This strip follows the life of a jaded twenty-something, who is realizing that the real world isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Welcome to Comic Strip Archive!
We've compiled links to old comic strips for every comic we could find. Click on the links below or to the left to view strips from the past few years, or even further back in some cases.
Please keep in mind that ComicStripArchive.com does not own the rights to these comic strips, nor do we host them on our server. We just provide an easy-to-navigate group of links to publicly available pages on the web.
This is a great way to find a strip or two you may have missed, or to learn about the back story on a strip you just started reading. Strips that tell a continuous story, like For Better Or For Worse, Judge Parker, and Spiderman, just to name a few, all have a complex array of characters and backstories. It's nice to be able to read the past few years of strips to catch up on the comic strips' history.

So I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time, and never got around to it. The wait is now over!
There are a lot of great web comics out there, but it’s not always easy for web comics and readers to connect. In an effort to help everyone involved, I am holding the first annual web comic contest here at the Comic Strip Archive.
This site typically gets about 10,000 visitors a day, so this should help get some much-needed exposure to some very good web comics. Right now, I just need nominations. Post a comment on this post with your nomination, including the name of the web comic, and the URL. In a week or two, I’ll go through the nominations, and start the voting.
Be sure to Subscribe to our Twitter feed and Become Our Fan on Facebook, so we can notify you when the contest starts. Obviously, any help spreading the word would be much appreciated.
Nominations are open…………. NOW!

Tony DiPreta, a cartoonist who drew Rex Morgan, M.D. from 1994-2000, as well as other strips like “Joe Palooka”, died Wednesday of cardiac arrest at his home in Connecticut.

As you probably saw, Dilbert may be made into a live-action movie. I came across an article today about comic strips that deserve movies. With Marmaduke and Garfield getting their own movies, maybe some good comic strips could get a chance on the silver screen.
Here’s the list. What do you think?
- Calvin and Hobbes
- Get Fuzzy
- Spy vs. Spy
- Bloom County/Outland
- Liberty Meadows
- Little Nemo in Slumberland
- Zippy the Pinhead
- Prince Valiant
You can see the rationale for each at Television Without Pity.

According to Pajiba, Phoenix Entertainment and Intrigue Entertainment are set to produce a live action Dilbert movie.
Dilbert is one of the most popular (and one of the funniest, in my opinion) comic strips of all time, and the powers that be seem to think that director Ken Kwapis will be able to turn the comic strip into a workable live-action movie.
I think I speak for most people when I say I have my doubts. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any type of animation turned into something live action that wasn’t a complete mess. Animation gives the writer the freedom to do just about anything with their characters, and trying to put that in to the world where we live never seems to work.
What do you think? Can something like this work because of the strip’s success, or is the project doomed from the start?

See Update Below
As I mentioned before, Judge Parker artist Eduardo Barreto fell ill several weeks ago, and was temporarily replaced by a ghost artist.
It was announced recently that artist Mike Manley has become Barreto’s permanent replacement. I’m not sold on Manly’s interpretation quite yet, but it always takes a while to get used to a new artist. We’ll see how the strip progresses over the next few months.
Update: I was under the impression that Manley was the ghost artist and had been recently awarded the job full-time, but many astute readers pointed out that this was incorrect. The interim artist is John Heebink. Mike Manley’s strips will start on March 15th.
Here’s a side by side:
Barreto – Judge Parker – 02/21/2010
John Heebink – Judge Parker – 02/19/2010

If you’re up on all the latest comic strip news, you may have heard that Judge Parker artist Eduardo Barreto has fallen gravely ill, and will likely cease drawing Judge Parker – at least for a while. The new artist has already started drawing the weekday strips, as you can see here:
Judge Parker – 02/15/2010
Quite different from Barreto’s style, to be sure.

Tom Batuik is a big fan of bad puns, as can easily be seen in both of his strips, Funky Winkerbean, and Crankshaft. The past few days have been so terrible, even the characters themselves are getting sick of them.
Funky Winkerbean – 01/27/2010
Funky Winkerbean – 01/26/2010

This reminds me of my highschool days, when our grades went A-E. An “E” meant you failed. It seems for most students, the latter grades skip over “E” entirely, and go straight to “F”. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that wasn’t from my hometown that ever received an “E” on a test for failing – until now! Perhaps Archie Andrews and I attended the same high school.

Lie all you want Leroy, but Dr. Blog isn’t fooled and Loretta is pissed. Your poor acting job is going to get you some more “poking” when you get home.
