I used to love the comics page, but they seldom make me laugh any more. Opus
is funny. Non Sequiter
is funny sometimes. Ballard Street
is so wierd most of the time that I laugh at it. Doonesbury
is funny every once in a while (I'm not hip to some of the greybeard, parent with grown up kids humor Trudeau has been employing lately). Dilbert
is good for a laugh 50% of the time. Boondocks
ROCKS. Get Fuzzy
can be cool sometimes. I can relate to The Norm
is real hit & miss.
Comics I HATE and never read: Peanuts
(Schulz is dead, let the strip RIP), Love Is.
..(I think she's dead, too. What's up with dead strip artists and immortality?), Family Circus
(too much preachy crap), Snuffy Smith
(Jim Davis has lost it completely), Curtis
(can't relate), Funky Winkerbean
(it's like a sitcom that tries to be serious. Cancer doesn't belong in the funny pages), Crankshaft
(ditto for Alzheimers), Luann
(teenage girl comes of age), any of the soap opera comic strips like Mary Worth
, Judge Parker
, et al (what is the point of this?!?!), The Wizard of Id
( I've never laughed at it), Hagar the Horrible
(ditto), Beatle Bailey
(3rd no laugh strip in a row).
I am indifferent to any strips I didn't mention. If I blasted your favorite comic strip, my apologies. This thread is timely for me because I was just complaining to a friend of mine how badly the comics pages suck these days.
