For Immediate Release
April 3, 2006
Portico Publications has entered a blog-partnership with award-winning cartoonist Jen Sorensen, whose comic strip, Slowpoke, appears nationally in over 20 magazines and alt weeklies. Portico, publisher of C-Ville Weekly, Columbia Free-Times,and Augusta Metro Spirit, will introduce Sorensen’s blog on their website effective April 4.
“Just like lawyers, there are too many bloggers in the world,” says Portico’s Rob Jiranek. “But the world can always use another good one. Working with Jen is our humble attempt to make the world of blogs, errr, I mean the Blogosphere, a better place.”
“If there’s comic relief or a dose of sanity in Slowpoke, I’m hopeful this partnership will help spread it,” says Sorensen.
Portico’s Slowpoke blog will join more than a dozen other alt weeklies in a blog network test launching this month.
