    The only comic I have cared about since my beloved Calvin and Hobbes departed.

    Ever since Bloom County, Calvin & Hobbes and The Far Side stopped running, I've stopped reading strips, as the majority of them today are crap (The Boondocks is the only decent strip out there).

    Foxtrot.

    I read a while back that a new Opus strip was coming out, but I've never seen it. Anyone know anything about it?

    Opus is Berke Breathed's new Sunday-only strip that started in January. It's usually fantastic in the way the old Bloom County was. I think he's definitely found his groove again and I look forward to reading it first thing every Sunday morning.

    Strips I'm Petitioning to Be Removed From My Newspaper:
    Family Circus (I hate this strip with the white-hot fury of a thousand supernovae)
    Dennis the Menace
    Soap strips

    My newspaper hasn't changed their comics page in years... not since they added Zits and Baby Blues. I used to read Over the Hedge before it became really political.

    Prince Valiant (I've read this ever since I could read)

    Dilbert

    Peanuts

    So many great strips have gone by the wayside, but I especially miss Pogo, The Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes.

    Calvin and Hobbes should be one of the funniest comic strips I've ever read. I don't even know if they print that anymore in the paper.

    Does anyone else read Red Meat? Milkman Dan kills me. He's such an a-hole.

    That new Far Side collection book is calling me. But alas, its so expensive...

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...books&n=507846

    That, along with Calvin and Hobbs, tops anything I have seen in the funnies in quite some time. A shame they are no longer with us [​IMG]

    CTRL+ALT+DEL is my favorite comic, on- or off-line. It's mainly geared for video gamers / computer users / college humor, but since that pretty much describes me, I find it hilarious. [​IMG]

    They don't but the San Francisco Comic Art Museum had a great exhibit a while ago of the original drawings. Everyone was rolling on the ground in laughter.
    BTW if you come to San Francisco Blow off Fishermans Wharf and go here
