With his image of an Armenia chess player, we discuss some of our favorite comic strips not found in the print version of "The Washington Post." While the post has a wonderful, eclectic mix of comic strips, there are still several which aren't in one of America's most widely read newspapers.
The reason for the Armenian chess player is a brilliant satire of chess in "The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee," our second favorite comic strip behind "The Arctic Circle," which is a hilarious parody of LinkedIn users (well, I am one of them myself).
We also loved "Animal Crackers," which featured some subtle dark comedy which proves no one should try to reenact Icarus.
And, "The Pajama Diaries," dealt with a look at how a mother must try to figure out what to do with their teenager's bedroom that is all decorated with teen idol posters.
Here is our top ten:
1. Arctic Circle
2. The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee
3. Animal Crackers
4. The Pajama Diaries
5. Edge City
6. The Flying McCoys
9. Get Fuzzy
10. Tina's Groove
