Do you read the daily newspaper comics? You know the ones I’m talking about … Peanuts, Dilbert, Dagwood, Garfield, The Born Loser, etc., etc.
I think many of us do. It’s a nice change from all the “bad news” that so often dominates the headlines (and everywhere else you look).
Anyway, I thought it might be fun to share our favorites. I’ve listed the strips that our local paper carries — yours may be different.
- Frank and Ernest
- Sally Forth
- For Better of For Worse
- The Born Loser
- Get Fuzzy
- Pearls Before Swine
- Non Sequitur
- Beetle Bailey
- Phoebe and Her Unicorn
- Hagar the Horrible
- Dennis the Menace
- The Family Circus
My #1 Favorite is Pickles. Probably because it frequently represents things that occur in our household.
My other “daily reads” are Zits, Beetle Bailey, Peanuts, Garfield, Dilbert, Blondie. I also like Hagar the Horrible, but it’s only printed on Sundays.
Some of the older strips I used to like — Popeye, Nancy, Archie, Flintstones — seem to have disappeared. At least they aren’t included in our local paper. (Am I dating myself?)
BTW, I’ve been rather disappointed in Garfield lately. Not sure what it is, but to me Jim Davis is losing his edge. Any of you feel the same?
Anyway — it’s time to share! Tell us about YOUR favorites — as well as the ones you never read.
P.S. Of course this post is based on the assumption some or all of you still subscribe to and read print newspapers. 🙂
