The Funnies

This is a little off-topic of family and religion, but I just wanted to share that I love the comics. I think it’s amazing how some artists and writers are so talented they can tell a story, make us laugh, make us cry, and even identify with them in just a few short panes of images and words. (Click on the comic to go to the original site.)

Comics can be amazingly accurate in their ability to reflect current trends:

Rhymes with Orange 12-12-2009

Sometimes you wonder if they have a secret recording device in your house recording your children: Family Circus 2-13-2010
They know about where you live:

Sheldon 5-29-2008
Comics even address issues related to my career:
The Other Coast 2-18-2009
They teach us:

Baldo 07-26-2007
Comics address issues for working moms:
Between Friends 04-19-2007
And stay at home moms: Baby Blues 07-06-2007
They tackle political issues: Mallard Fillmore 06-12-2008
How can you not love Danae’s frank look at the world in Non Sequitor?
Non Sequitor 12-20-2007
There’s even comics about blogging:Between Friends 05-06-2009

To view most of my comics I use the Houston Chronicle Build Your Own Comics Page for one-stop readings; however, I also subscribe to email delivery for a few others, including Unshelved and Sheldon (who also draws Drive.)

I’m curious, what are some of your favorite comics and how do you follow them online?
