It’s time to take a look at new comic strips


We’re testing some new strips on our comics pages starting this week.

“Pickles,” about a retired couple navigating their not-always-golden years, is running in place of “Get Fuzzy.”

“Off the Mark” (pictured), a quirky comic in the “Far Side” vein, takes the spot previously occupied by “6 Chix.”

We’ll be testing several strips in those spaces over the next few months, and make a decision based on reader input. Look for more details next week on how to start voting.
