PRESS RELEASE: “Daddy’s Home” Canadian Sales Boom

Anthony Rubino sent this in, noting "I lived in Bethesda for 15 years before moving to NYC 3 years ago."  That's on-topic enough for me.

In Addition To Steadily Increasing Sales In The US, "Daddy's Home" Continues To Sell Briskly In Canada Where The Comic Breaks Ground With New Paid Internet Sales
In addition to steady sales and growing popularity in The US, it seems our friends to the North have taken a liking to Peter and the "Daddy's Home" gang. This month, Creator's Syndicate's national sales director, Margo Sugrue sold "Daddy's Home" (By Anthony Rubino, Jr. and Gary Markstein) to a consortium of websites there, under the umbrella; and its 28 subsidiary sites. This translates to 56 new sales in 28 markets (28 daily accounts and 28 Sunday accounts). The sales come in the wake of Creator's Sun Media deal, earlier this year, in which "Daddy's Home" picked up six new, major daily and Sunday Canadian markets (Calgary Sun, Edmonton Sun, Toronto Sun, Ottawa Sun, Winnipeg Sun and The Branford Expositor). "DH" is also in several smaller Canadian papers.
Among the 28 "paid-subscription-only" sites under the umbrella are:  London Free Press, Brockville Record and Times, Chattam Daily News,  Bellville Intelligencer,  The Barrie Examiner, Peterborough Examiner, The Sault Star, Northumberland Today, North Bay Nugget, Cornwall Standard Freeholder, and more.
"Daddy's Home" US print newspaper clients include "The Chicago Sun-Times," The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Lexington Herald Leader, The Bismarck Tribune, The Duluth News-Tribune, Arizona Central and The Amarillo Globe-News to name a few. These coupled with the Canadian accounts puts "Daddy's Home's" total newspaper client list at more than 100 papers. In addition, "DH" currently boasts just over 200 newspaper and "other" websites contracts. bringing the combined print and online total to approximately 300.
In other news, "DH" is currently in the midst of a wildly successful Caption contest, which closes on 8/20. We currently have more than 1000 entries. Readers will cast their votes on the finalists starting on 8/23.
And in breaking news…
Earlier today, Creators Syndicate announced that "Daddy's Home" will be tested in "Newsday," starting this Sunday, August 15.
"Daddy's Home" was launched in 2008.
