Understand going into this that I flat-out abhor infantized versions of popular characters - Muppet Babies and Tiny Toons and even Littlekenny fill me with irrational anger that makes anything of that nature an automatic non-starter in my realm of interest. They're so hyper-pc and forward-apologetic and homogeneously cute, it makes me want to barf broken gin bottles at the sun.
That being said, I just blew an entire morning reading through JL8, a little kidified take on DC's Justice League, and enjoyed it considerably. Color me baffled, but I was sad when it ran out of pages. Fortunately, it's a long-term ongoing project and new strips do continue to be added at irregular intervals.

Superstar artist Rob Liefeld is the creator of Deadpool and Major X as well as the star of the internet sensation Rob Liefeld’s Cameo Videos, and now he is predicting the death of DC Comics in the near future. Liefeld took to Twitter to predict that the company will “drive off a cliff real soon,” an event for which Liefeld needs popcorn to observe.

In every strip the mundane premise of man waiting for a bus quickly escalates in a surreal and humorous world of labyrinthine cities, weird characters or giant insects. In less than six or eight wordless panels, Kirchner turns a completely conventional situation into a world where it is impossible to refer to the usual categories of logic, scale and dimension.

Prepare for warm fuzzies - here's a couple of comics about Garfield's owner Jon from the angle of him being Garfield's cartoonist. The lettering style is a little difficult to parse with these old-man eyes, but it's worth the effort. Very nicely done.
Every piece of music from the original 1967 series, talking parts and sound effects removed as much as possible, pieced back together into complete form. All the Ray Ellis music from season one is here and there's a lot from seasons 2 and 3 as well. Full list below...

When DC Comics announced its new slate of comics based on classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons, no one was really sure what to make of it. Next to no one thought that The Flintstones was going to be the breakout book of the bunch, much less one of the best comics of the year. But writer Mark Russell and artist Steve Pugh's darkly comic take on stone-age modern life manages to be funny, poignant and compelling with every issue. I never thought I'd say this, but you should check out this fantastic Flintstones comic.

Bitter truths are in abundance and the Truth Potato is on a mission to throw most of them onto our faces, to break the cloud of denial that covers our life.
What's more amusing than a cute Potato breaking your shield of denial and giving you few words of wisdom eh?

Whether she’s seen as Superman’s girlfriend or the intrepid reporter she’s been for so many years, there’s a lot more to Lois Lane than many people realize. She’s been around for so long that she’s gained a great deal of depth as a character and has grown and expanded in just as many ways as the superheroes in the same universe have done. A lot of people might think of her as something less than a useful personality in the comics but the truth of the matter is that Lois Lane is something far different than the normal, run of the mill civilian. Sticking so close to superheroes doesn’t necessarily allow a person to lead a boring life, especially when the world continues to be shaped and reshaped by the heroes and the villains they fight.

It begins with the swell of an orchestra, the crack of lightning, and dramatic chiaroscuro struck across the stone of a cliffside. Chuck Jones, the wildly respected director of "What's Opera, Doc?" and the majordomo of American animation, didn't get his reputation for skimping on his work, and a full six decades later, this 1957 cartoon classic still sports his trademark directorial flair.
Remember the good ol' days when real books were a thing? Well, Gary Larson sold MILLIONS of them full of these hilarious comics. He called his series "The Far Side."

Here is the pilot episode of Sealab 2021, the parody of Sealab 2020. 2020 was a Hanna-Barbera 30 minute show and was a semi-educational Saturday morning animated show broadcast back in 1972. From 2001 to 2005, Cartoon Network's Adult Swim took footage from the 2020 series and turned it into some really strange comedy.
Without further adieu (there was no prior adieu), here is the pilot episode from the Adult Swim series.

Last summer, after a decades-long hiatus, Berkeley Breathed resurrected his beloved, prescient comic strip 'Bloom County' - on Facebook. Can a Reagan-era political cartoon make sense of the internet age?

We mostly know it superficially, as a series of iconic images - Charlie Brown with his head down, Snoopy perched on top of a doghouse, Linus clutching his baby blanket, Pigpen with a cloud of dirt behind him. But beyond those images is a melancholic masterpiece. The longest-running meditation on loneliness, defeat, and alienation ever in popular American art.
