Back in the day, Sunday strips seemed like the highlight of the week, and everybody brought their A-Game. Lately, it seems as if a lot of artists kind of phone in the Sunday gag.
Now, I’m not saying the overall quality of the strips have gone down, just that Sunday has been non-prioritized (along with Saturday, which has always been a dead zone).
And I’m thinking this might be because people are no longer reading Sunday comics in all their large, all-color glory: now almost all comics are in color seven days a week, and online comic readers might actually be less likely to read a Sunday comic than a weekday comic.
I wouldn’t submit this as hard evidence, of course, but I do know that Sunday traffic on CIDU is generally about half of Monday’s.
I don’t know… any thoughts?
