Now if Watterson and Larson would pop up. I'd love to see

Not going to be the same.

That Strip was linked forever hand in hand with the times it was done, the 80's.

The smartest thing Berke did was walk away and imo he should have done it a year or two earlier

Problem now is he's going to be attacked by the PC police every chance but at least no editor can mangle his work.

Bloom County on it's worst day is better than anything we have now. Hi & Lois? B.C.? Pearls Before Swine? Beatle Bailey? Terrible!

Only Fox Trot comes close and it's only in Sunday's paper.

Mutts is pretty darn good. Heck, even Charles Schulz once called it his favorite written strip and one of the best strips out there. But while I do admit Bloom was one of the best.... Beatle Baily, B.C.? Those are classics themselves. The ones that suck are all the newer ones like: For Better or Worse, Pooch Cafe, Rose, among a bunch of other ones.

And Peaels before Swine, to me, is on the way to cementing itself in the list of classic strips in history.
