A comic book newspaper would likely annoy all potential audiences. Too many pictures distracting from the words for some. Too many words distracting from the art for others. And before anyone cries foul at artists having to draw all those panels, I just assume in a few years computer can repurpose old images for that day’s news.
RICK: It's the new Batman comic!
RICK: You know, there should be comic books that cover important things, too! Things like politics and economics. Sort of the stuff we learn in class, but up to date. Like, what's going on and what we need to know right now.
HOBO: You just described a newspaper.
RICK: But that Obama guy in them is so weak looking. He could never take on Bane!
