Top Ten Comics from the Sunday Roanoke Times: Jump Start Gets the Bronze
Today, we bring you the last installment in our favorite Sunday comic strips of the week series.
This was a week when Bill Griffith used his comic strip "Zippy the Pinhead" (not in "The Roanoke Times") to make fun of another comic strip "Funky Winkerbean" (which is in "The Roanoke Times"). Both strips share the same distributor Kings Features.
Our favorite comic strip from "The Roanoke Times" was "Speed Bump" http://www.gocomics/speedbump which featured several ducklings taking selfies of each other. Second place goes to "Get Fuzzy" in which a cat and a dog fight over a baby rattler, which one can presumably find at a Toys R Us http://www.gocomics.com/getfuzzy ............. Lastly, we went with "Jump Start" for third place which revolved around an African-American and a white mother with children almost colliding in the produce aisle of a grocery store http://www.gocomics.com/jumpstart
Here is the top ten:
1. Speed Bump
2. Get Fuzzy
3. Jump Start
4. Non Sequitur
7. Pearls Before Swine
