Anyone have any favorite comic strips no longer around?
Back in the 1970's, I enjoyed this one called "Tumbleweeds."

16. Am I a bad mother because I regularly
subject Dropkid to that type of explanation when the "why" days get to be a bit much?

If I had a child, I'd probably be guilty of it myself at times!

20. Calvin and Hobbes is clearly
my favorite too. Bill Watterson has certainly captured the sage wisdom of a father in your above examples.

2. Calvin and Hobbes, most definitely.
Bill Waterson was an artist, true to his form.
The Far Side is definitely missed as well.
In times like these, I miss those voices in the paper, so poignant...

7. I was a Tumbleweeds fan...
When I was about 10, I made a 3-foot tall 'Weeds and posed for a picture and sent two prints of it to Tom Ryan and he sent me a nice little sketch on one of them... wonder where the hell I have that thing?

Tumbleweeds, Pogo, Calvin & Hobbes, Far Side go away... yet Garfield refuses to die.

11. When I was very young,
(early 50s) I loved "Henry" and "The Little King" because there was no dialogue, just pictures, and I didn't have to get my sister to help me read them.

12. I'm one of the sick fucks that read Mark Trail and Gil Thorp regularly
I can't explain why; I've been reading both since I was about 8 and it's almost second nature now. Even Mrs. E is baffled :)

Yeah, I know Al Capp was a rightwing asshole. Go ahead and revoke my soul if you can.

Also Calvin and Hobbes. See, I'm not all bad.

23. I heard Lynn Johnson was retiring "For Better or For Worse" soon
:cry:

I love that strip - I've grown up with the Patterson kids. There was a blog that mentioned she's going to revamp the strip to a weekly that just focuses on Michael's family and incorporating flashbacks to earlier strips. And the family won't age anymore

Hell might as well read Family Circle
