FAR SIDE

PEANUTS was my young life. But FAR SIDE perfected the form and destroyed it.

Calvin and Hobbes was excellent. Gold standard for me.

Never been a big Doonesbury fan.

Best: BC (by the late, great Johnny Hart), Calvin & Hobbes, Tumbleweeds.

Worst: Zippy the Pinhead, Herman

Special Mention-Worst: DOONESBURY

Extra-Special Mention- Worst: THIS MODERN WORLD

These last two are drawn by nothing less than liberal traitors.
