Many of those comic strips I rarely ever read. I think some people probably read them more out of familiarity than humor - kind of like a worn but comfy pair of slippers.

Cathy was a wonderful strip when it started (1976) - a woman in a comic strip whose main role wasn't wife, mother or object (i.e. the secretary in Beetle Bailey). But, like so many of the other comics, it now seems to be doing the same thing over and over.

Even though I don't find it funny all that much any more, I still have a soft spot for For Better or For Worse (mother with two older children and one younger juggling everything in her life - kind of familiar).

The comics that really surprise me are the ones now drawn by someone else after the original author passed away. Why not just retire them?

It's hard for new strips to break into comics, though, since so many of the papers syndicate the same ones. My cousin has drawn editorial cartoons for years, but I don't think it's ever become his main job (His incomplete website is for the curious).

So, will the next installment be "Myth and the Funnies?" (BWEG)
