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.
[Newest]Calvin and Hobbes will always be my favorite because it's consistently hilarious and Calvin doing nutty things and Hobbes pouncing on him

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 has been around since 1978 and now is funnier than ever. They are making books of Garfield every comic strip ever made.

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]Peanuts is the greatest awesome-est funniest saddest most artistic most famous and THE best comic strip ever!

4Pearls 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. "
I laugh every day because of this strip. What makes it unique is that Stephan Pastis puts himself into the comic, and not only that, but he makes himself a loser, also. It's hilarious. I love the Crocs and Rat the most. This is by far the funniest comic strip out there.

Grayson

Stephen Pastis is a genius! Rat, Pig, the Crocs (with cool accents) are all funny! Best comic ever!

5FoxTrot
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.
[Newest]Best comic strip since "Calvin and Hobbes". Jason is a crackup.

6The 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.
Looking for the meaning of irony. Read Far side!
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!
[Newest]Very witty. dark, absurd. Where did he come up with this stuff? Genius

7Zits
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.

8Beetle Bailey

9Dilbert
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.
Microsoft released Dilbert's Desktop Games (as DreamWorks Interactive) on CD-ROM as a PC arcade game for Windows involving Dilbert and his friends.

10Bloom 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.

The Contenders

11B.C.
As good as the Clam got Hands

12Archie
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.
Soon after the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles became extremely popular, comic strip publishing company Archie Comic Publications released a few of those comic books based off the animated series from the 80s.

13Doonesbury

14Dennis 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.

15Fred Basset

16The 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.

17Spy vs. Spy

18The Adventures of Tintin
These comics are the best and full of adventure and thrills
I love it so many cases to solve

19Get Fuzzy
hard to chose,but this is my favorite at the moment
