Looking for an interesting kid present? Think about a subscription to comics by e-mail. Ten bucks buys a year of daily e-mails from one of the largest comics syndicators. You choose the comics you want included from a reasonably large selection – not everything you want, but enough to be satisfying. (The selection includes reruns of Calvin & Hobbes and Bloom County, plus Foxtrot and some other good ones not covered by the Press Democrat.) Plus online access to archives and a few other goodies. It’s a pretty good deal.
