retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Tribune Media Services said over the weekend that it will no longer publish the “Little Orphan Annie” comic strip, which was launched 86 years ago and spawned Broadway musicals and movies.

Not that many people are likely to notice. At the end, only 20 newspapers in the US, were running the strip.

The company tells the New York Daily News that “Annie could continue in the form of graphic novels, film, TV, games and maybe even on cell phones.”
