The legendary hero Tarzan enjoys the distinction of starring in the first adventure comic strip, the first continuity strip and the first strip to appeal to readers for multiple generations. Some of these storylines date back decades, but the ape man's adventures never get old.

Monty Montahue, the brainy, bumbling bachelor who's unlucky in work and love, is the star of this suburbia-spoofing, time-traveling comic strip by Jim Meddick. Monty's quirky adventures often involve his pal Moondog, his hairless cat, Fleshy, trusty cyborg, EB3, and mad scientist, Doc.
Living in an enchanted forest with surrealistic landscapes, the engaging characters of Broom Hilda happily have no connection with reality. Other comic characters are extensions or distortions of reality, but Broom Hilda deals in pure fantasy, making the strip bewitchingly unique. Here in the forest, the inhabitants maintain a standard of madness where total irrelevance is the only relevancy. The strip is simply a loony-bin where what’s said and done often makes no sense whatsoever, much to the joy of its millions of fans.

A fantastic saga of adventure both high and low, of forbidden passion and iambic pentameter, of fays, fools, organists, demons, accordions, heaven, hell and Shakespeare, Pibgorn follows the whims and flights of its eponymous fairy heroine as she plies her conviction that there must be more to life than depositing dew drops on dandelions and sleeping under mushrooms.

Dinosaur Comics is a comic where the pictures never change, but the words do! IT'S HONESTLY BETTER THAN IT SOUNDS. T-Rex, Utahraptor, Dromiceiomimus and friends discuss Very Important Things, ranging from the nature of love all the way to whether or not who smelt it is truly the same as whosoever dealt it. (This hasn't actually happened in the comic, but it's actually not a bad idea).
