I was reading the new volume of Paper Girls, and one of the characters expressed that she likes Crankshaft more than Calvin & Hobbes. I'm baffled, and concerned that Brian K. Vaughan actually thinks this.

Anyone looking for edgelord darkness in their comics really should just be reading the sad, broken down worlds illustrated in the local funnies section.

I'm honestly unsure what the point of daily newspaper strips is now. There's not enough space to develop a real joke unless you are a minimalist master, and that goes double for the artwork. And serial storytelling? You get maybe 3 sentences across 2 panels.

I just read an article about how Garfield was never meant to be funny. Just a cynical merchandising grab from the very beginning. It worked.

Bill the Cat started out as a 100% parody of how naked the merchandising of Garfield was even by the early 80s.

He also had the same catchphrase as Cathy. That's gotta mean something.

Everything means something, Kory. Or... wait, no. The opposite of that. Nothing means anything.

Is this an argument against capital punishment or for automating executions to minimize the effects on those who carry out the work of the penal system?

Star Wars (tho DS9 is close)
Superman, assuming he actually wants to win
Dick Grayson
Marvel
I have no idea what that is
Tough, but Picard (perhaps because Stewart is an infinitely better human being than Shatner)
The new lady one because she's already pissed off the asshole nerds
