I like a lot of old comics

The Squirrel Cage (This is a very funny yet obscure comic)
Krazy Kat

Barney Google (The original Barney Google, not how it is being written today)

Thimble Theater (This is the comic which is now known as just popeye)

I find that some of the best and funniest comics can be found in treasuries of old comics

I'm a big fan of Frank Hampson's Dan Dare from the 50's comic 'The Eagle'.
They are currently being reprinted in book form and published by Titan.
In my opinion, Hampson should have the same kind of fame that Hergé has attained. Unfortunately the rights to his creation were taken away from him by his publishers and he ended his days, a broken man, working for peanuts as a technical illustrator for a local college.
I'm sure one day there will be a Dan Dare film which will make him better known.
In the meantime he is featured in a new BBC TV series about British comics:

I don't like superhero comics because there are too many characters with intertwining plotlines and those too are pretty much cliched.

Favorite Comics
-The Dark Knight Returns, The Dark Knight Strikes Back and Sin City By Frank Miller.
-Tin tin
-Bone by Jeff Smith
-Welcome Home Frank (Punisher)
-Peanuts
-Asterix
-Menneskesønnen (The Son of Man, Danish) by Peter Madsen
I really like a good painting job, and Peter Madsen, Hergé and Lynn Varley, really know how to make me happy. If it is a matter of black and white I will turn to Frank Miller and Jeff Smith. Peanuts and Asterix is pure entertainment, but it makes me laugh for hours (or at least 15 sec.)
