I'll say this about KFC, I'm really enjoying their TV ad campaign. I like how they're constantly changing the actor (male & female) to portray the Colonel. I like guessing who will be clad in white next.

As for the PG deplorable action of robbing their readers of Rob... I'll be moving into my new home in the Pittsburgh area soon and even though I can get all my news online, I was going to subscribe to the PG, at least the Sunday edition. Now? Forget it!

I'm sure the lack of one subscriber to the PG, won't effect them, but these days when newspapers are losing readers by the drove....

I suppose if the "Popeye Doyle" ploy fails, the chicken chain could fall back with a claim that they named themselves after the degenerate rapist in Faulkner's SANCTUARY. It might, however, make me think twice about ordering corn as a sidedish there.

I think it's been twenty years or so since I had anything from KFC, and now that a Popeye's is open just a few blocks from our house, that streak is unlikely to be broken.

KFC has gone through intervals of edibility. For a while, they had the only good chicken nuggets. Now, nobody does. Their pot pies used to be nice, but the last couple of times have discouraged me from trying again. The ones in China seem to have higher standards.

I ate at Wimpy's, in Virginia Beach, one time, and enjoyed it. The next time I wanted to go, they'd been bought out by a chain. A kind friend gave me a Wimpy's T-shirt, with J.W.W.'s smiling image on it (looking remarkably like Stu Shiffman had drawn it, but I don't think it was he).

I do like Popeye's, even though the battered food has too much fat for me to contemplate having more than once or twice a year. Their blackened chicken is growing on me, though, and now that Zatarain rice bowls have gone away, it's my main source of red beans & rice.

I respectfully disagree with your take that Trump doesn't act with malice. I think sometimes he hasn't realized the extent of the damage, but that turned out to be a nice bonus for him.

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.
