what's your favourite cartoon strip? (1 Viewer)

I think the Farside cartoons are the best. It takes a special kind of person with a warped sense of humour...oops... maybe I shouldn't have said that: people might get ideas about me.

American: Garfield takes the cake.

Japanese: Azumanga Daioh, a weekly 3-panel manga series published in a male-themed magazine. Funniest series ever.

FARSIDE!! is the best may I say. They are never really repettitive and there are tons of them.

If your local paper doesn't carry "Frazz", you owe it to yourself to check out the strip. You can read it (and many more) at comics.com.

Frazz is definitely one of the most literate comic strips I've ever seen. It's smart, genuinely funny, and makes references to real literature.

Another reason I like it is that there are a bunch of people (myself included) who believe that Bill Watterson is actually doing Frazz under a pseudonym. If you Google "Frazz Watterson Conspiracy" or "Calvin Hobbes Frazz" or something like that, you should find a site or two with the theories on it.

My two favorites are Zits and Calvin and Hobbes.... especially Calvin and Hobbes.

As for Japanese manga.... oh don't even get me started. But my absolutefavorites are Kodocha and Cardcaptor Sakura (NOT THE ANIME, JUST THE MANGA)

Farside. Those who like Farside should look at the picture book, There's A Hair In My Dirt. Same guy, but I think the picture book's a bit difficult to find (my brother spent three years searching).

Just been introduced to Calvin and Hobbes. A friend sent me a book of this comic, it's not so bad (what I've read).
