Top Ten Comics from Sunday Denver Post: North to Alaska
This week, we slightly depart with our survey of comic strips from the Sunday edition of "The Washington Post" with a look at our top ten favorite comic strips from "The Denver Post" (May 3rd edition).
The newspaper is one of the few which carries Chris Carpenter's great strip "Tundra," set in his native Alaska, which this week featured a gag about a guy who is on the low end of a totem pole. "Closer to Home" by John McPherson featured a TSA agent who decides to use an air passenger's spray deodorant. "Sherman's Lagoon" features a squabble between married sharks about what to watch on. In Jim Toomey's last strip panel, the reader wants the male shark to change people, which made us think he just might be watching something like "Swamp People."
Here is our top ten from "The Denver Post:"
2. Close to Home
3. Sherman's Lagoon
4. Bound and Gagged
6. Pearls Before Swine
7. Rhymes with Orange
8. Jump Start
