    Ok. So I was reading in the "Guest user" thread and somehow for a short time it got turned into the "best comics" thread. Which leads me to this thread - what was your favorite comic of all time? Please give a reason too.

    I'll start with Bloom County. I still think Berkely Breathed is one of the funniest writers of all time. The story he wrote about his first painting in high school - he painted an astronaut in space whose head was exploding - actually a really good painting. He titled it "Gesundheit." His art teacher told him it was terrible, and that he was going to be rich.

    Ok. Part of my reason for this thread is that I'm at work, it's now 20:52 and we haven't had a darn thing all day.

    Sorry Platty - I think that was my fault.. someone remarked on my avatar...

    Anyway... its got to be Calvin & Hobbes for me... one of the greatest strips to ever grace a newspaper. It is just hilarious the way you see everything from Calvins point of view... his daydreams, his conversations with his stuffed tiger... I have quite a few C&H books too... nothing compares to the genius of 'Revenge Of The Baby-Sat' or 'Something Under The Bed Is Drooling'.

    Gotta love Opus...but I have to say, it hasn't been the same since they started re-printing them.
    As for me, I gotta go with Gonzo's list...especially The Far Side
    The comments made by me are my opinions only, not of the Fire and EMS services I am affiliated with.

    I have lost my mind..has anyone seen it? it's not worth much..but it's mine

    But on Sunday, which is the only day around here that it's in the paper is Opus. It is timeless.

    Calvin and Hobbes is definitely at the top of my list.

    Some others in the top five would probably be:

    Peanuts
    B.C.
    Dilbert
    Frank and Ernest

    Nobody call the copyright police on me.

    Waaay funny, but then again I'm a bit of a geek.

    Get Fuzzy is great as well
