Here’s what comic strips and webcomics I recommend, including classic strips (i.e., ones that’ve ended their runs). All of the strips below are available either in print compilations or have online archives.
This week’s minorities in cartoons entry is “Jane’s World,” a comic strip by Paige Braddock. The strip debuted in 1998.
It’s time for another look at what comic strips and webcomics I’m currently reading. While it’s similar to my previous list of comics last fall, there have been some changes.

This week’s minorities in cartoons entry is “Curtis,” a newspaper comic strip by Ray Billingsley. The strip began its run in 1988.
“Curtis” stars 11-year-old Curtis, an African-American youth who gets into various misadventures, usually from misbehaving or dealing with his family and friends. His family includes Barry, Curtis’ obnoxious younger brother who usually manages to avoid getting in trouble, or sometimes causes Curtis to get into trouble. There’s also the boys’ parents, Greg and Diane, who also prominently feature in the strip.
