How to read newspaper comics
New Zealanders can get a taste of the future when they start reading comics on Friday.
News Limited is celebrating its 50th anniversary of its flagship newspaper, The New Zealand Herald, with the release of a series of comic strips from the paper’s archive.
The strip is set in New Zealand, with a man reading a newspaper with a comic strip board.
News Ltd, the company that publishes The New York Times, the Guardian, the Daily Mail, the Financial Times and many other newspapers, is making a statement of intent with the comic strip, which will be published in print and digital across all its outlets, beginning on Friday, January 4.
The comic strip will feature an American reporter reading a New Zealand newspaper.
The strips will include commentary from News Ltd’s journalists and editors, as well as features from artists like Alex Dorkin and Chris Sims.
News Corp has previously released an animated version of the comic strips as part of a digital release in 2017.
News Corporation has released an animation version of The New New Zealand Guardian, and it also released a comic book series, The Kiwi Comic Book, in 2017, with characters such as Kiwi Superman and Kiwi Man.
New Zealand is also the birthplace of comic books, and the country has been home to comic books for over a century.
New media New Zealand has a strong cultural presence in the arts, with more than 200 film and television shows being produced each year.
Newspaper comic strips are produced by News Ltd and have a long history in New England.
In the mid-1960s, the newspaper comics featured in The New England Register were inspired by a story about a group of Kiwis who wanted to move to Australia to escape the “dirty” conditions of New Zealand.
A group of American journalists were invited to the New Zealand community in Australia to see if they could find the right place to live and work, but the newspaper comic strip writers quickly realised that the Australians didn’t want them, so they changed the story to a tale about Kiwis moving to Australia in search of better conditions.
