      Newspapers are on a steep decline, and chances are they won't be around in a few years.

    I think USA Today may be an exception. See my next response.

      Newspapers also have an even older customer demographic than comics do, where the average age for a newspaper reader is 55. In comics, I would guess it's somewhere around 35. So it's not like you are getting the young readers this way.

    I realize this link is in reference to the weekend magazine, but it's the best I could quickly find showing demographics and circulation for USA Today:

Even USAToday, which has been the trend breaker, recently reported a steep drop in sales. Hotels are beginning to stop giving them to guests.

    If the link I found is at all relevant to the weekday circulation and demographics, USA Today reaches millions of people in the target age range.

Yeah, they're selling 2+ million copies a day.

Anyway, like newspapers, the best alternative is for digital comics.

City of Heroes is BACK!
