a message from danny boy...

over at http://ohdannyboy.blogspot.com
be real people. We already mentioned it on radio by the way danny!

Well it happened.

The Sunday Mail have removed pretty much all of their Australian created and produced comic strips from their papers - so no more Ginger Meggs, Snake Tales, Swamp and the like. Other strips like The Phantom, Hagar and Charlie Brown have also been given the boot. They;ve been replaced with such quality strips as Rug Rats, Spy Kids, Spider-man and Scooby Doo - American created and produced comics that have absolutely nothing to do with Australian culture, or content. As I predicted the majority of the strips that have replaced the Australian ones are properties owned Fox - a Murdoch group - which also owns NewsCorp - who also own the Advertiser/Sunday Mail.

You can contact the Sunday Mail on the following:
