I like Zits too and think he is the teenager Calvin might have grown up to be. I also like Mutts, a LOT. I loved Pogo.

One comic I really did not like was Family Circus but DH heard cartoonist Lynda Barry talk about it a few years ago and I realized there is a place for sweet little items like it. Here are some well-known cartoonists' comments on Bil Keane and his strip that are interesting I think: BIL KEANE MEMORIAM: Fellow cartoonists remember the ‘Family Circus’ creator [UPDATED] - Comic Riffs - The Washington Post

Calvin & Hobbes
Pearls Before Swine
Bloom County

Not necessarily in that order - these are all so good, it's hard to rank them.

Another one I enjoy, although not sure I'd call it a comic, is Penny Arcade. Those guys have a brutal sense of humor when it comes to gaming and tech, and I love it.

No one has mentioned my favorite: "Crankshaft"!---and one of my daughters is now driving a school bus, so it's a win-win.

Them and Far Sides.

The local paper here doesn't carry much worthwhile, just Dilbert. The others I skim through though.

Favorite comics

My all time favotire is Peanuts. I have "clipped and kept" more "Herman" cartoons than any other comic. Enjoyed "The Born Loser" and "the Far Side", too.

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal

It's for science / engineer kind of oriented people about real life.

Dilbert, Pearls, Get Fuzzy.

Does anyone have the syndicated one-panel cartoon called "Working It Out" in their paper? If you think Pickles is trite and hackneyed, take a look at Working It Out. Think of any 10 clichéd work situations, and I guarantee at least 8 of them will be the subject of that cartoon in a month's time.

Link to a typical example: http://www.arcamax.com/newspics/113/11329/1132928.gif

1. FoxTrot
2. Non Sequitur
3. Zits
4. Pearls
5. xkcd

Off-comic, if you like xkcd and are into math & science, be sure to read Randall's weekly blog "What If". In it, he responds with accurate, but hilarious answers to bizarre science and math questions from his readers.

Favorite comic strip featured the character Joe Bfstk. Anyone remember who this was, and the name of the comic strip?

Well heck yeah - into each life some rain must fall, but Joe took it to extremes.

How about

Remember Abner's pride in being able to pay taxes?
