somemoron: 10 - Krazy KatNever read it, only through reputation9 - Libert MeadowsNever heard of it8 - GarfieldUsed to be quite good until he hit upon the the final design for Garfield.7 - Li'l AbnerUgh.6 - OpusOH HELL NO. Bloom County, definitely. And Outland... wtf man. Coke much? It was terrible.5 - DoonesburyDon't much care for the political aspect of it (I used to read the comics to escape all that shiat), but there were/are some damn funny elements. I still laugh whenever I think of that woman channeling a goddess or cavewoman or whatever that was.4 - PeanutsGot a soft spot for older strips when Snoopy had a thinner nose. Vulture still makes me laugh. Should be #3 though.3 - PogoMy Dad used to have a collection of the old Pogo books. God, they were works of art. Topically, they are dated, but still good reads. Never got to read it as a daily. The political bent here was 'funny ha-ha' not 'funny fark you'. Good stuff. Should be #4 though, Peanuts was huge.2- The Far SideDamn right.1 - Calvin and HobbesAlso, damn right.
Nadie_AZ: MaudlinMutantMollusk: UberDave:I really don't get the listing of Garfield. I never found him funny.
Dave and the Mission: The "Garfield Alone" strip, since the article links to a black and white page you have to hunt through.[nowiknow.com image 598x1040]
Omahawg: for better or worse had it's moments
Dave and the Mission: Garfield minus Garfield and the Garfield Randomizer breathe life into what was never an actually funny comic.http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/http://garfieldrandomizer.tumblr.com//full disclosure : I always read Garfield first when I got the paper at breakfast.//can't honestly say they were funny, but I liked them.
Arachnophobe: TelemonianAjax: Lorelle: Little Nemo in Slumberland should be #1. It influenced many comic strips, including Calvin and Hobbes.Never heard of Liberty Meadows.Dick Tracy should also be on that list.Frank Cho (Liberty Meadows) has a certain style for drawing women. And it is good .(Damn mobile, I dont feeling like html tonight.) This Brandy, one of the main characters from LM:http://www.libertymeadows.com/covers/Cover_GirlS.jpgI got your back.Frank Cho is a hell of an artist, and I'm a fan of his work and of Liberty Meadows. It's a fun, silly strip. However, I've never seen it in a newspaper, only in collected editions from Dark Horse.
UberDave: BizarreMan: I would have gone for Bloom County over Opus. Maybe because Opus and Outland never ran anywhere I could read them on a daily basis. But face it, without Bloom County there would never have been any spin offs.Opus and Outland were great but Bloom County was orders of magnitude better. Should have been on the list...[s2.postimg.org image 825x596]
Boris S. Wort: Replace 'em with...Herman
Intrepid00: Gumpus: Cannot argue with 1 and 2, though I would have reversed the order.Easily. Far Side was appreciated by all ages while Hobbes tended to be more younger.
jmsvrsn: I guess Trots and Bonnie is not considered syndicated because it only appeared in the National Lampoon.[comicscomicsmag.com image 850x601]

noitsnot: When I was a kid, I was partial to "Little Annie Fannie" when I could get ahold of it.
dwelling: If only webcomics were included, we could certainly replace a few of the stragglers on that list.[pbfcomics.com image 850x283]
JerseyTim: Gumpus: Cannot argue with 1 and 2, though I would have reversed the order.This.
Bloom County is my all time favorite. For the old timey strips Thimble Theatre is hard to beat.
