So? I'm on Tomsharware US, this is twice removed from relevent. Besides, it sound like the comic sucked if it couldn't maintain it's newpaper run. There are plenty of regular funny page panels in circulation with no problems, even one that have been on reprint for years (writer died, or series discontinued)
In this current age, it just didn't appeal to a lot of children anymore. Ironic, then, that the last ever printed issue will sell out pretty much everywhere.
Sure, this is the US site, but this is an article about the third longest running comic in history. Irrelevant or not, it certainly entertained and inspired countless children here in the UK. So, it's quite nice to see a mention on an international site.
If we're going to really complain about something worthwhile, it's the countless daily deals articles we used to get for US vendors on every portal which have now thankfully stopped. This is a single article.
