Comic strips

I have always been drawn to the funny pages -- the daily comic strips in the newspaper. As a kid, I would eat my cereal as I read the comics (usually getting a good number of newspaper ink smudges on the counter top, much to my Dad's displeasure). Now, I read my comics, still over a bowl of cereal, but in front of the computer instead. I've been able to discover rare gems like Dog Eat Doug and A Mission Deep and my latest find, the darkly twisted and equally sweet Lio. Without the internet, these would probably have been lost in the rough. (Of course, you can't miss my old favorites, Non Sequitur, Overboad and FoxTrot.) Hmm... I suddenly have an urge for some Froot Loops.
