Varrock Herald pulls "Black and White" comic strip
"Black and White", the daily cartoon starring two lovable penguins, has been pulled from the Varrock Herald's comics page.
The cartoon, drawn by an anonymous artist under the pseudonym "Flipper", had been the target of criticism from readers, who disliked its thick, political humor and had difficulty empathizing with the characters.

"It just wasn't popular," said Reldo Trimmly, editor of the Herald and local comic-strip historian.
"Black and White" will be replaced in the Herald's funny pages with "Monkey Boozeness", a new strip starring three monkeys and an alcoholic pirate.
