What comic strips do you read regularly? What are your favorites.

I read my comics in Newsday. My favorites are:


The others that I read in the order of appearance are:
  • Garfield
  • Classic Peanuts: The peak years of Peanuts would rate as a favorite
  • Baby Blues
  • Blondie
  • Hagar the Horrible
  • The Lockhorns
  • Ziggy
  • Mutts
  • Dennis the Menace
  • Non Sequitur
  • Helen Sweetheart of the Internet
  • The Wizard of Id

I occasionally read For Better or for Worse and Zits.

What every happened to Funky Winkerbean? Not much of a comic but my favorite balloon in the parade.

Has anyone been following Opus? I saw the first one but don't normally get a Sunday paper..
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 9 months ago
Is this a bloom county sequel?
nate... Back · 18 years, 9 months ago
Death to the Extremist

Sluggy Freelance

User Friendly

Real Life

Penny Arcade

Other than those... the standards of Dilbert, Calvin and Hobbes, and Foxtrot.

EDIT: Oh, and also War Bucket

my favourite ones are the ones that use commas. but that's another story.

I read Close to Home, Speed Bump, That's Life, Zits, Get Fuzzy, Pearls Before Swine, Foxtrot, Dilbert, Mutts, The Boondocks, Doonesbury, and Non Sequtur fairly religiously. I also tend to look at Classic Peanuts, Blondie, Beetle Bailey, Hagar the Horrible, Frank and Earnest, Shoe, Garfield, One Big Happy, Rhymes With Orange, and Pickles when my eyes happen to catch something amusing in them, but I don't particularly care if I miss them. and I read Sherman's Lagoon on Sundays, because I love anthropomorphism. I'd read Over the Hedge, too, if the Post carried it.

I also read The Wizard of Id and BC to see if Hart is up to his usual antics, and I read Baldo because it's where Dilbert used to be until they foolishly moved it to the Business section of the Post.

I've actually managed to break the habit of reading Dennis the Menace and Family Circus, though. it bothers me that the Post decided to alternate That's Life with Close to Home instead of replacing one of the other boring and stupid single panel comics with it. they've started doing that with Speed Bump, too, now, and yet they still waste space with Bil Keane's right idiocy.

and of course, I used to read the Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes when they were still going. (that's another thing - why are we getting unfunny Peanuts reruns and not Calvin and Hobbes reruns?)
lawrence Back · 18 years, 9 months ago
oh duh, I forgot to list the webcomics I read. heh. Sluggy Freelance, Goats, Something Positive, User Friendly, and Megatokyo. I'd read Waiting for Bob, too, if it ever came back.
dave "buh" Back · 18 years, 9 months ago
Yeah, it started a few weeks ago, Sundays only.

get fuzzy, fox trot, agnes, dilbert, boondocks, zits, and for better or for worse are the ones i read because i like them. i read most of the rest to make fun of them. especially brenda starr. i'm so hooked on the perky/pug/napster drama, it isn't even funny.
Janos Back · 18 years, 9 months ago

I read the comics every day, and these are my top 3 favourites from the ones in my paper:

1. Dilburt
2. Monty
3. Zits

Rachel Marie aka RAI · 18 years, 9 months ago
When I'm at home, I read all of the comics except Doonsbury, Rex Morgan M.D. (which is kinda funny to me because it's named after my grandfather), and sometimes The Piranha Club because it's just dumb and I don't know why I read it in the first place.

The comics I really enjoy are:

Fox Trot
For Better or For Worse
Zits (Jeremy *IS* my younger brother)
Non Sequitur
Get Fuzzy
Pearls Before Swine
goovie is married! Back · 18 years, 9 months ago
ahahaha. the d&c comics suck so much. they're like the sun-times comics here in chicago. i actually wrote a song about how bad the sun-times comics are. i am lame.
Talcott · 18 years, 9 months ago
I don't get the paper, so I pretty much read the three that I get through Yahoo, which is Boondocks, Doonsbury, and Fox Trot.
My parents are also saving the sunday comics for me so I can read Opus.
When I get the paper, I tend to read all of the comics, even the bad ones. Some I like more than others though. Zits and Dilbert both have good moments. The Far Side rip-offs are sometimes funny (not often). I really like For Better or Worse, but since I don't tend to keep up on it, I find myself lost at times.
Get Fuzzy has it's moments too, more than most of the newer comics, but a lot of the time it comes off as a Sluggy Freelance clone/ripoff.

I used to read a number of web comics, but not much recently.
Annika · 18 years, 9 months ago
I miss Calvin and Hobbes that was one of two I read on a regular basis.  For better or for worse, being my other favorite.
Geoff Back · 18 years, 9 months ago

The Boondocks, Over The Hedge, FoxTrot, Dilbert, Non Sequitur, Peanuts, and Zits, offline.

warbucket bleedin' owns. :D

oh man, there's one other one that a friend of mine has been pointing me to that i think you would totally dig.  i'll find the link and send it your way.  more stuff about video games and whatnot, but with a real nice twist.

J. Andrew World Back · 18 years, 9 months ago

I read Partiallyclips myself!  It's filled with very funny stuff.  If you don't like the first one you read, keep reading because the humor is just that broad. 

I am not just saying that because there is one (7-13-03) has my art on it. 

George E. Nowik Back · 18 years, 9 months ago

there we go.

well when i can i read for better and for worse, garfield and snoopy/peanuts (far side and calvin and hobbes used to be part of that list too many moons ago.

lately i've been WAY into graphic novels (a distant relative of the comic strip so still relevant to the thread - HA!).  my first love was elfQuest, but most recently i've been obsessed with reading manga.  My collection currently includes Cowboy Beebop, Cardcaptor Sakura: Master of the Clow, Dragon Knights, Hack//Sign, Iron Wok Jan, Planet Ladder, Nausaciaa of the Valley of Winds, Inu-Yasha, Ranma 1/2, Juline, Shaolin Sisters, Castle in the Clouds, and Spirited Away. Soon to be adding Trigun, Shaman King, and Chronicles of the Cursed Sword.   anyone else as obsessed or at least read manga?

Zippy! Then Doonesbury, then Boondocks, then Peanuts, then Curtis. Then Zippy again to see if I understand it any better. :P
Misch Back · 18 years, 8 months ago
It should be noticed that there is a blatant Fruvous reference in today's UserFriendly
Michelle Huffman · 18 years, 8 months ago
Especially today's. ;)
nate... Back · 18 years, 8 months ago
Yeah, that cracked me up. :)
dirty life & times Back · 18 years, 8 months ago
i am tentatively into manga. tentative because i know it's such a big medium, & i don't know how much of it i'd like if i just dove in.

but i worship akira (& anything by the author/artist) & i like astro boy. i love cowboy bebop, but i didn't know it was a manga as well? same with spirited away.
Eri · 18 years, 8 months ago

I used to read a dozen webcomics and everything in the paper.

Now, I occasionally flip by PA or PVP, and when I'm at mom and dad's I pull out the newspaper to read Heart of the City.

Joe Navratil · 18 years, 8 months ago
Tab groups are my friend. Every morning when I get to work, the first thing I do is pop open a new Safari window and open my Comics group in tabs: PvP (which means I get to read the day before's, since he seems to update for a given day at 6pm), Angst Technology (almost on hiatus as long as I've been Waiting for Bob), User Friendly (out of some sort of geek loyalty, not because I've been entertained by it at any point in the past year), Sinfest, Penny Arcade, Goats, Bob the Angry Flower (which only pays off once a week, but it's almost always worth it), and Knights of the Dinner Table (most of which I've read in the paper version before they recycle them on the web).

Oh, and I've got a "My Yahoo!" page that shows me Bookdocks, Foxtrot, and In The Bleachers if I ever remember to check it.
lawrence Back · 18 years, 8 months ago
heh. yeah, I use tab groups for webcomics, too, but I have two of them - "daily" and "monday/wednesday/friday only," so I don't get tabs I automatically want to close. :)

I remeber what I forgot

I've gotten something like 7 people to celebrate winter-een-mas,  they have no idea what the hell it is.
