What are the best comic strips, in your opinion? The Worst comic strips?
BCDE is the worst by far.
Off the top of my head....
Calvin & Hobbes
Pearls Before Swine
Hark A Vagrant
The Far Side
And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
^I've never heard of Fireflower, Hark A Vagrant, or Bloom County, but the rest of your best is exactly what I'd have said. If we're counting webcomics, (and I guess we are since XKCD is there?) then I'll add Awkward Zombie and Let's Speak English!
The Family Circus
There are a lot of other strips (Mark Trail, Cathy, whatever that "Love is" one is called) that I actively dislike, but not they're not on the seemingly deliberately unfunny level of those three.
I haven't read newspaper comics in ages, apart from the (amazing) Calvin & Hobbes collection I own. I remember liking FoxTrot, Pearls Before Swine, and Get Fuzzy. I know there were comics I hated, but I can't remember any.
Yeah well you're just a BIG JERK.
Well, there aren't really any newspaper comics I like no more. 'Dilbert' is pretty good. Also 'Calvin and Hobbes', 'Peanuts' and 'The Far Side'.
Does 'Mad' count? I really like the old 'Mad', like, from the sixties. Also the version of 'Mad' that existed when I was a kid. Nowadays 'Mad' is kind of garbage. Writing really crapped out when I was in high school (the Fundalini pages are sh*t content for toddlers) (not to mention all the dang ads-------------like thirty pages of ads for DC Entertainment in every issue. Like that's what I'm reading 'Mad' for, right).
Webcomics? 'Daisy Owl' is great. 'Oglaf', too. (EDIT: Forgot 'Creased Comics', 'Girl Genius' and 'Chimneyspeak'.)
It's been a while since I've read a newspaper. At my university, they gave out free copies of the local newspaper daily, so I actually read a lot of newspaper strips and articles. Also discovered my love of word jumbles that way.
Anyway, I remember always hating For Better or For Worse, The Argyle Sweater, B.C., Hi and Lois, and Baby Blues. Basically anything that was one panel or generally about how being a parent sucks. I think it also goes without saying that Family Circus is a plague that needs to be driven from the Earth.
I generally liked the more juvenile and "funny" strips like Beetle Bailey, Wizard of Id, Zits, and Foxtrot. There was one about a dog that was sort of square shaped? Can't remember the name of it, but I liked it.
family circus is total garbage
I loved the Perry Bible Fellowship and Gunshow Comic
