Agreed! That's pretty much how comics were in Britain until the 1980s. For me, it's just how comics should be.


comic strips that dont suck?!?!?!?

I'm sorry I'm too young to remember such a time when such was even a possibility.

With very few exceptions (Calvin and Hobbes, The Farside) The comic strip section has been a source of depression for a long, long time.

One comic that I always hated as a kid was Dennis the Menace. As an adult I'm really impressed by Hank Ketcham and his ghost's ability to spot blacks and pull off some really nice compositions. Other than that, the comics section here is pretty dreadful most of the time.

I have the Smithsonian collection of Comic Strips and I'm constantly amazed and inspired by the comic strip artist from the first half of the 20th century, some truly outstanding work is in there.
