About This Blog
I grew up during the 1980’s – a golden age of newspaper comics when readers enjoyed new installments of Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, and Bloom County on a daily basis. And while those strips have gone gently into that good night, the comics page remains a vibrant place with a large number of good strips to enjoy.
The goal of this blog is to find one worthwhile, interesting strip per day and post it for general enjoyment – with a few observations from me. Hopefully it can be a place for casual comics fans to enjoy good strips without having to wade through Dick Tracy and Mary Worth.
As a side note, these strips are taken from the comics pages of the “Chicago Tribune” and the “Chicago Sun-Times,” with a handful of Comics.com strips thrown in for good measure. For a complete list of strips I read on a daily basis, check out “My Daily Reading Material” in the sidebar.
