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.

Julie Larson began writing The Dinette Set comic in 1990, then called Suburban Torture, offering a satire on middle class culture. The Dinette Set became syndicated in 1997. When asked where Julie gets all of her ideas, she admits there is only one way to write a daily comic: write about what you know. "I make no bones about who’s really talking in The Dinette Set," says Julie, who is writer, director and cast of The Dinette Set. "If we can’t make fun of ourselves, who will?"

Eyebeam is a strip that regularly blends the mundane with the surreal. Eyebeam is a law student, and later a lawyer, who tinkers with his time machine in his spare time. He struggles to balance his relationships with his girlfriend Sally, his hapless housemate Ratliff, and his own personal hallucination, Hank. As a unique artifact of Eyebeam’s psyche, Hank is the most private of figures, so it’s problematic when he decides to run for public office.

Meet the Deweys: Norm mows the lawn at 10 p.m. ... Claire and her punk band dial it to 11 when they practice in the basement ... Jake just set fire to the neighbor's compost heap ... and Jan is simply trying to keep up with the bills. Just another day in the neighborhood. They're the Next Door Neighbors -- stop by and say hello. Meet the Dewey family: Not-so-proud patriarch Norm works (sleepwalks through) a nondescript blue-collar job, loves beer (and cocktails) and spends most of his time in sloth-like bliss in front of the TV and parking cars in the lawn. His idea of fitness is binge-watching "The Biggest Loser." Norm's better half, Jan, works part-time, is a voracious reader, and essentially keeps everything running smoothly at Chez Dewey ... someone has to. Claire, their 17-year old daughter, is rude ... with 'tude to spare ... plays bass in a punk band, writes songs, and just wants to go on tour ... anything to get out of 6th period math class. Twelve-year-old Jake is often found sporting a D average in school, excels in advanced-placement detention, and works hard to be the bad influence to all the other kids in the neighborhood. They're loud ... they're obnoxious ... and definitely not the model family ... They're the Deweys -- and they live next door.
Next Door Neighbors
Dogs, bosses, garden slugs, who sits next to who at Thanksgiving, cheating at golf, fretting the night away, carping couples on long trips, eating over the sink, toenail clippings, cosmic order, hairballs, flop sweat, coughing into one's elbow, clogged pipes, clogged arteries, parking crooked at the mall. That's what real life is all about. And that's what Real Life Adventures is all about. For nearly two decades, Lance (Aldrich) and Gary (Wise) have drawn, and drawn from, the everyday stuff that we all slog through. And on any given day, they like to think their little square slice of life is a nice change from the rickety roller coaster the rest of the world seems to be. Want to share your life's goofiosity with them? Just post here.

Reply All highlights those moments in today's information-overloaded environment when you forget your adult-self and toss the megaphone to your fifth-grade inner child. Its main character, Lizzie is a busy-single-woman-with-successful-career-in-the-big-city who has a lot of those moments. Cartoonist Donna A. Lewis, an attorney at Homeland Security, admits she "clearly needs an outlet for the stress of working in the nationâ€™s capital." Lewis taught herself to draw in law school (where doodling was the only escape from reality) and to write punch lines in the courtroom (no disrespect to judges, attorneys, plaintiffs or defendants intended). Lewis comes from "an annoyingly funny family" that provides material faster than she can "translate it into a written product." Now, she says, "The years of listening to their absurd notions about the world are finally providing value to my life." Lewis states that no family members were harmed in the creation of this strip, and some names were left unchanged in order to incriminate those deserving of such.

Nicole Hollander uses her strong cast of characters -- a fairy godmother, the Woman Who Does Everything More Beautifully Than You, demon dogs and malicious cats -- to discuss social issues. Sylvia provides advice on everything from feminism to fashion, making it a hit with female readers.
This quick-witted, wry and intelligent comic about modern society is appreciated by all of us who must live life on its own terms. Creator Mike Twohy intended to make a living as a painter and teaching art, but cartooning called.

Watch Your Head chronicles the lives of six students attending Oliver Otis University. The strip is told largely through the eyes of Cory, a freshman who’s academically brilliant and socially awkward, especially with girls. His first friend at Otis U. is Omar, a recluse who some suspect is tied umbilically to his computer. Quincy, Omar’s friend (and therefore Cory’s friend by default), seems primarily to be studying women and fun and rarely has a serious moment. Kevin is a foreigner times two, one of the few whites on the predominantly black campus, and Canadian to boot. Robin is the object of Cory’s crush, the woman who leaves him befuddled and tongue-tied. And Jason is Cory’s roommate and polar opposite.
