So you’ve already had a few days to take a look at the changes in daily comics, advice columns and riddles from The Times and the Democrats.
We’ve heard from our readers about the changes – some pros, but mostly cons. In reality, this is to be expected. Fortunately, people become familiar and comfortable with daily newspaper articles and generally don’t like them to change.
So what do the daily changes mean for the Sunday edition, which traditionally has a different lineup to include color comics?
First, color comics aren’t going away. Their format is changing. Rather than a separate comics section, you’ll find Sunday comics in the Sunday Magazine C section (today on C4 and C5). The comic lineup has a few changes, but we think you’ll like what you see.

Also inside the Sunday Magazine, you’ll find Sunday puzzles – including LA Times crosswords, Sudoku and Jumble – and the daily What to Watch TV. The daily advice columns can be found on page C3.
Not to mention, you now get an additional page of comics exclusively on our E-edition platform at www.TheTandD.com, and you’ll also soon have access to nearly 500 comics, dozens of puzzles, and several new syndicated columnists on our website.
The new E-only Comics Extra page is now available daily. The rest of the hundreds of available digital-only comics, puzzles, and chronicles will be available on our website in the coming weeks.
