View Full Version : Favorite comic strip?
10-12-2004, 11:50 PM
There are a few comic strips that I love but there are none that stand out better than Calvin & Hobbes. Anyone remember that strip? I can't believe it's been almost been 9 years since the strip ended. I remember when I first heard about it. I was shocked because I read it religiously and that it was doing so well and then Bill Watterson abruptly announced his retirement.
Even though it's no longer around, I still think it is one of the greatest comic strips ever. I was never a big fan of the early strips (Calvin & Hobbes, Something Under the Bed is Drooling, and Yukon Ho). I like the strips from "Weirdos from Another Planet" and later the best.
The strip that replaced it in the San Diego Union Tribune was "Mutts." I tried getting into it but I couldn't. The strip is still in that slot today.
My favorite comics of all time are probably The Far Side and Calvin And Hobbes.
Right now, the comics page is uninteresting to me, with the exceptions of The Boondocks (which my backwards-ass local newspaper refuses to run) and Fox Trot.

Off the Mark and Bizarro.

No contest here...Peanuts!
There are many current comic stips I like:
Pearls Before Swine (new to my area)
Dilbert (still very funny)
Cathy (finally that neurotic psycho is getting married)
Herman (the best single panel comic strip)
another one I like is For better Or Worse, mostly because it is one of the only comic strips that allowed the characters to grow up and age! The friggin Family Circus kids have been infants for thirty years!
