24 Hilarious Comic Strips That Will Have Dying With Laughter
Comic strips are the best part of reading a newspaper (bar the sports section). Unlike a comic book, these short newspaper comics only take up a few panels but are hilarious and will have you weeping with laughter. The first newspaper comic strips originated in America in the 19th century and steadily became a regular part of every paper, from the now-defunct New York World to The Washington Post. Some of the best titles to come out during the heyday of newspaper comic strips include Charlie Brown, Beetle Bailey, Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, Krazy Kat, and Dick Tracy. Just like a graphic novel or comic featuring your favorite superhero, these one or two-panel comic strips cover a wide range of subjects and topics, from commentaries on world events to funny gags and random jokes about life.
Although not as prevalent in newspapers as they once were, the internet has given comic strips a new lease of life. The internet enables artists to create their own comic strips and publish them online for the world to see. Social media has also helped push the comic strip back into the spotlight, with many great artists posting their comics on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
Everybody loves the classic Sunday strip but these days the newspaper comic strip is barely hanging on. Most people prefer to get their news from the internet, and with American newspapers falling in sales, it’s rendering these comic strips obsolete. That’s not what we want, so to keep the comic strip alive, we have found some of the funniest online designs by an array of clever creators we think you will enjoy.
Short, sharp, and straight to the point, these hilarious comic strips will give you a good laugh and brighten up your day.
