Newspapers were a big part of people’s lives back in the days of print entertainment. They were how people received not only their news about Busniess, the World, Sports but it was how they had a laugh while drinking their coffee before work. Comic Strips such as Peanuts were incredibly loved during the height of the newspaper and they are coming back!
