Funny business: Help us update our comics section

February 21, 2010


Are those little tikes from “Family Circus” still cute?

Does “Shoe” still shine?

Is “Home and Away” here for good or ready to hit the road?

When you read “Peanuts,” do you smile or do you say, “Good grief”?

It’s been nearly five years since our last comics poll. Now, we want you to tell us again what are must-reads and what you pass by.

There are two ways to participate:
• Fill out the survey in Sunday's Lawrence Journal-World and mail it in. No photo copied ballots will be counted.
• Complete this online ballot. You can vote only once.

We also have a Comics Sound Off hotline to leave a comment. Call 785-832-7145. Those views won’t be part of the balloting, however.

The next step is up to you. If you tell us that some of our comics just aren’t that good anymore, we will look for replacements.

The deadline to vote is midnight on Sunday, Feb. 28. We will remind you about the poll a few times this week.

Family Circus sucks, Fox Trot and Zippy are good.

It's all about Piled Higher and Deeper. :D This is a college town! :)

XKCD. Woot.

Dilbert reminds me of when I worked in an office. Whew! :) So glad I have other options. :D

LJworld needs to add Perry Bible Fellowship and Red Meat.

♣Mutts is stupid, and I love dogs and cats.

Hermann is pointless much of the time, and mean, rude, and stupid other times. Get rid of it. And although I have always loved Peanuts, I think it's time to retire it. They are all reruns.

♣Agree with tomatogrower. The cartoonist has died, people are just trying to live off of him now. I'm sure he left plenty for his heirs, when that runs out, get a job.

Its not like you have to put your real name or address.

Family Circus is absolutely horrible and needs to die.

I do like Get Fuzzy, Non Sequitor, and Zits.

They already have my name and address since I get the paper.

Keep Sherman's Lagoon, Dilbert, & Off the Mark. Do what you will with the rest.

yep and when he does a small group of people in the lpd will be held accountable for the stuff they have done to him. (5 years 2 months and still no trial)
