Comic strips refer to newspaper comics ("funnies"), not comic books like Spiderman, etc.
This does not include webcomics as there are so many of those that they deserve their own topic.

If you're going to attempt to make an [Essentials] thread, you need negatives.

You're not new and inventive by not having negatives, you're just trying something that's proven NOT to work.

No one's trying to be "new and inventive." He's the thread starter and he can make the rules. Where's this proof anyways?

There won't even be enough overall votes to justify the use of negatives. They might be necessary for the DS games thread, but not for something small like this.

Calvin and Hobbes

These two cartoons ran simultaneously for a period of 10 years and boy oh boy that must've been an amazing time to actively read comics in the newspapers. I wish I could say that I was aware of these during that time but I was much too young to pay attention to comics back then. Luckily my brother has introduced me to them after the fact and for that I am grateful. Amazing series, both of them.

Anyone who doesn't vote for Calvin and Hobbes should be banned.
Definitely Calvin and Hobbes. Also Bloom County, Dilbert and Non-Sequitur. Can I add online comics in strip format? If so: Sinfest, Penny Arcade and Ozzy and Millie definitely have to go on the list. Honestly, Sinfest is like the perfect strip for people to graduate to after reading Calvin and Hobbes.

List updated.
I'm pretty sure there was a topic for webcomics already, so I'm not going to include them.

For the record, my votes were for:
- Calvin and Hobbes
- Foxtrot
- Garfield
- The Far Side

I would have to give a +1 to Calvin and Hobbes (mostly because I have the box collector's edition with every C&H comic strip he made).
