Great question, Andrew. There have been too many
great strips for me to pick just one from rmcg...
Yes, looking at the RMCG yesterday made me think of comic strips...
#1. The Far Side: "God at His Computer."
Yes, a classic.
When I lived in Seattle one of my apartments was near where he
worked. Sadly, I never met him.
#2. Calvin and Hobbes: the Sunday (color) strip that
starts with "Faster, faster!"
#3. Calvin and Hobbes: the Sunday (color) strip that
starts "It's true, Hobbes. Ignorance *is* bliss."
I remember both. Anyway, I have all the published collections and
saved quite a few from the newspaper. Never get tired of them.
Obligatory guitar content: I once sang "Long Time
Travelling" at a church service in an alternating
duet with the associate minister, with both of us
playing guitar. The head minister of that church
told me he kept a copy of strip #1 on his office
desk to remind him of what he was up against.
Do you mean comic strips published in newspaper? If yes I have none ... but
if you include in that comic books ... ha! That's a different story ... on
top of my list Gaston Lagaffe with a lot of seconds, Fred, Bretecher,
Achille Talon, Tintin, asterix etc.
Obligatory zguitar content: I was playing the other night and my D string
broke unexpectedly ... I must have been in the zone because it scared the
hell out of me. Zzzzzztac!
