    My favorite was Bloom County (by Berkeley Breathed) is no longer around, but I still consider it to be the best ever!

    Old Garfields were really good - but not in the last 15 years or so! Also love the Far Side.

    Calvin and Hobbes, hands down. I still read them every day, years after they stopped being new.

    Growing up, I loved reading Luanne, although I believe I was already in middleschool when the comic debuted.

    Calvin and Hobbes, is by far the best comic ever made.

    But if you want currently running, I have a few favorites.

    Dilbert
    Boondocks
    Get Fuzzy
    and call me a dork but I always enjoy For Better or For Worse
    and Arlo and Janis

    When I was little I always enjoyed reading The Phantom, but not many papers carry that anymore.

    Did I answer too much?

    My favorite is Garfield. I still clip them out and keep them all in a folder.

    Get Fuzzy is my favorite current strip. Dilbert is great too. My boyfriend works for that pointy-haired guy, I swear.

    Bloom County. A great satirical, thinking-person's strip. ...And, occasionally, downright hilarious!
