Reasons to Read the New York Sun:

  • The typography -- the best in New York's dailies

  • They include comics-related events in the calendar
  • The Past & Present item
  • Gary Shapiro
  • Arts & Letters

Reasons to Read the New York Times:

  • The weekly Metropolitan Diary column
  • They gave Martin and Eric's magazine Giant Robot good ink in the July 5 edition
  • Two words: Jodi Kantor
  • The Science Times section
  • The obituaries
  • The Weather Report
  • The Metro section
  • The City section on Sunday, but particularly Michael Pollak's FYI Q&A column
  • Stacy Peralta's A Night Out With column
  • Maureen Dowd
  • The Streetscapes item in the Real Estate section on Sunday
