The Kansas City-based Uclick is best known for bringing Jeff Smith's "Bone" and dozens of other comics titles to the iPhone and other mobile devices, but its reach could potentially extend further into the world of print now that its parent company has merged with Universal Press Syndicate, and renamed it Uclick Universal.

Universal Press Syndicate is best known for syndicating comic strips like "Doonesbury, "Garfield," "Calvin and Hobbes," and "The Far Side," and with the merger in place it may not be long before the merged print and digital company brings even more comic products into the mobile market. After all, newspaper and other print circulation numbers aren't exactly improving these days.
