I haven’t yet read today’s comics; it takes a while to get through them. But I hope to summarize what Comic Strip Master Command has sent out for the syndicated comics for today. In the meanwhile, here’s Pi Day strips of past years.
And I have to offer a warning. GoComics.Com has discontinued a lot of comics in the past couple years. They’ve been brutal about removing the archives of strips they’ve discontinued. Comics Kingdom is similarly ruthless in removing strips not in production. And a recent and, to the user, bad code update broke a lot of what had been non-expiring links. But my discussions of the themes in the comic are still there. And, as I got more into the Reading the Comics project I got more likely to include the original comic. So that’s some compensation.
Here’s the past several years in comics from on or around the 14th of March:
- 2015, featuring The Argyle Sweater, Baldo, The Chuckle Brothers, Dog Eat Doug, FoxTrot Classics, Herb and Jamaal, Long Story Short, The New Adventures of Queen Victoria, Off The Mark, and Working Daze.
- 2016, featuring The Argyle Sweater, B.C., Brewster Rockit, The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee, Curtis, Dog Eat Doug, F Minus, Free Range, and Holiday Doodles.
- 2017, featuring 2 Cows and a Chicken, Archie, The Argyle Sweater, Arlo and Janis, Lard’s World Peace Tips, Loose Parts, Off The Mark, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, TruthFacts, and Working Daze.
- 2018, featuring The Argyle Sweater, Bear With Me, Funky Winterbean Classic, Mutt and Jeff, Off The Mark, Savage Chickens, Warped, and Working Daze.
- 2019, featuring The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee, Liz Climo’s Cartoons, The Grizzwells, Off The Mark, and Working Daze.
- 2020, featuring Baldo, Calvin and Hobbes, Off The Mark, Real Life Adventures, Reality Check, and Warped.
- 2021, featuring Agnes, The Argyle Sweater, Between Friends, Breaking Cat News, FoxTrot, Frazz, Get Fuzzy, Heart of the City, Reality Check, and Studio Jantze.
As mentioned, I have yet to read today’s comics. I’m looking forward to it, at least to learn what Funky Winkerbean character I’m going to be most annoyed with this week. It will be Les Moore. I was also going to look forward to seeing if there would ever be a Pi Day strips roundup without The Argyle Sweater or Reality Check. It turns out there was one in 2019. Weird how you can get the impression something is always there even when it’s not.
