Break of Day Debut in the Newspaper is Set!

16 Apr

I announced this on Facebook a week or so ago, but yes, the rumors are true.  Break of Day is making its newspaper debut on May 2nd!

We will be in the funny pages five days a week, premiering in the Tampa Bay Times (TBT*).  For me, this is the absolute best paper I could imagine debuting in.  As an analogy, this is like The Doors playing at the Whiskey A Go-Go.  TBT is the fastest growing newspaper around here, with well over 146,000 daily readers and 205,100 weekend readers.  It’s a great launching pad for eventual expansion into more territory.  And it’s owned and operated by The St Petersburg Times – Florida’s largest newspaper.

I love this paper too, because the general audience is younger and the paper has an “edge” to it.  Just right for Break of Day.  (You know, we get to the edge sometimes.)

I’m the only non-syndicated comic in the paper, so I’ll be next to Dilbert and Pearls Before Swine, so it’s quite the honor to be amongst the pros.

This is a launching pad, and I can promise you that the journey has just begun for the feature.  We’ll be hitting more newspapers momentarily (or the I-Pad…whatever comes first).  There is some more exciting things in the works right now for Break of Day, so we’ll keep you filled in here.

So, fly down to Florida on May 2nd and grab a copy or two.  It’s worth the trip!  (And stop by the beach while your at it!)

      Thanks, George! It’s true what they say, “Hard work is hard.” Or is that, “Hard Work pays off” or something like that? Hmm….anyhow, keep up the good work as well, sir. I’m learning more and more that cartooning has plenty of opportunities for whatever it is that one wants to go.
