Heartwarming cartoons, gone horribly awry

And now, the Everything Old Is New Again Dept. brings you the The Dysfunctional Family Circus Archive. It's been five years since Spinn (a.k.a. Greg Galcik) took down the DFC; but back in the day, the DFC was probably the funniest site on the Web (and might even qualify as the funniest since.) Imitators have sprung up since, of course; and Spinn still runs a similar site, A-1 AAA AmeriCaptions. But somehow it's not quite the same... [Possibly NSFW, if your coworkers can read text on your screen.]

Is it just me, or does this stink?

Johnny Hart at it again? "B.C." creator Johnny Hart is getting some negative publicity (again) for a comic that some say is anti-Islam. See the comic here. An outspoken Christian, Hart has had brushes with religious controversy in the past. Are people reading too much into this, or does it look like bigotry to you? (via Atrios)

Truth, Justice, and the Soviet Way

Truth, Justice, and the Soviet Way What if baby Kal-El's spaceship had crashed on Earth 12 hours earlier, in the Ukraine instead of middle America? The new 3-issue comic book series Superman: Red Son envisions the Man of Steel as a good-hearted citizen of the USSR, helping to spread communism across the world. Wonder Woman is his girlfriend; Batman is an anti-Soviet terrorist; Lex Luthor becomes U.S. president. This alternate-universe jaunt is not just for fun: writer Mark Millar says it's a timely exploration of what happens when one all-powerful country anoints itself leader of the world.

Stay off my power lines!

It's a bird, it's a plane, It's....Major Power! Celina Utilities has come up with a comic book superhero whose job it is to keep the power flowing. His arch enemy? Squirrels. Those little tree rats are jumping on his power lines and making life generally difficult for the rest of us. And he's not happy. There are some little comic strips on this page, and a link to the artist, Dan Davis, who has a decent resume himself. Via the Wall Street Journal

S2K:

S2K: So the election is over and you're sad. Right? Right? Er, well, anyway, check out this hilarious (and as-yet-unfinished) online comic featuring the guy we all secretly wanted to vote for. If we didn't already. (Features naughty words at times.)

"The irony, of course, is that I can buy the book in any country except the one I've been living in for the past 14 years."

The Adventures of Lacey Brazeer.

The Adventures of Lacey Brazeer. [Yet Another] Feminist comic strip. Courtesy, unsurprisingly, of Charlotte. I found this screamingly funny; YMMV.

This is fucked right up.
Sorry, but that's the only adequate description for it...
I love PLIF... It's one of the coolest comics ever...

Hee hee...The Boondocks, the most consistently enjoyable of all the daily comicstrips around, deftly compares the NRA to NWA. It's one of those "wish I'd 'a thunk it" moments.

If you've ever read Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics, you must read this mock review of it here, called Understanding Understanding Comics. I heard that Scott's such a great sport, he even helped out with some of the writing.

I've never heard of James Kochalka until a weblog pointed at his stuff. His comics look pretty funny, but I'm really enjoying his music, especially the stuff from the Monkey vs. Robot disc. This guy rocks.
