Comic Strip

Give us all the news on newspapers and comics

I would like to know more about the production process of a newspaper. As newspapers are one of the most important media in the world, I have a strong curiosity to know how people collect news and publish it. I think many other students have the same interest.

Look out for the new Young Post cartoon strips

I think comics are a bad influence on children. The majority of comics involve violence and sex. These topics are not suitable for children under 15.

It's unhealthy for teenagers to identify with a character who is a hero but kills people.

Also, comics simply tell stories; they don't have educational value.

Make your own newspaper

Publishing a newspaper involves more than just filling the pages. A paper needs to inform and entertain to keep the reader's attention.

But not all readers are the same. Some like to read every page; others just flip through until something catches their eye.

Cartoon evil

I AGREE with C. K. Lau's article on cartoons, 'All Wrapped Up' (South China Morning Post, March 18). Cartoons and comic strips have become very popular especially with teenagers. Nowadays, shops everywhere are selling them and most teenagers can buy or rent them easily too.

Drawn to nightmares

DIMMED lights, spooky music, the delicious shiver down the spine - it's all part of the fun of reading about ghosts and ghouls. But these days, teenagers' taste for horror stories may give them 'thrills' that will badly disturb their sleep, experts say.

Alley Oop, a caveman, rode into the comics astride Dinny the dinosaur nearly 60 years ago. Though Hamlin retired in 1971, Alley Oop still appears in 700 newspapers around the world.
