Favorite currently running comic strips.


Unfortunately, a lot of our all-time favorite comic strips (Calvin and Hobbes, Far Side, Bloom County) are no longer running.

So, what are your favorite daily comic strips that are still running? I like Baby Blues.

Scary Gary and Pearls Before Swine are my favorites, if we're talking about comics you would typically find in the newspaper.

There are a lot that I follow (including Baby Blues), but I'd say my favorites are:

Dilbert
F Minus
Frazz
Monty
Pearls Before Swine
Sally Forth
Sherman's Lagoon

If you include non-daily webcomics, I'm a big fan of Girl Genius and xkcd.

I can't be arsed to read dailies anymore since I had to stop my newspaper subscription*, but I'm currently devouring Pearls Before Swine in collection form.

*No, I didn't care for the GoComics subscription service. Can't really say why; I just didn't cotton to it.

I linked to a bunch of my favorites in the July mini-rants thread. Three I didn't include were:

Sluggy Freelance
Kevin & Kell (written by the same person who does On the Fastrack)
Two Lumps

Sluggy and K&K have been running for, literally, decades.

Sluggy's ranges from every day (at the start) to 2 or 3 times a week, depending on how life and health are treating Pete Abrams.
Kevin and Kell has published a strip every day since 1995.
Two Lumps has been intermittent for a few years now since the two cats that inspired it both passed away, but they usually get out at least one strip a week.

Berke Breathed actually revived Bloom County a few years ago, though it's online only (you can see it on Facebook, and on one of the syndicate sites). And, for me, it's still a fun read.

The only still-in-the-newspaper comic strips I still enjoy is Pearls Before Swine.

There are a couple of webcomics which I read, both of which are very naughty (as well as being funny and very well-drawn), so links to them will be in spoiler boxes.

Oglaf (updates weekly, more or less):



I Roved Out in Search of Truth and Love (updates every few weeks, though with a half-dozen or more pages at a time):

For web comics, try Schlock Mercenary, which has run for 19 years without a miss, except when the author melted the servers. Even then he only missed a day or two.

Assuming we're referring to newspaper strips, the ones in the Plain Dealer I particularly enjoy are:
Frazz
Pearls before Swine
Zits
Non Sequitur
Sally Forth
The Pajama Diaries

Note that the latter two of these are more story and character driven: It takes a while to become familiar with the characters and get into them.

Others that aren't as high on my list, but still generally good:
Jump Start
Crankshaft
Pickles
Red and Rover
Flo and Friends

EDIT: Bizarro and Rhymes with Orange are inconsistent: Sometimes they're great, but sometimes they just fall flat.

Uh...Bloom County is running, with new strips, albeit not daily.

My current favorite: Lio

Also on my "favorites" list, among those running new strips:
FoxTrot
Eyebeam (yes, it still has new strips - well, panels, anyway)
Too Much Coffee Man
9 Chickweed Lane
Pearls Before Swine (bad pun strips notwithstanding)
Brewster Rockit: Space Guy!
one with an asterisk: Get Fuzzy - new strips are very few, and very far between

Bizarro is sometimes done by a guest artist, and some of those are clunkers. Today's, however, done by a guest, was pretty funny. It took me a few seconds to get it, however.

another vote for Pearls Before Swine. the ones where they work in a bad pun and the last panel is the characters threatening to hurt the author/artist usually get a chuckle out of me. Like this one.

I loved this one too.

Any love out there for Daddy Daze?

It's a quirky, charming little strip about Paul, the (amicably) divorced dad of one-year-old Angus. He shares custody with his ex. Angus' vocabulary consists of three words, "Ma", "Da" (the first two pretty self-explanatory), and "Ba". "Ba" makes up the majority of his speech. Yet somehow, Paul is able to translate Angus' "ba's" into complex sentences--and he's on the money, since, like The Doctor, he appears to speak baby.

Yes, Girl Genius is consistently excellent.

Any lovers of In Security around? The trip has been running about three years, and is erratically-written but always features magnificent art.

Add me to the people who like the puns in PBS (that's Pearls Before Swine, not a public broadcaster).

Up 'til recently, I subscribed to the local paper. Because of circumstances I don't want to go into here, I stopped reading it earlier this year. Most of the comics I used to read, I stopped reading. They just weren't worth going out of my way to read. But I still follow PBS, Non Sequitur, and Breaking Cat News on GoComics. One other that I did like was Baby Blues, so I better find it on-line (and thanks to people upthread who reminded me of it.)

In webcomics, I tried to get people interested in Sleepless Domain in a different thread, but found no takers. Shame.

Another webcomic I read is somewhat unusual: Scandinavia and the World. What's unusual is that the "characters" are stereotypes representing countries, rather than individuals1. The main characters are, of course, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, but there's representatives of many other countries and some subnational regions. Sometimes they "reenact" historical events, otherwise things seen in the news.


1 There's one other webcomic that does this, but I can't remember its name. It's about WWII, written by a Japanese. I don't read it, just heard about it.

I love Off the Mark. A recent favorite.

Luann. I'm still waiting for Gunther and Tiffany to do the nasty.

Blondie. Just because I've always read it.

Prince Valiant, though the current story line bores me shitless.

Lio. Something funny about a kid with such a interest in gory and gruesome things.

Not from the papers, but Tom Tomorrow is great political satire.

From the Washington Post (the only comics I am exposed to without any effort), my faves are:

Brewster Rockitt (consistently hilarious)
Lio (weird kid television network, ha!)
Sally Forth (cleverly surreal; I started a thread on it last year)
Pearls Before Swine (all around good)
Big Nate (I just really like the kid)
Dilbert (still funny and on point)

There are others I read, but the above are the gems.

I like most Mutts very much, but one not yet mentioned I don't think is Red and Rover. It's not always obvious but it takes place in the 60s -- a boy and his dog. It's the best replacement for Calvin I've seen though certainly not up to that level.

I mentioned Red and Rover. I've never been quite clear on whether it's actually set in the past, or if it just deals with timeless subject matter (a boy playing with his dog) that could be set at any time. It almost never makes me laugh out loud, but it almost always makes me smile.

As for Mutts, occasionally they have a joke that's funny... the first time. But after they tell the same joke again five more times over the course of the week, it gets kind of old. Or when they have a whole week of nothing but quotes from dead poets, or a whole week of "You should adopt me because I'm cute".

It's more than sometimes; the daily Bizarro is done by Wayno. Dan Piraro only does the Sunday strips.

Several people have mentioned Sally Forth. I'll agree with that one and add that Francesco Marciuliano, the author of Sally Forth, has a site called Medium Large where he will occasionally do one-off strips that are good.

Arlo and Janis, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, Retail, Candorville, The Knight Life.

Good Lord, yes. And I should add that the cat's speech impediment drove me nuts (when I was reading the strip).

This innocuous little strip gets a lot of vitriol online...but so help me, I like Fred Basset. Fight me.

I know it gets slammed for being unfunny, but I don't think it's meant to be laugh-out-loud funny...just gently whimsical, the kind that brings a smile, the kind of gentle whimsy the British are often good at. I'm both an Anglophile and a dog-lover, so it wins points with me. I like the English-country-village-ness of it. I like to imagine that this is how the pets we love would think, if they had inner lives of their own. I like the endearing facial expressions on the dogs. I like the occasional cute meta-humor. I like Fred's parents, who seem like the kind of people I'd like to know...no kids of their own except Fred, but warm and welcoming to the local children, active in their close-knit village but willing to try out new experiences. And I like Fred's pals Jock and Yorky since they're roughly the same size as my furnephews.

The closest comparison I can think of to Fred Basset is the webtoon Simon's Cat (which, as well as the webtoon, has had some books of wordless panel strips)...pet-based humor from the UK, which features some really lovely, detailed drawing of the surrounding country.

Correction: the saddest. Ten years and counting of demonstrating that Rex Morgan and Pluggers are lame. Over and over and over.

Your mileage varies, my friend. But please do guide us to better witty comics commentary; I would be delighted to find even more amusing stuff.

last time i read a newspaper comic was someone posted a luann link becuase they didnt understand it

i read the following webcomics

questionable content, something positive, dumbing of age, least i could do, how baby (and it's once a week sister motherlover) most of them were found through jeph jacques and r.k Millholland's suggestions

i read sluggy freelance until it killed 90 percent of the original characters off .. and girls with slingshots that ended once the author illustration career took off

Mutts. I love Mutts - some of the Japanese-esque artwork is beautiful. And it the sad adoption strips make some people adopt a pet, they are well worth it.

Otherwise, every single day I start with my favorites: Pluggers, Pearls Before Swine, Peanuts, Luann, Jump Start, Daddy's Home, Baby Blues, Cul de Sac, Curtis, Dennis the Menace, GET FUZZY, Momma, Mother Goose and Grimm, and Wallace. Some of these are re-runs. Some I 'hate read'. Jump Start and Curtis feature black people and are often quite clever and thought provoking. The last couple of years I've begun following, if you can call it that, Mary Worth. (the reader comments underneath the strip every day are hilarious!)

Like you say, mileage. But I never found punching down to be sporting.

I don't know of any regular comics commentary, other than someone saying "did you see today's Rhymes with Orange?". I suppose Zippy could be considered a sort of comics commentary, in comic strip form.

I liked Monty, formerly Robotman, but the Globe dropped it.
