News Around the Kingdom: Comics Censorship in Newspapers
Dear Comics Royals!
Another fun week draws to a close! We hope you had a wonderful week. Did you see that we added the winner of our Vintage Madness poll, “Secret Agent X-9,” to our amazing lineup of vintage comics already available? Comics Royal subscribers can read “Secret Agent X-9” here.
Also, the first “Carpe Diem” Sunday comic was published. If you haven’t yet, please add the comic by Swedish cartoonist, Niklas Eriksson, to your favorites to keep up with all of his offbeat humor and antics!
