Your Favorite Funnies

[SIGN][/SIGN]There have been many famous cartoon strips from Walt Kelly’s Pogo, Al Capp’s** Li’l Abner**, Shultz’s Peanuts, Chester Gould’s “Richard” Tracy, Dean Young’s Blondie and Dagwood, Garry Troudeau’s Doonesbury, Milton Caniff’s Terry and the Pirates, Bill Keane’s The Family Circus, Johnny Hart’s B.C Gary Larson’s The Far Side, and the list goes on and on back to Richard Outcault’s The Yellow Kid (1895).

Your Favorite cartoon strip?

Satire Berke Breathed’s Bloom County. Clever, witty, original satire. IMHO, there are a lot of ties for second (Doonesbury, Li’l Abner, Pogo) but none come close to Opus the Penguin and the cast of characters in Bloom County.
Single Panel: The Far Side The Best! "Nuff said.
Adventure The Phantom ("Richard" Tracy a close second)
Just Funny: ** Zits**
