I like the Plumeri & Bloz Dinosaur series because you're learning and reading funny comic strips at the same time. (Henri, 8 years)

Phonogram is seeped in music knowledge and nostalgia and, as a music lover, it captivates me. Volume 2 is the most accessible and enjoyable of the series thus far.

Calvin and Hobbes offered humor and world commentary that is still relevant today. It uniquely marked the end of popular comics in newspapers and ended on a creative high note.

The Far Side, which began in 1980. The perfect comic for a (later to be known as.) Generation X-er coming of age in the 80s.

I remember grabbing for the paper as soon as my parents were done with it to read Hagar the Horrible. I enjoyed being part of their dysfunctional-yet-normal family every week., and loosely seeing my family reflected in the jokes.
