Comic strips reflect and mimic life.

They help elevate some of the pressure, stress and uncertainty of life.

Comic strips tell a story in a way books, movies, music, poems and plays are unable to.

This e-book is a collection of the greatest comics and comic strips over the past one-hundred years, and then some.

You’ll be amazed how well they reflect life, business, politics, religion and family today.

More important, they’re funny, relevant and incredibly witty.

Almost everyone knows what a comic strip is but here’s an explanation so we’re all on the same page….

A comic strip is a sequence of drawings arranged in panels to display brief humor or form a narrative. They are often serialized; meaning each drawing in a panel is related to the next panel.

Comic strips typically include text in balloons or sidebars with captions.

Throughout the 20th century comic strips were published in newspapers, magazines and circulars with horizontal strips printed in black-and-white.

In time, Sunday edition newspapers carried comic strips in color.

There were more than 220 different comic strips in American newspapers each day for most of the 20th century, for a total of more than 7,350,000 episodes!

The following is my best selection of the greatest comic strips of all time.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Please write to me with your ideas, suggestions or submission requests.

You’re free to share these as they are royalty free.
