Sorry, got your shoes confused with your wife's. Hers must be worn down from years of well-placed kicks.

My younger brother and I could hardly wait for the Sunday Atlanta
Journal each week, `cause inside was the "Funny Papers". We would divvy
them up and savor our favorite comic strips.

There was Li'l Abner, Pogo, Alley Oop, Dagwood and Blondie, Joe Palooka
(and that little WWII orphan... Dondi?), Nancy (and Sluggo), and many
others. Those are right off the top of my head, but that was in the
days of some really great comics!

EDIT: How could I forget B.C. and that anteater? "ZOT !!!"

Can you think of others?

Brew I always loved For Better or For Worse, which is still around I beleive. When I was a kid my aunt used to send us comics from the UK, and they were so different from what we got here-- one of my faves was Desperate Dan. He's really larger than life that guy!

Hey thanks Brew! Come to think of it, I think the author is Canadian. I could always relate to her charachters, and it is unfortunate that that her creativity is slowed due to advancing MS.

How about Dick Tracy, Prince Valiant, Brenda Starr and Mary Worth? Little Orphan Annie too. Some of these may still be around, but I don't get the 'funnies' anymore, so I am not sure.

Yep, Dick Tracy was one of my faves, at least until Moon Maiden
appeared. That took the series off in a new direction. I liked Little
Orphan Annie, but it always made me feel sad. What was her dog's
name... Sandy?

Yup, Sandy and Daddy Warbucks were there, and don't forget Asp! What about the Katzenjammer Kids? Weren't they originally the Captain and something?

Yes! The Katzenjammer Kids... I looked it up in Wikipedia and they say it first titled Hans und Fritz and then The Captain and the Kids. I even had their comic books.

We also still have For Better or For Worse, but they are reruns from the early days. I guess Pam explained why.
I liked Tailspin Tommy, Mickey Finn, Barney Google, Moon Mullins, Maggie & Jiggs, Out Our Way, Steve Canyon, Calvin & Hobbes and so many others mentioned here. Today my favorites are Crankshaft, Hagar, The Lockhorns and Beetle Bailey. Don't like Garfield because I don't like the guy in Muncie who does it.

I have never been much of a funnies fan.

Though I DO love Calvin & Hobbes. I just LOVE that kid!! That strip was brilliant.

There's another brilliant comic strip I like called Agnes.

http://www.gocomics.com/agnes/2008/12/17/

Actually I would love to see what would result if you put Agnes and Calvin in a room together. affraid

Calvin & Hobbes was written by a fellow who lived a few miles away in Hudson, Ohio. In a very unusual move, he gave it up to pursue other interests. My favorite of all was the day Clvin emitted a terrific belch at the breakfast table. His horrified mother said, "Calvin! What do you say?"
Calvin replied, "Barge comin' through!"
"That's two strikes," said his mother.

My opinion, Calvin and Hobbes was the greatest comic strip ever.

Another in the league: Mafalda, but it was only in Argentina in the sixties.

Currently in the top crust: Brewster Rockitt

That Calvin would be:



And this, though not typical, is the greatest strip he ever produced.

True story reported in the news this week.

Three kids in Hanover, Germany, decided on marriage. Their ages: 5,6, &7.
The boy and girl wanted to get married and decided on Africa because it
was warm there. The other girl would go along as a witness. They packed their bags and left home. After a search, the police found them sitting in the Train station.

Maltada does have a unique power of persuasion. She may have made a better running mate for president.
