My favorite comics

I love to read the daily funnies when I can. I have a lot of comic strips that I follow all the time, and I’m going to share some.

Here’s my list of comic strips that I love to follow (usually in the Houston Chronicle, or their website) in no particular order:

  • Close to Home – Funny variety-ranging square
  • Bizarro – Another funny variety-ranging square
  • Mother Goose and Grimm – Usually a funny strip of a dog and cat and their owner, a goose
  • Hagar the Horrible – Usually lightly funny
  • The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee – I like this, just a little. It’s about a boy, and there’s 90% of the times something political
  • Brewster Rockitt : Space Guy – Funny characters on a spacecraft, and clever humorous situations
  • Monty – A little humor here and there
  • Rhymes with Orange – Wide variety of funny things
  • Sherman’s Lagoon – A cast of sea creatures and they’re typical humorous lives
  • Sally Forth – A strip following the daily life of a middle-aged business woman, and her family
  • B.C. – Stone Age humor
  • Blondie – Lovable classic
  • Beetle Bailey – Military humor
  • Curtis – Awesome comic strip about a cool black boy and his antics. Very funny.
  • One Big Happy – 2 kids and their daily antics
  • Garfield – One of my faves. The fat cat is always out to get something, Jon (the owner) always does something SO geeky, and lovable Odie and Liz
  • Argyle Sweater – Another one of those funny variety-ranging squares
  • Family Circus – Losing it’s touch, but the circle usually has the kids saying something cute and funny that you expect kids to do
  • Baby Blues – Great strip about a family and their daily antics, typical common frustrations, and it’s usually hilarious
  • Peanuts – One of my faves. Surprisingly, most times I don’t find it funny, but the characters are just lovable
  • Luann – Funny teenage humor, following a girl or other members of her family and sticky situations
  • Heart of the City – This enthusiastic, Philadelphia girl who wants it where it’s all at. Very determined, and loves the glitz of fame.
  • Hi & Lois – Another American family that has it’s crazy moments
  • Baldo – Neat Hispanic family with it’s humorous moments
  • Red & Rover – Awesome American strip. A boy and his dog and their daily adventures
  • Zits – Great teenage comic strip about a boy and him being the "typical" American teen. Just plain awesome
  • Pears Before Swine – A comic strip with quirky characters and their quirky lives
  • Lio – A neat strip about a boy that loves monsters, creatures, robots, and anything evil, but with a lighter humorous tone
  • F Minus – A strip of wide variety humor
  • Crankshaft – A grumpy old guy and his normal family. There’s humorous moments
  • Funky Winkerbean – Interesting comic following the daily lives (mainly a man who lost his wife to caner, and his daughter) of Westview citizens
  • Foxtrot – A funny Sunday comic (used to be daily) about an American family with the typical geek, girl teenager, jock and their gargantuan antics
  • Dennis the Menace – Old-fashioned, but it’s a classic
  • Drabble – Neat comic about a fat guy, his nagging wife, three kids and their duck and Weiner dog
  • Gasoline Alley – Eccentric characters and their adventures
  • Heathcliff – This cat can do anything :^)
  • My Cage – An animal world starring a platypus with his dog girlfriend, a pet amoeba, and his eccentric co-workers. Young-adult oriented
  • Rex Morgan – Awesome adventures of a crime-fighting guy
  • Phantom – Adventures of a superhero and his wife
  • The Amazing Spider-Man – The superhero and his adventures
  • Arctic Circle – A funny cast of animal characters that live in Antarctica and their antics. Notable green theme.

That’s a lot of comics, eh? Most of them I read whenever I can, while some I might skip sometimes. Others are Sunday-only for me. I’m usually more interested in the teen/child/young-adult oriented comics. They’re very humorous, and following their adventures can be fun.

I usually browse through the Houston Chronicle’s comic section for it’s wide variety of comics. They have a ton! Archives too and in color. I’m surprised that the internet biggies like Yahoo!, MSN, and AOL don’t have as much variety to choose from. Oh, well.

Comics are awesome!
