Peanuts distributor United Media closes down

The Wash. Post's Comic Riffs blog announced that United Media (or United Feature Syndicate, as I'd seen them credited on many of the comic strips under their sponsorship in my childhood) is closing down. Yes, that's right, the company that brought us Peanuts, Garfield and even Dilbert is no more. It's clearly another sad casualty of the slow demise of the newspaper comic strip.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
