The News & Observer E-edition is a web-based product for those of you who (like me) still have a fondness for the printed version of our newspaper. It was a LONG time in coming. The company that powers it, Olive Software, takes care of the online presentation and functionality, but we still have to send them the actual printed paper every night, in electronic format.
But that's a whole other story...
More importantly: we've had the E-edition for a little more than a year now, but it's been missing possibly the most vital tool ever invented for bridging the generation gap: comics. The comics section isn't actually printed at the N&O, so we have to get the electronic version of it separately from the rest of the paper, and only recently has our Circulation department secured the rights to this content. Thanks, Scott!
Upshot: you will see the full-color comics section in the E-edition starting on 8/2.
