    Oh kind of spooky here, Foxtrot, Jump Start and Pickles graces the bottom section of the page on the Honolulu Advertiser, while Garfield is also on the bottom of the comics page on the Honolulu Star Bulletin. Don't have Overboard here.

    Dilbert is on the 2nd page of the Business Section of the Star Bulletin (on the top), while Sally Forth is on the top half of the comics section on the Star Bulletin.

    I think Peanuts is on the bottom half of the Star Bulletin.

    Argh !!! The SJ Merc is running Zits in place of Foxtrot. Yeah, it started in the New Year's issue, but I didn't notice it. Remember, I read the comics when I get stymied by the puzzle, sudoku or Jumble . . . as a diversion.

    The Sunday Star Bulletin runs a strip called Tundra. The 5/24/09 issue had a panel with the caption that said "The danger of having eyes bigger than your stomach". The strip had a bird on top of a diving whale while the bird is thinking "Lift, Lift".

    I used to read or look at the pictures of Heavy Metal.

    I have a comics group in my favorites that I open every morning. I read:

    Foxtrot (bummed that it's only a weekly strip now)
    Pearls Before Swine
    Baby Blues
    Get Fuzzy
    In The Bleachers
    The Argyle Sweater (in place of my old Far Side fix)
    Sherman's Lagoon

    Dilbert, of course, as well as Scott Adams' blog:

    Free Doonesbury and the history behind the strip:
    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19798680/?cat=db

    All of Calvin & Hobbes:
    http://www.marcellosendos.ch/comics/ch/index.html

    with searchable keywords but ads and other website bloat:
    http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/2009/01/17/

    Reruns of Liberty Meadows:
    http://comics.com/liberty_meadows/

    xkcd, even if I have to spend an hour looking up the arcane references & inside jokes:
    http://xkcd.com/587/#

    and

    Broadside (a shipmate's Navy humor):
    http://www.militarytimes.com/blogs/b...side-cartoons/

    I also pay $15/year to read "Zits" and "Sally Forth". Maybe that'll change as our teen gets launched out of the nest.

    Partial to this whacky blog.

    Somebody mentioned "Overboard". That's a good one.

    Talking Re: What comics (strips) do you like to read?

    I only get Sunday comics. Too busy to read papers during the week.

    My #1 All-time favorite was Calvin & Hobbes. I have the hard-cover collection.

    I live for Prince Valiant, even though it's original author is long gone. When the Advertiser dropped it I told the Advertiser I'd drop them unless they brought it back. Evidently I was not the only one, since it came back!

    Doonsbury, for witty political commentary. I read everything else, but most doesn't stick. Slapstick humor is boring.

    As more newspapers fold, even more comic strips will too. There eventually won't be enough to syndicate to.

    Reading 'em online is fine for now - but the lack of a steady revenue stream will lead exactly to what Burl is saying.

    Some of the topics can be of an adult nature, but never filthy. You can find more here:

    that one is funny. I found out about it a few weeks ago while in Portland, Oregon, it was in the Portland Mercury or the Willamette Week, and had to find out more about it.

    How 'bout the ones in Honolulu Weekly? "This Modern Life" and "Troubletown" are usually so deadly accurate. Look forward to them every week.
