Your favorite comic strip?

What do you like? If you don't read comics at all, I think you are missing a good ER experience. But I won't hold it against you.

Besides the obvious one (Snoopy) I like The Duplex by Glenn McCoy: https://www.gocomics.com/duplex/2019/01/25

Here is today's:


Here are some sources for a large collection of comics:
https://www.gocomics.com/

https://comicskingdom.com/comics

Another I like is Sherman's Lagoon which you can find in comicskingdom.

I've always like Farside for a different viewpoint.

Being part of the megacorp machine, Dilbert of course.
From the past: The Far Side and Bloom County (which has been relaunched).

I always liked Calvin and Hobbes.

I had this one on my desk for years:

I like Dilbert, and can see the engineer aggravation in that strip. I also like Dagwood.....the frustrations of a working man !

Not a great favorite of mine but a good story of a strip I read as a kid:

There was a comic strip called "Tiger" by Bud Blake and one of the characters was Tiger's brother Punkinhead.

I was sitting in a customer's office one day and there was a framed copy of a Tiger strip on the wall.

Pointing to the strip, my customer said to me: "That's me. I'm Punkinhead. My father is Bud Blake." Blake is a fairly common name so I never made the connection. Pretty cool; made my day.

Great single-framers from the past: The Lockhorns, The Born Loser, The Far Side

Unfathomable Genius: Calvin & Hobbes

More recent: Fox Trot, Zits, Dilbert

Currently: Pearls Before Swine

Back in the 1970s, I liked Doonesbury, but it jumped the shark about 1991 and hasn't been funny since.

Mutts is a sweet little strip with some surprises, such as a Big Lebowski theme several years ago.

Agree on Calvin&Hobbes, Farside, Dilbert.

A good, sardonic webcomic is XKCD.

That's a neat story. That was a decent comic strip.

Calvin & Hobbes and Far Side are my favorites. I've got the hard bound collections.

Gil Thorp was another, until Jack Berrill passed. It went downhill fast after that. I've got some of the softbound archives from the Berrill days.

F-minus. It's new, I think. Saw it in the newspaper. I do the Jumble (anagrams) first, then read the comics.
