly when). In other instances when something like this has happened, I’ve suggested that readers send in email to the editor, but the problem with that approach is that it can irritate the editor and end up hurting more than helping. So I’ve decided to try something new — I’ve posted a petition, here, respectfully requesting that the editors reconsider this decision. If you’re a New Yorker and/or a Voice reader, do me a favor and go sign it. When and if I get a decent number of signatures, I’ll pass it along.The image below is part of a strip that ran after the November elections. Click here for the whole thing.
