A Family Circus Christmas

I was going to save this for Christmas 2021, but then realized I should not deprive anyone of immediate viewing of this masterpiece.

I always liked it when one of the characters was followed by a dotted line to show their adventures, or misadventures, during a day.

“Family Circus” was every parent’s favorite comic strip, and it was a staple in pretty much all newspapers for decades (back when newspaper comics were a thing).

In the early days of the internet, my favorite site was “The Dysfunctional Family Circus.” Here, visitors were presented with captionless FC panels, and they could add their own captions. As you could imagine, the results were nasty, messed up, and utterly hilarious. Legend has it that the comic’s syndicate wanted to sue for copyright infringement, but the strip’s creator instead politely asked the DFC website to please stop making fun of his strip. The webmaster was supposedly so touched that he immediately took down the site.

I supposed 'newspaper comics' are no longer a thing, but only because newspaper aren't really a thing anymore.

My daily ritual includes reading over a hundred comic strips a day. A few are in 'classic' mode (reruns), but most are still being drawn. Check out gocomics.com, arcamax.com, and tapas.io for a wide range. Some of my favorites are: 9 Chickweed Lane, Arctic Circle, Phoebe and Her Unicorn, and Smith.
