    My third grade classroom had a ton of Garfield books (with the cat from Garfield?). I always finished the work early to go sit in a bean bag and read more comics!

    Garfield for sure!

    Is it weird to say I was really into Dilbert when I was young? Yes, it is.

    Definitely The Far Side, since as far back as I can remember!

    My first favorite comic was Bloom County, which my dad loved and he would have books of around the house. I don’t think I necessarily found it funny, I just liked the sad penguin and weird cat.

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout
    on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to
    see a nice blog like this one nowadays.
