Actually the King of Id's crown looks like a weird flat hat.  My rule: if it makes your head look like Boris Karloff's Frankenstein, it's not a real crown.  Maybe they gave him an ashtray and told him it was a crown.

You know some very flouncingly dressed accountants.

This is what a king looks like in Saudi Arabia:

WHAT IS THE POINT OF BEING A KING IF YOU DON'T EVEN GET A CROWN?!

Well, crowns are more a European king thing. It's not really a tradition in the Middle East.

I will say that all these legacy strips that are being posted (not so much the ones like Pogo or Crazy Kat, the ones that ended long ago) do exactly nothing for me. Though I don't believe I'll be going out of my way to speak disparagingly of them.

And I also really, really hope Hsu and Chan makes the list. If it doesn't it'll be partly my fault, as despite my almost slavish devotion to all things Norm Scott, I neglected to include it (I don't know why I forgot Magazine Strips for this list, or even why I didn't count it as a webcomic).

Despite my avatar, BC didn't make my list. I liked the comic strip, I guess, but Johnny Hart has some politics with which I can't agree, so when it came time to whittle the list down I just felt like his views colored my feelings about BC so it didn't make the cut.

Also, one last comment about Family Circus -- I put that strip on my list in good faith because I like the comic, but if it's pissed off the same crowd that said "Cool As Ice" was the greatest movie to come out of the nineties, then now, more than ever, I'm glad it made my list.

For a forum based around Rifftrax, people around here don't seem to get jokes...

Then again, maybe I'm missing your joke. I'll just assume you're joking.

I was going to say something similar, but I feared wurolf's comment may have been a joke I didn't get. That would be embarrassing.

And yet when called to defend Cool As Ice, you and your friends insisted that you genuinely thought Cool As Ice was the best movie to come out of the nineties. Now it's a joke?

Us reacting to Family Circus in the same way people reacted to Cool as Ice is the joke.

I wish I'd submitted to this list.  Comic strips is one of the few topics I could come up with 25 entries for.  Calvin and Hobbes definitely would have been #1 on my list, and I won't be surprised if it takes the #1 spot here.  I'll be surprised if it doesn't at least get top 5.

I'm fully expecting it to.

I said it in a way that's easy to miss, but it did not (and no votes for Nestor and Howard from Nintendo Power.  That takes me back).

At any rate, I prefer the Nietzsche Family Circus
