Jeff Bacon's "Broadside", of course.

As a young ensign he was responsible for giving training to some of his troops and fellow officers. He illustrated his teaching points with cartoons, and it just sort of got out of hand from there.

He's an equal-opportunity artist who makes fun of every Navy community, and the other services as well. He told me once that he has a three-inch binder full of admiral's hate mail retraction request letters.

This cartoon was originally published in 1993 when the earlier women's combat-exclusion law was repealed. He did the encore last year when the submarine force was opened to women:

Scott Adams' Dilbert.
Wally is my hero.
Here is one of my favorites before I retired.

Dilbert comic strip for 06/22/2008 from the official Dilbert comic strips archive.

Edit. I would rather attach the strip but I am not sure about the copyrights. If it is OK, can somebody make the attachment please.

KingB, here is my fave Dilbert--I have it on a t-shirt, even.
Dilbert comic strip for 09/07/2001 from the official Dilbert comic strips archive.

But my boss got me this one in a printed lithograph for my office:

I really like Simon's Cat for animated cartoons

The way the cat points at his mouth and meows is hilarious!

Highly recommend Footrot Flats cartoon books by NZ cartoonist Murray Ball to you - I think that farmers and ranchers who have lived the broke down patch-it-up country life appreciate the truth in his cartooning - it just cracks me up!

No love yet for Bill Watterson? Creator of Calvin and Hobbes!

I also used to enjoy Foxtrot quite a bit, Dilbert is good, and I like Monroe (XKCD, mentioned above) more for the clever things he does than the humor, persay.

Saturday morning breakfast cereal is another decent online comic. The had a good one a day or two ago about the designed universe argument for god.

My Favorite, when Wally tells his boss that he has enough money to retire anytime he wants! Had a T-shirt made, that I love to wear.

Oh, I had one of his books that a friend bought me when she lived over there. She got it because of my border collies. I loved it--must unearth it and re-read. Thanks for the reminder.

I always enjoyed Gary Larson's "The FarSide" cartoons.

Dilbert, Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side.

Foxtrot is reliably entertaining, as is Get Fuzzy.

I'm a little ashamed to admit it, but I usually get a chuckle out of The Lockhorns

I always loved Charles M. Schultz' Peanuts comics, especially Snoopy and Woodstock.

Mr Schultz obviously knew about the concept of "what did you do today?"

Another big vote for "the Farside", love Gary's warped sense of humor.
Just wish he'd come back....
