The Modesto Bee is giving six comics a trial run for four weeks, and the newspaper is asking readers what they think of the new strips and those that the paper already runs. Nearly 9,000 votes have already been cast.
The new comics began last week. To find them, pick up your copy of The Bee off your doorstep or buy one at a newsstand.
To vote, go to this link. You'll need to register, and that takes only a minute or so. (Note: The registration required is in addition to your normal registration for modbee.com.)
The survey allows you to rank The Bee's existing and trial comics on a scale of 1 to 10; you can vote as often as once a day, so if a trial comic grows on you — or loses your interest — that change will be reflected.
To express yourself beyond simply rating the funnies, you can e-mail your thoughts to Bee features editor Deke Farrow at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to him at The Modesto Bee, Deke Farrow, 1325 H St., Modesto, CA 95356.
