Fridays, Because... Why Not?

How are both of my loyal readers on this fine Friday?
This week I thought it would be fun to discuss comic strips. I remember reading strips in the local paper for decades. Haven't done that for years I'm afraid. The paper has been downsized to a point where I would never pay that much for it.
Kind of sad.
Nothing replaces the smell of newsprint I'm afraid.
Remember when comics were printed on that stuff?
Awesome!
Anyway, I now just hop on over to Go Comics for my fix.
Here's the rundown;

FRAZZ
Frazz is fun if you consider that the main character could very well be Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes all grown up. That and being a bike rider I appreciate his enthusiasm even when I disagree with how he does it. I'm more of a commuter though so what are you going to do?

THATABABY

Cartoon baby strips can be funny. Thatababy works because they aren't afraid to let their Geek flag fly.

MONTY

This is pretty adult humor for a comic strip, but it is a pretty funny strip. The things that Monty gets himself into are most of the time pretty hilarious.

GET FUZZY

This one is my oldest son's fault. He started reading it so I started reading it. I think he finally gave up on it, but Bucky kills me.

ADAM @ HOME

A guy who writes from home and is addicted to coffee. Yeah, no idea why I like this strip. (Insert sarcasm where appropriate.)

JIM'S JOURNAL

Looks like it is drawn with a sharpie and a pencil. Not funny, but fascinating to read. I love that his cat's name is Mr. Peterson, but she's a girl.

SARAH'S SCRIBBLES

Done is a chaotic rough style this is always funny. I use it to pick on my two daughters who do many things that happen in the strip.

AGNES

Ah, Agnes and her little friend Trout. Raised by her Grandma in a run down trailer park. Agnes never lets any of this get her down and continues on her road to greatness. Always makes me smile.



CUL DE SAC

This is the best strip out there. Creator Richard Thompson says he had to retire due to Parkinson's, but I swear that sometimes I see new strips. Probably my  ancient brain misfiring into the land of wishful thinking. Who knows?
