Good god I loved Bloom County back in the day.

My parents had all the bound collections of Bloom County -- I grew up on that stuff! I miss the Sunday comics he was doing for a while.

I love the surrealism of Krazy Kat. Ever catch the animated shorts from the 50's? Same production company also did Snuffy Smith and Beetle Bailey as well.

Well that was brilliantly bleak. It also reminds me of work. 8^(

Here is an extremely rare appearance by adults in Peanuts, from May 16, 1954....

Pardon the Peanuts favoring here, they're just the ultimate comic strip to me, one of the things that made me want to draw and get into graphics.....these pics are from www.comics.com , where you can see the entire daily run of Peanuts from Oct 2, 1950 to the last one in 1999, and daily repeats of Classics, all the way to present day.

This other one is cool too, but it's way to big to fit on here, so I'll just give you the link for it.

No pardon necessary. I have a number of the chronological Peanuts collections, and am a lifelong fan. I consider it one of the three greatest strips of all time. (I have posted strips from the other two I consider to be the all-time greatest: Pogo and Krazy Kat and Ignatz.) I would throw Little Nemo in Slumberland into the mix, but it's too otherworldly for me to hold it alongside the other three. It seems less like a comic strip and more like dreamy, weekly art nouveau masterpieces.

I bought the first collection of Hank Ketcham's chronological Dennis the Menace, and was quite surprised to find it was often funny. Dennis is a mean, spiteful little brat, and the art is wonderful. It makes me sad that it became what it became. I picked up the first collection of Family Circus to see if it, too, would surprise me by being worthwhile, but it was as bad back then as it is now.

If anyone needs the strip's joke explained, I can do it. I warn you, though, that it still won't be funny.

I was going to eventually bring Dennis the Menace into the fold here, with the exact same description you used. Yes, the early 50's Dennis is great on both those counts....mean spirited humor and draftsmanship that captures life in Mid Century America beautifully. And yes, to see what eventually happened, his becoming a cute witticism-spouting precocious saccharine little shithead with smiling onlookers is very sad.

Family Circus has always been bland and tasteless, like a puffed rice cake, but the earlier ones at times had their moments. But nothing beats the Nietzsche, Lovecraft and other (usually pornographic) hacks of that strip.

At one point I'll bring MUTTS into the room, too.
