I did a search under Comics, Comic Strips, and Comic Strip, and came up with nothing.

I'm curious as to what comic strips members of the HTF read?

I read the following comic strips:


Calvin and Hobbes

Foxtrot (Sundays only)

Foxtrot Classics


Mother Goose and Grimm

Non Sequitur


Wizard of Id


Edited to reflect my paper's redesgin and new color comic page. Yea!

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.

Get Fuzzy!

Foxtrot (My current fave)
Baby Blues
Non Sequitur
Dilbert (Hardly Ever Funny)
Garfield (Never Funny, But Right Above Dilbert)
Beetle Bailey
Hi & Lois
Mother Goose & Grimm

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.

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


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 Posted Image

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. Posted Image

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
