Daryl Cagle launched 200 editorial cartoon RSS feeds.
I’d like to elaborate, but that’ pretty much says it all.
Just for fun, I checked Comics.com for feeds. Nada. Zippo. Zilch.
At first I was sort of excited with the RSS symbol in my URL bar:
Clicking it and adding it to my feed reader, I was still hopeful:
But then, bitter disappointment. The actual feed content (highlighted in orange) is just text. It’s not even a link as far as I could tell. I had to click the feed’s title (underlined in blue)…
…to get to the cartoon in my browser:
Let’s compare that with Cagle’s Clay Bennett feed:
I clicked on the 6/1 cartoon and got:
Yep, cartoon right in the feed. As it should be. And some nice stuff at the bottom of the feed to boot.
Even better, click the cartoon or the title and you get:
Oh yeah, that’s the stuff.
Syndicates, you’re already way behind here. Time to take a chance and get some real RSS. Trust me, you’ll be happy you did.

I'll admit that I'm kind of slow when it comes to this RSS thing. I've figured out how to turn my blog into a google widget, but not the Gamecreature cartoons. Maybe once I do, I can put them on an iPhone, eh?
