Long-time reader but new to this forum; I hope the subject is still alive. My favorites:
1. The Far Side
2. Calvin and Hobbes
Honorable mention: Funky Winkerbean, which was a great favorite of mine back when the gang was young, but when they got old ... hoo boy.
1. Errant Story
-- Sarine Elle is my favorite character from any
recent fictional form, and I really hope this universe comes back to life in 2015
2. Girl Genius
3. The Meek
HM: Sinfest, which I enjoyed greatly until Tat got bit by the radfem bug ... and after that, not so much.
It probably says something about me that most of these are either retired, on hiatus, or gone badly downhill. What a drag it is gettin' old...
