Savage Chickens began on a rainy day in October 2004 when, after one too many migraines, Doug Savage scribbled two chickens on a sticky note. Thousands of comics later, Savage still draws every comic on a yellow sticky note, and his work covers an eclectic range of topics, including: work, psychology, arachnophobia, pop culture, cats, time travel, love, zombies, and more.
Dave Whamond offers an offbeat view of the world in Reality Check, a panel strip that exposes the hidden hilarity in everyday situations. Whamond explains, "I just frame some of the silliness of everyday life and invite people to do a double-take."
J.C. Duffy's hilarious strip features the four Fusco bachelors - Rolf, Lance, Al and Lars, along with Lance's girlfriend, Gloria, and Axel, the faithful wolverine. For off-the-wall antics and verbal acrobatics, you must go Fusco.

The most beloved comic strip in history is an American cultural icon.
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.

Pickles, syndicated by The Washington Post Writers Group for more than 15 years, tells the story of Earl and Opal Pickles as they enjoy their golden years surrounded by friends and family.

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.
Dark Side of the Horse
Frank and Ernest chronicles the antics of two ordinary guys who are anything but ordinary. They appear in different settings and time periods, occasionally showing up as things rather than people. Punny, whimsical and hard to predict, Frank and Ernest has been a funny pages favorite since 1972.
