It was on the front page of my paper's Sunday comics section, right under Peanuts, and later Calvin and Hobbes. It sucked, as far as I could tell (as a young child).

Right. But Family Circus was just a little one-panel thing. Andy Capp got top billing.

Family Circus is for old women with the easiest "kids say the darndest thing" schtick ever. I don't think its good or impressive, but there is a certain amount of genius in the scam.

but brenda starr was not much good...

neither was Dondi...and what about that little girl with the black frizzy hair...nancy, was that her name?

Dagwood Bumstead was marginal...his sandwiches were the only good thing about it...sarge and beetle bailey was also stupid...

dennis the menace was annoying...and the tv show was worse..
