Do You Read the Comics?

When I was a kid, I loved to read the comics in the Sunday paper.  My Dad would save them for me.  Now, we save the comics from the paper for Pierce.  He loves to read books and funny stories.

The other day, he told me that his favorite comic was Garfield.  This warmed my heart, because my favorite comic as a kid was Garfield too.  I used to have a stuffed Garfield.

How about you, readers?  Do you read the comics?  Do you have a favorite?

I don't take the paper anymore, but as a child that was the prize in a Sunday's paper for sure!

I was before Garfield but we liked Peanuts which is what they call Charlie Brown most of the time now.

I liked Blondie. I don't know if they still have that though, since it is a long time since I bought a Sunday paper.

Garfield is one of my all time favorites. I still have my stuffed Garfield. And in my second year of college I used a Garfield tote for my books instead of a backpack. lol I like Get Fuzzy now.

I really love comics. When I was a little girl I read almost everyday and borrowed some from library almost everyday too.

I used to read a lot of them but they seem so much less funny to me now than they used to...anyhow, I still like Beetle Bailey and Hagar the Horible...that's about all I read now

No more ---but hubby still loves Dilbert (although that is not really a 'funny' comic, is it????) ha....

I do remember sharing the comics with my kids when they were little. AND--as a little girl (many moons ago), I loved reading Comic Books...

I published a cute blog today from our vacation in Cataloochee this past week. Check it out if you haven't yet.
Hugs,

I don't read them much, they used to be a treat.

This is a beautiful picture! And oh those long eyelashes and wonderful smile! That is so sweet that he loves Garfield, and NOT something violent. I liked all the Archie ones. Back then they were ten cents, and the thick seasonal ones were not much more. I would walk up the block to the corner drug store and loved waiting for the new ones!

I loved Opus.

Gail Dixon said...

I used to love Peanuts. We also liked to take silly putty and transfer the cartoons onto that. I haven't seen a newspaper in years. Sad.
