Where Else Do You Go to Fill Your Comics Needs?

It's a fact that stares us in the face even more closely than a foregrounded Bucky Katt in a fit of crazy-eyed piqué: If you're a fairly serious comics reader in this time of cuts, no one newspaper is going to satisfy all your needs.

When I grew up reading first the San Francisco Chronicle and then the Los Angeles Times, the print comics -- like elsewhere -- were bountiful fields of tints and tones and legible text. Which is why it was a revelation to me come 1998, when my syndicated strip began to find an additional reach with hundreds of thousands of online readers. Suddenly, it seemed, a cartoonist could have the best of both worlds.

Now, though, as a reader I find so relatively little in print (The Post section is still healthier than most), so I travel and trek to syndicate sites (such as the ones listed in the menu at right), wander from to the Houston Chronicle site, then all my fave smaller sites, including webcomics..

So the Question of the Day to you is: Where else do you go besides The Post print comics to get your fill of funnies?
