"Yippee, we're all gonna die!" — some 60s era song


Country Joe and the Fish, "I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die Rag"


Updating that last line ...

"Come on, Wall Street, let's move fast
Your big chance has come at last
Plenty good money to be made
By supplying the army
With the tools of the trade
Just hope and pray, when they drop the bomb
They drop it on Kim Jong Un."

I realized last night that I'm more worried about nuclear conflict right now than I have been since the height of the Cold War, when I was 8 years old living in South Dakota within sight of a big Air Force base and a bunch of Minuteman missile silos. If the orange dumbass isn't careful he's going to get several million people killed, and the scary part is he doesn't seem to understand that. It also occurred to me that if a mushroom cloud did rise over New York or San Francisco, there's a non-zero number of his supporters who'd cheer, and the rest would blame Obama.

'Fraid so, Brian

Tom Lehrer is still alive, wonder if he is writing songs about Trump? Nevermind, he doesn't have to:
So long, mom!
I'm off to drop the Bomb
So don't wait up for me...

Paul Berge

Too true, Brian Fies.
Urban nuclear holocaust could be voter suppression beyond the GOP's wildest dreams.

What's so funny?

  • I read some 175 or more comics a day. Each day, I post a strip or two here that made me laugh, made me think or impressed me with its artistry. It's my hope that you'll see some new strips here and decide to follow that artist's work, and perhaps even to support that work by purchasing a collection of strips. But, mostly, I hope you'll find this a place to get a laugh or share a thought each day. After all, comic strips are a very demanding art form, but the ultimate point of all that work and all those deadlines is to give readers a little pleasure each day. If you find a comic hard to read, clicking on it will open a slightly larger version. (You may find that right-clicking and opening in a new tab produces a better result.) All comics here are copyrighted by their creators. -- Mike Peterson

The Prime Directive

  • The Prime Directive is that we don't single out comics for snark and abuse. This may change once I've won a couple of Pulitzers and a Reuben or two.

Independent publishers

  • Independent comic collections
    Not all cartoonists market their collections through Amazon. Here's where cartoonists can list their independently published, and marketed, collections and where fans can find, and buy, them.

Blog Roll

  • Comics Worth Reading
    Independent Opinions by Johanna Draper Carlson and friends News and reviews of graphic novels, manga, comic books, and related subjects
  • Comic Riffs
    Michael Cavna's Washington Post column on comics and related media news.
  • Mike Lynch Cartoons
    Cartoonist Mike Lynch's blog: Fascinating archival stuff he's found and scanned, tips on how cartooning really works and progress reports on his garden (in season).
  • The Comics Reporter
    Tom Spurgeon's Web site of comics news, reviews, interviews and commentary
  • Cartoon Movement
    An international site with sociopolitical cartoons from around the world, curated by Dutch cartoonist Tjeerd Royaards. A real mix of impressionistic panels and short-form graphic journalism.
  • Africartoons
    Cartoons from across Africa, which has an extremely lively cartooning culture. Most of the material requires you to be on top of African current events and political personalities, but even when you're not sure of the specifics, there's some creative stuff to envy in the lively nature of the art form as practiced there.


  • GoComics.com
    Universal Press Syndicate's page. You can click on each strip and read for free, but for $11.88 a year, you can create your own page of strips and also avoid pop-ups. It's worth it.

Comics Kingdom

  • Comics Kingdom
    King Features' site, with free comics if you don't mind a truncated service, or a very good paid site for $20 a year. Some of the benefits, including Vintage strips, require that paid subscription. It's worth it.
