The only way I can see this making sense would be if the Wicked Witch of the West were a Daxamite…

MORRIS KEESAN: I’m not sure whether I was really laughing out loud at the comic
itself, or whether I was just enjoying the homage to Calvin & Hobbs.

Oregon Trail

Cidu Bill on Jan 6th 2016

Yes, this cartoon is referencing both the current stand-off and what Time Magazine calls “the game that traumatized countless children of the ’80s and ’90s”: but how does it tie those two things together?

By the way, this.

The Essential 10

Cidu Bill on Dec 31st 2015

In Autumn of 2015, I asked you to send me your lists of specific comics that are so “essential,” we can assume that most fans of the genre will be familiar with most if not all of them.

Over 60 of you responded, sending me 67 different comics, well over 200 comics in all, most of which got multiple votes. Before I list the top 10 (actually 16 because of a 9-way tie, this is the Close But No Segar list:

Doonebury: “Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!” (which was on my personal list)

Peanuts: “Hold My Hand, Chuck”

Bloom County: “Death Star”

B.C.: “Clams Got Legs!”

James Thurber: “It’s a naïve domestic Burgundy without any breeding, but I think you’ll be amused by its presumption”

Peanuts: “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night” (the original appearance)

And for the statistics-obsessed: Far Side was cited most often, 11 times; James Thurber 8; Calvin and Hobbes 6; The New Yorker (not including James Thurber and Charles Addams) 6; and Charles Addams 5.

And now the winners:

In a 9-way tie for 7th place (top to bottom, Gary Larson’s Far Side, Carl Rose in the New Yorker, James Thurber, Larson again, Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes, BobMankoff in the New Yorker, that Larson guy a couple more times, and Saul Steinberg in the New Yorker):

And now coming in at #6, from James Thurber:

#4, Charles Schulz:

#3, Walt Kelly:

#2, Peter Steiner:

And finally from Bill Watterson, published 20 years ago today, voted #1 by a wide margin, and probably the greatest comic strip finale ever:

You guessed it… more comics that I’m not sure whether they made any of us laugh out loud in 2015 yet. Hey, at least I haven’t been accidentally running repeats on Sundays. That should count for something.
