What Comic Strip Collections Do You Own?

I've loved the Comics for years.

I own

1) Hagar the Horrible-dozens of small book collections
2) Foxtrot -all the large collections
3) Mallard Fillmore -both collections
4) Gil Thorp -one collection of this great sports comic
5) Calvin and Hobbes - one of these
6) The Far Side - several of these collections
7) Doonebury - a couple of the early collections
8) Dilbert -two of these, would like more
9) Mother Goose & Grimm- two of these

That's all I can think of off hand.

Several collections of political cartoons as well though.

Re: What Comic Strip Collections Do You Own?

Oh, man, lots. I love newspaper comics.

I've got BC, Doonesbury, Bloom Country, Far Side, Lio, Dykes To Watch Out For, The Flying McCoys, Calvin and Hobbes, Dilbert, Safe Havens, Flash Gordon and more. I also subscribe to Comics Revue. And I have various collections of panel cartoons by guys like Sidney Harris and Gahan Wilson; plus that huge collection of New Yorker cartoons.

I think this Thread would be more at home in TV & Media, so I'm going to send it over there.

Re: What Comic Strip Collections Do You Own?

ALL of The Far Side. All the Anthologys, the Prehistory big book, and the Last Chapter and Worst that contains the final stripes and 13 brand new ones made for the book which did not appear in the newspapers. I'm not counting the LArson book "There's A Hair In My Dirt".

I also have two Dilbert ones.

Re: What Comic Strip Collections Do You Own?

Peanuts, absolutely.

I'm also getting IDW's Complete Chester Gould's Dick Tracy, which look exactly like the Fantagraphics Peanuts volumes; why mess with perfection?

Next year Fantagraphics is supposed to start rereleasing the Hal Foster Prince Valiant collections, and those are on my "Must Buy!" list. I just got the first Mark Schultz/Gary Gianni collection, and it's nice.

I believe it qualifies in some states as a lethal weapon. I know I had to get a permit for mine.
