Traditionally, throughout the 20th century and into the 21st, these have been published in newspapers and magazines, with horizontal strips printed in black-and-white in daily newspapers, while Sunday newspapers offered longer sequences in special color comics sections.

Other cartoonists followed the trend set by Fisher, as noted by comic strip historian R. C. Harvey:

Winnie Winkle

Denny DimwitWinnie Winkle the Breadwinner
Strips had an ancillary form of distribution when they were clipped and mailed, as noted by the Baltimore Sun's Linda White: "I followed the adventures of Winnie Winkle, Moon Mullins and Dondi, and waited each fall to see how Lucy would manage to trick Charlie Brown into trying to kick that football. (After I left for college, my father would clip out that strip each year and send it to me just to make sure I didn’t miss it.)"
During its first years, the daily Winnie Winkle evolved from simple gags to more complex humorous situations.
