The Top Ten

1
Calvin and Hobbes
Calvin and Hobbes is a comic that makes us turn back at our lives and say 'wow that's what I did when I was little' it makes us laugh and is very memorable. Long live Calvin and Hobbes
No matter what people say, the innocence and comedy Calvin and Hobbes offer is far better than any other strip.
clever and witty at some times this comic strip can also be very deep and meaningful.

2Garfield
Garfield will always be my favorite comic strip because it is consistently hilarious without ever making reference to the economy or any political group that no one wants to hear about when looking for a laugh.
Garfield is one of the most recognizable comic strip animals of all time.
Garfield and Clavin and Hobbes are at the top two spots... Yes, all is as it should be. I can't decide between them, but voted Garfield to make them closer.
[newest]
Garfield was s cute in his movie design.

3Peanuts
Peanuts reflected political satire in the mid- fifties, had a Family Circus-like theme in its earliest years, was truly believable and iconic in the late 50's and throughout the 60's and the early 70's (not to mention many sledding disaster strips that would later be reworked into Calvin and Hobbes), and was truly there just to brighten your face through the rest of the strip's run. In all assets, it had weirdness like the far side, political satire like Pogo and Doonesbury, spontaneity and meaning like Calvin and Hobbes, and has influenced every comic strip there is, in some way.
Charles Schulz provided such a wonderful insight into the innocence of his characters, this comic strip spawned the classic "A Charlie Brown Christmas", which won both an Emmy and a Peabody, and I personally loved that Schulz honored our veterans. Truly a class act, never to be matched.
Peanuts has so much character and never fails to brighten everyone's day.
[Newest]My favorite is Calvin and Hobbes, but Peanuts is #2 for me. Needs to be above Garfield, which is literally recycled art and jokes every single day!

4FoxTrot
this is my alltime favorite but I also like the peanuts and family circus

C-BEAR

Definitely the best comic I have ever read... Outrageously funny and clever!

Harrythagreat

This strip has been my favorite for years and years. Jason is my hero. It's the only reason I buy the Boston Globe.

5Pearls Before Swine
Rat is my favorite. I like this one I read a while ago... About Stevie Sheep. He wrote a children's book...
"Stevie Sheep was tired of his daily sheep life... " {in short} "He rebelled against the sheep, and went to live in the woods. Instead of sheep noises, he made the opposite. Which, coincidentally, sounded like a vulnerable dying sheep. " And then you see a picture of a wolf licking his lips: "Lesson: don't make noises like a dying sheep in the woods at night, kids. "
Stephen Pastis is a genius! Rat, Pig, the Crocs (with cool accents) are all funny! Best comic ever!

Jammer196

Its admittedly poorly drawn, but is the only comic in my newspaper that I still read every day, with the lone exceptions of dilbert and jump start. Stephan pastis knows funny
[Newest]I would vote for the far side or c and h but they don't need any more votes

6Zits
I love so many comics in this list, and the top 5 is quite good (except for Pearls before Swine)but I had to vote for Zits. The author and drawer really use the every-day situations, and family happenings. It deals with teenager-parent problems, and it always ends with a bit of laughter. And sometimes, maybe it isn't funny, but you can feel the depth inside this comic.
A comic strip that applies to everyday life, and isn't cheesy, like 'Garfield' or 'Family Circus'.
One of the few comic strips that's still funny.

7The Far Side
Looking for the meaning of irony. Read Far side!
We are living in a World full of constant annoyances and irritations, the farside manages to transform our constant troubles into pure heaven, and it does this because it is genius.
Gary Larson Extends the meaning of Te ar Side 2 the next level!

I used to use these in my Speech Pathologist job + they are so funny 2!

8Big Nate
Big Nate is an American comic strip written and illustrated by Lincoln Peirce. The strip is about a boy named Nate Wright, a rebellious and energetic sixth-grader, and his classmates and teachers. Nate is portrayed as a boy with little interest in studies or conforming to standards. Because of this, he often ends up in detention. Some of the staff at the school include Mrs. Godfrey (Nate's social studies teacher and chief faculty nemesis), art teacher Mr. Rosa, Principal Nichols, Mrs. Shipulski, and Mrs. Czerwicki. Nate's best friends include Francis Pope and Teddy Ortiz. In recent strips they formed a garage band named Enslave the Mollusk, which appears to have broken up.
Oh come on the books are hilarious and more funnier than The Wimpy Kid. All Greg does is repeating his life on how can he impress a girl or something but Nate does the same! But he does talk and do something new in every story. All Greg talks about is his brothers his friends and all of that no offense I really love The Diary Of A Wimpy Kid but at least make up something NEW!

JaysTop10List

It probably has to be number 1 Number 1! NUMBER one! The only thing just as good is peanuts! Who would waste time neglecting efforts of Teddy Francis, Artur, and the number 1, nate! NATE!
[Newest]Big Nate sucks ass!

9Archie
Heck no! All the characters always think about getting crabby which is their true personality, Archie is spoiled, nobody would change their names completely, it wouldn't stop making Sonic & Mega Man comics, it wouldn't make Super Monkey Ball comics, & I hate them because they met Glee instead of Beavis & Butthead! So this should be on the very bottom of this damn list! Calvin & Hobbes should be ranked top 1! I'll bet Nintendo hates Archie Comics too, which is why there's no Archie Mario comic spin-offs, Archie Metroid comic spin-offs, Archie Kirby comic spin-offs & Archie F-Zero comic spin-offs & more! Then we wouldn't have minded the wack Archie Comics.
Archie Comics sucks ass. The only good series of Archie Comics is Super Duck.
I have read every single archie probly ever made they are the very best classic timeless! and awesome and this should be number 1!

10Get Fuzzy
hard to chose,but this is my favorite at the moment

MadTheSwine


The Contenders

11Cul De Sac

12Dilbert
This is the one comic strips that inspired office working class comedy of today! Without this comic strips, I seriously doubt that shows and movies that dealt with office situation comedy such as The Office and Office Space would ever the same as we all know it. Don't let this comic strips make you think that it's only appealing to office workers, instead it's for everybody who's able to get jokes, knows computers computers, and relate to work. To me, there was never a single day where Scott Adams failed to make me laugh ^^ that's why Dilbert has still is going over two decades since it begun.
The only reason this comic is not number one is that it's a smart comic; many people do not understand it.

With its great characters and funny strips, Dilbert is the best.
Worlds most best comic period. Extremely funny, smart humor, and they are all real things that could happen. Except, of course, and dog can't work. that was kind've fake.

13Dennis The Menace
Pogo, Lil Abner, the Far Side, Bloom County and because...and if you disagree with me, you are dead from the neck up.

14Fred Basset

15Cyanide & Happiness

16The Adventures of Tintin
I love it so many cases to solve
These comics are the best and full of adventure and thrills
The Adventures of Tintin is a wonderful comic book series by Herge. Sadly, he died before completing the last book. This is a series about a teenager called Tintin, his dog Snowy and his friend Captain Haddock. Tintin is a journalist but he is rarely seen submitting a story. Instead, he solves crime and is more of a detective than a journalist. Herge has combined suspense, drama and humor to make this wonderful series. I would recommend it for children aged 9+.

17Non Sequitur
The best comic strip I've ever had the pleasure to come across!

18The Phantom
The ultimate comic strip. IF you're looking for adventure, combined with seriousness and a lot of witty humor, read the phantom! Most stories are a lot better than any action movie.
This is the best comic strip I have ever read. I Specially like the realistic nature of the comics. also the fantastic places that 21 generation of phantom and the adventure is simply fantastic
The best comic strip ever. Far more realistic than garfield and foxtrot and such. Always a good read. This should be at the top of the list.

19B.C.
As good as the Clam got Hands

20Beetle Bailey

21Bloom County
This is truly the best there is. Clever humor, unforgettable characters, and most of all, downright hilarious. Easily my favorite comic strip of all time.
Has always been my favorite. Gotta love Opus, Bill the Cat, Steve Dallas, Milo, and Binkley.
Greatest comic strip ever. Loved the characters and storylines. Insanely post-modern fun.

22Pogo
Walt Kelly's work laid the foundation for Calvin & Hobbes. An oldie but a goodie.

23Rip Kirby
Pisses on everything else on this list except for Calvin ^^ Hobbes and Peanuts

24The Boondocks
The Boondocks is definitely the funniest comic strip ever. Which other strp tales as many jibes at popular society than this?

25Asterix
I like how it reflects on roman history in a funny sort of way

26Ziggy
Ziggy is so uderrated on this list! Seriously, the graphics rock & this is Kieran Stark & Ivan Lau's top 2 most favorite comic book franchise with top 1 being the Calvin & Hobbes franchise. I agree with them, too.

27Overboard

28Blondie
I'm 75 always have liked Blondie series but I think of it more as Dagwood series and not Blondie... Netflix has several films from the 40s statting Arthur Lake as Dagwood... Will make your day better...

29Hagar the Horrible

30Brewster Rockit: Space Guy!
There is NEVER a bad Brewster comic.

anonymous

He cracks me up every time!

31Jim's Journal
Anti-humor at it's finest.

32Pickles

33The Wizard of Od

34Doonesbury

35Mutts
Mutts comics are so awesome to read and enjoy I really think that mutts sould be on top and finally I think it's better than these comic strips because mutts is going to be turned into a full length feature movie by blue sky studios

36Gunston Street
Awesome! It's definitely for the military type, but I still enjoy it!
If you have ever served in the service, this is the best!

37Close to Home

38Life In Hell
That's what I'm talking about! It will b put in my franchise.

39Spy vs. Spy

40For Better or For Worse

41Footrot Flats

42Baby Blues
Ever read it? If you have not, you don't read the newspaper. I don't think it's better than Calvin and Hobbes, or the far side, or dilbert, or Garfield, but it's still one of the best comics ever.

43The Family Circus

44F Minus

45Heart of the City

46Alan Ford

47Krazy Kat

48Luann

49Andy Capp

50Barnaby

51Gordo — A Humorous View From a Mexican - Culture Perspective
Why does cat fur always fall up? What is "La Cometa Halley"?

52He-Man & the Masters of the Universe
Gee, this could be at least top 5, not just top 52.

If only He-Man came back in 3-D.

P.S. Semen & the Masters of the Universe

53Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

54Sabrina, the Teenage Witch
I hate these comics so much! They are still so overrated! Also, I don't see why there's no Pac-Man Archie Comics yet.

55Super Duck

56Wilbur

57Josie & the Supercats

58Mega Man
I prefer Mario & Mega Man: World Collision over Sonic & Mega Man: Worlds Collide.

59Club Nintendo
Princess Peach is just a bald woman who has a very hard time taking her fake hair (which is a wig) off. Also, Princess Daisy deserved to be in mre stuff than Princess Peach.

60Sonic & Mega Man: Worlds Collide

61Sonic the Hedgehog

62Nintendo Comics System

63Super Mario Adventures
Princess Peach was more aggressive than feisty in this comic series, & was rude. Also, I think she has a small penis (rather than a vagina) & a slightly huge bust in every Mario Sports game which proves that Princess Peach takes steroids. Also, her long, flowy & cartoonishly yellow hairstyle is just a wig. I think Princess Peach just has a brown buzz-cut hairstyle inside her so-called blond hair.
Princess Peach was so aggressive, short-tempered & bossy in this comic! Both Nintendo & Archie Comics made Princess Peach look like a short-tempered psycho.

64Charlie Brown
