Favorite currently running comic strips.

Unfortunately, a lot of our all-time favorite comic strips (Calvin and Hobbes, Far Side, Bloom County) are no longer running.

So, what are your favorite daily comic strips that are still running? I like Baby Blues.

I haven't read newspaper comics regularly in well over a decade.

Is Pearls Before Swine still in syndication?

I can only read them when I'm at my parent's place, but I'll second Pearls. Also XKCD and Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal if webcomics are allowed.

I haven't picked up a green sheet in over a decade. As if the heck I know what's current.

If webcomics are allowed, gotta go with BCDE, Oglaf and Girl Genius, nevermind none of them are daily.

(Serious answer I don't read it often but I do like that current run of Nancy)

Wow, you guys all have terrible taste.

If we're including webcomics, I follow Oglaf, Whomp!, and Awkward Zombie, plus numerous others on Webtoon and Tapas.

I have no taste because Vals comic is the only comic I read. Online or printed.

But one could say then I have exquisite taste then also.

Most of my favorite strips have ended: Calvin & Hobbes, Bloom County/Outland/Opus, Hark A Vagrant, Fireflower.
At least there's still Pearls Before Swine, BCDE, & Breaking Cat News. I'm taking a liking to Strange Planet, too.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

I really like 'Dilbert'. It has its misses, but a lot more hits. I don't even work in an office, but boy can I relate to the 'I'm surrounded by idiots and miscreants, and management is either too corrupt, too stupid or too powerless to do anything about it' tone.
