When I was younger I used to love reading the Sunday comics in the newspaper. There are two comic strips in which the creator has retired, but I buy the compilation books and enjoy reading still to this day. Calvin and Hobbes and The Far Side crack me up, even if I've read a certain strip over and over! What do you all like?

"The Far Side" is by far and away the best cartoon ever that I've seen. Sometimes Dilbert gets pretty good and I always liked Andy Cap'.

Neither of my local papers has picked the revived Bloom County /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

The Far Side will never be surpassed.

Speed Bump is pretty funny and The Dinette Set cracks me up because it reminds me of my ex-in-laws.

"The Far Side" and "Calvin and Hobbes" were probably the two best comic strips ever! Last Christmas my hubby got me Gary Larson's total collection of "The Far Side" comic strips. This book has to weigh at least 20 lbs. It was a limited edition, too.

As for "Calvin and Hobbes", I'm still hoping that the "Transmorgrifier" machine is real!

I don't read comic strips.....but I'm reminded of the possible $$ that I threw away.
My uncle worked in a comic book binding factory.....and each month would give me around 40 new comics which I read and gave away.
I could be a comic book $$'aire, at today's prices, for old comics, instead of just being a poor old comic.

Far Side is my all-time favorite, Hagar the Horrible comes second.

I'm a Peanuts fan. I could read that stuff over and over and still laugh.

Along with many others, I think the Far Side is the best.

Also Dilbert, and an online strip called Userfriendly
