I realize different papers have different comic strips in different countries, although I know several have gone into syndication to many other countries. My favorite comic strip from the paper has always been Garfield. I liked reading the Peanuts and Cathy strip too. How about you guys? Which comic strip was/is your favorite? (comic strip, not book)

My favorite comics are beetle bailey and snuffy smith. I have read those since I was a small child and still love them just as much.

Snuffy Smith is a hillbilly cartoon that has been around for as long as I can remember. I guess I like it because I grew up with it.

I have always loved Get Fuzzy. Then I was turned of when I found in one of their comics the cat saying he was more popular than God. That was a turn off. I really do enjoy Pearls Before Swine, The Lockhorns, Blondie, Close To Home...and the other ones that are similar to Close To Home.

Comic strips are a lost art. It's hard to be funny for so long! : )

hi AmbiePam my favorites are an even toss up beteen Garfield my all time favorite and Get Fuzzy, as I just love the dog so much, he sort of makes the whole comic. I have been a Garfield fan for ages even to having a door mat with Garfield on it, and a Garfield beanie baby. also love Get Fuzzy too.

You're the second person to mention Get Fuzzy, but I don't think I've ever seen that one.

I read more comic books than comic strips. But when I flip open the newspaper, I usually flip directly to the comics page first. My favorites were/are: Calvin and Hobbes, Archies, and Dilbert. I still collect Archie comics today and have the complete Calvin and Hobbes collection.

Garfield, same as you. My Grandad always used to save me all his comic strips out of his papers and send them to me once a month or so because he was my favourite!

I would have to say that my favorite comic strip would have to be Charlie Brown. I used to love to watch the cartoon on television also when I was younger. I also loved the smurfs too. I used to like to read Andy Capp also in the paper.

I'd have a number I love, like Garfield, Dennis the Menace, Donald and Friends. But my favourite is Snoopy from the Peanuts characters.

My all time favourite was Tumbleweeds. But apparently it was cancelled years ago due to political incorrectness. Next favourite is Hagar the Horrible and Family Circle.

hi ambiepam! my favorite comic strips would be a few of our local comic strips like Kiko Machine which features the difficulties and issues in a college life, Life in Progress which shows the wacky lives of some wacky friends, Pugad Baboy which is the name of a neighborhood and features a family of very fat people with a talking dog names Polgas, and Beerkada which is also about some crazy people. i also like Garfield, Calvin and Hobbes, Ben, Marvin, and many others.

Whenever I read the comics I start at the top and work my way down the page. In the Sunday comics Peanuts was always first and then Garfield. Those two were my favorites, so I was glad that they were the first ones I got to when reading the comics.

My faves are Garfield and Peanuts. I've loved them since I was very young, infact, my mum had a friend who was Snoopy obsessed!!!!!!! No kidding either, her house was decorated all Snoopy style, even her telephone and door mat.

Well I took a millisecond to answer this!... CALVIN AND HOBBES! You only have to read it to see why 5 year old kids run away from school teachers and food is scattered all over the table. It certainly opened my eyes to the world of the little people, who can't see above the table :-)

I like the newer cartoons like Foxtrot and The Boondocks. Both are interesting graphic design and are usually the funniest strips I read. I haven't really read comics in quite some time but I still remember the ones I used to use to pass time.

My favorite comic strip has got to be Drabble. Though I do like Garfield, Peanuts, and a few others as well. However Drabble always put a smile on my face, no matter how goofy that day's strip was. I haven't gotten the paper in a few years and this is the one thing I miss. But what's the point in buying the paper just to read the comic strips?
