And now for something completely different (no, not Monty Python). I've been reading the comic strips since I was a kid and I've been hooked on the ever since. I don't receive the local paper so I read the strips on two websites. For the last 15 plus years I've been reading the following strips and more:
Garfield
Pickles
Calvin and Hobbs
Pluggers
Funky Winkerbean
Peanuts
Jump Start
Baby Blues
Bizzaro
Non Sequitur
Crankshaft
Zits

So, which comic strips do you read?

Tom Tomorrow is a fave, but he's awfully political and not always carried by most local papers, including mine.

I'm still a fan of Doonesbury.

I was a fan, way back when, of Gary Larson's Far Side. It's weird, most faculty offices on campus often have Far Side cartoons on them.

Jeeze.....hadn't thought about it. It's been years since we've received the Sunday paper. Haven't really read them since then.

Bloom County was my favorite.

This is one of my favs.........

The Calvin and Hobbes strips are reruns but they're still as funny as they were when they first came out.

Here are two sites where you can read comic strips online.
Oregonlive
Denver Post

I should add I am a big fan of Bloom County, too.

Especially the guy in a wheelchair, Cutter John, who decided he was a Starship Captain.

Also when Bill the Cat ran for POTUS. Several times.

I'm glad he's gone back to doing Bloom County. Calling his strip anything else, like "Outland," when he was still using all the same characters, like Opus, didn't feel right.

I believe the premise (in the first Outland) was that the characters had accidentally walked into some kind of space/time warp and emerged in a parallel universe.
