You mean how many there are?
If that's what you're asking then my answer is 4.

This should definitely go in Media.

I have only one thing to say regarding newspaper comics:

It's possible, I never read Bloom County. But really, I think no newspaper comic will ever be better than Calvin and Hobbes.

Also how can you not like Get Fuzzy and/or Pearls Before Swine, Jitka

Do you have no soul

My newspaper does not print either of those. I'm also not about to buy a book full of stuff I'm not sure I like.

After reading the first panel of that, I knew something was up. Sooo bad.

Still doesn't change my opinion that PBS is great.

It's just terrible. There's no humor there, it's just a retarded pun. Worthless.

Way to judge the entire comic on just one strip. Good going.

Although I can still understand why you might not like Pearls Before Swine, it's a little formulaic. Get Fuzzy, on the other hand... You'd need like... a 5-page essay to explain to me how you can find that unfunny.

I like how the mouse was going to do what we all wanted to do.

I was reading one of my Far Side books today and I am beginning to wonder how much of an influence Gary Larson had on Seth McFarlane.

There are some similarities in the way they make jokes by humorously interpreting everyday things.

Jikta is a soulless husk of a man

I will admit PBS resorts to dumb puns sometimes, but it's usually really good. You have to have a good knowledge of other comics to appericate some of the jokes, however. Get Fuzzy, on the other hand...I can't see how anyone could hate it.

If you just have to have a "punch line", it's not the pun that's supposed to be funny. It's that Pastis' own characters are going to kill him for it.

^Well yeah, he kind of does have to have a punch line. Otherwise you get what, Dick Tracy?

Does anybody under 67 read Dick Tracy?

Post subject:  Re: Paper Comics - Books, The Funnies, Novels, NO MANGA

I've seen at least five other terrible pun-based strips for PBS, all of which end with the rat threatening Pastis. Formulaic. Worthless.

Get Fuzzy is also formulaic. Cat is mean. Dog is dumb. Human is bemused. Stupid.

All comics are formulaic to a degree, with maybe the exception of the Far Side, which we can all agree was excellent, but these two aren't even funny about it.

I also hate Marmaduke.
