The Big Picture
This high-flying single-panel comic spotlights and savors the foibles, stupidity, and goofiness of our colorful unnatural world. It's all about attitude, as the denizens of Bluemel's realm devote themselves to surviving life's pitfalls, whether nesting in quicksand or coping with the technological advances of the tapeworm. From word play to fowl play, from weirdness in the wilderness, to the irony of iron ore, Birdbrains makes the offbeat seem natural. It's a feature to laugh at: if it makes you think, you're working too hard.
Bloom County, a 1980s cartoon-comic strip that dealt with socio-political issues as seen through the eyes of highly exaggerated characters (e.g. Bill the Cat and Opus the Penguin) and humorous analogies. Creator Berkeley Breathed's first regularly published strip, Academia Waltz, appeared in the Daily Texan in 1978. The strip attracted notice from the editors of the Washington Post who recruited him to do a nationally syndicated strip. On December 8, 1980, Bloom County made its debut and featured some of the characters from Academia Waltz, including former frat-boy Steve Dallas and the paraplegic Vietnam War veteran Cutter John. Bloom County earned Berkeley the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 1987. The strip eventually appeared in over 1,200 newspapers around the world until he retired the daily strip in 1989, stating, "A good comic strip is no more eternal than a ripe melon. The ugly truth is that in most cases, comics age less gracefully than their creators". The comic continues in recirculation on GoComics!

Other ingredients in this comic strip stew include Frank's girlfriend- the effervescent "foofy coffee chick" Lezley, her daughter Lauren and Maggie, the overly protective pug mix.

Humor gets to go places polite company simply can't. Cornered often wanders into "what if" territory, but it's well worth the risk.
Cowtown is a hand-drawn, hand-painted, hand-lettered panel cartoon produced by Charlie Podrebarac since 1984.

Speaking of the latter, Cowtown is also a Barbecue Sauce! Huh? Yes! Moo!
Behold, an un-pale horse with no name. Oh, wait. His name is Horace. And he's sarcastic. And silly. And lives in an infinitely expandable world. And sometimes gets slapstuck. And day after unpredictable day he boldly goes where no horse -- let alone a comic strip -- has gone before. Yes, there are sidekicks; a bird, a lady horse, a never-seen neighbor. And if the post-it note did not exist, Samson would have had to invent it so Horace would have yellow panels in which to play. Welcome to the bright side of the world. May the horse be with you.

"Frog Applause reminds one of learning to read, in the sense that each word in the captions seems 'surprising' and new. Teresa's writing takes one back to that fresh state of mind (typical of, but of course not limited to, childhood) in which the brain, free of preconceptions, doesn't 'fill in' any blind spots along the way but rather wholly embraces the present moment as it unfolds. Every sentence is literally an imagination-expanding adventure." — Craig Conley, author of One-Letter Words: A Dictionary (HarperCollins)

Looks Good On Paper is America's newest and most off-the-wall comic feature by long time cartoonist Dan Collins. Dan is the James Kirk of cartoonists; he boldly goes where no cartoonist has gone before, seeking out new gags and new situations, occasionally stopping to kiss green alien girls and violating the Temporal Prime Directive. (That last part is mostly because he doesn't manage his time well.) Dan's crazy cartoon world is inhabited by Amish Yodas, biker cat gangs, frogs who eat out and basketball playing eyeballs. His unpredictable humor comes from some area of the brain as yet unidentified by medical science, so there's just no telling what marvelous madness you'll find here each week! So, if you like your comics throwing you curveballs from left field, then you're in the right ball park. His jokes are set on stun, his engines are definitely warped and his parting refrain is "Laugh long and prosper!" Visit the Website!

A wacky one-panel for the more erudite reader, Loose Parts combines literary references with bad puns and brings together everything from nursery rhymes to '60s elevator music.
What can one say about Lug Nuts that hasn't already been said? Pretty much everything, really. There aren't a lot of people talking about it, including J.C. Duffy. Especially in mixed company. This rambling paragraph will blow the lid off that conspiracy of silence, unless the lid is too heavy, like a manhole cover. That leads to hernias. Better to let sleeping dogs lie, and metaphors mix. Suffice it to say that this is a comic strip with baseless delusions of grandeur, prompting occasional forays into uncharted territory, a dark forest where head-scratching and madness lurk behind every hollow log, and hollow leg. Fasten your spats, and if you're on your bike, wear white. Remember to tip your waitress, and if a horse answers, hang up.
"Once every 5 or 10 years, a new comic feature emerges that's truly unique, breaking the mold of the tired, formulaic pack that populates most of the comics page. Mike Du Jour is such a feature. The art alone is a joy to look at, bringing a smile to your face and making you linger on it. That alone makes it special in today's comic field, but coupled with Mike Lester's whimsical, unpredictable wit, MDJ is a daily must-read. Mike Lester is truly a master of comic art." —Wiley Miller, Non Sequitur
