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.

Once upon a time there was a duplex where a young bachelor named Eno and his dog, Fang, shared an ultra-macho haven of beer snacks and male-bonding.

Welcome to Snug Harbor! Will Henry's “Wallace the Brave” is a whimsical comic strip that centers around a bold and curious little boy named Wallace, his best friend Spud and the new girl in town, Amelia. Wallace lives in the quaint and funky town of Snug Harbor with his fisherman father, plant loving mother and feral little brother, Sterling. THE CAST: Wallace McClellan: Wallace is a curious and kind little kid. Bold and adventurous, Wallace is always eager to explore. Sterling McClellan: Sterling is Wallace's younger and stranger little brother. Some say he was raised by wolves, others just think he's weird. Mrs McClellan: Wallace's mother is an avid gardener. She is understanding and stern but, like most moms, is a natural problem solver. Mr. McClellan: Wallace's father is a goofy fisherman who likes to have fun...usually at the expense of his children. Spud: Spud is Wallace's best friend. He's been described as a “timid paperweight” and expects a horrific monster around every corner. Amelia: Amelia is the new girl in town and you don't want to mess with her. She is opinionated and a true instigator.

Tired of art snobs and their stuffy old museums? So was Steve Melcher, so he created That Is Priceless -- dedicated to taking art’s greatest masterpieces down a peg with irreverent new titles. You don’t have to be an art lover to appreciate Steve’s sticking it to the man on a regular basis – especially when that man is someone like Caravaggio, who when you look a little closer, was really kind of a jerk.
