I am a big fan of Sinfest. One of my daily reads!

Harry

Ha!

My favorite (the most pertinent) is...

All of the above!

Regards,

Harry.

Great one! :)

Favorite cartoon? There's a lot of them. I read daily Donald Duck. So, maybe that's my fav. Oh, and "The Book of Zen" (Asiapac Books) is also my fav comic book.

I have always loved anything by Gahan Wilson.. Anybody remember his stuff?

Thanks, everyone, for your wonderful comments.

Of these Charles Barsotti cartoons, I like to think I'm #1, but sometimes I feel like #2 - both of which indicate that, in reality, I'm #3.

Michael, thanks for providing links to your drawings! I especially liked the last one - life is so simple!

Jordan, thanks for the link to Sinfest!

Harry, yes, all four, taken together, give a pretty good picture of the path.

Uku, I'm more a Scrooge McDuck sort of guy!

Oxeye, oh yes - Gahan Wilson is an absolute favorite. And here's a favorite Gahan Wilson: http://www.cartoonbank.com/product_details.asp?mscssid=1Q78QDG2T74X8GA7718CUVBCT7LGDB36&sitetype=1&did=4&sid=45164&pid=&keyword=truth&section=all&title=undefined&whichpage=1&sortBy=popular

I like the last one . . . not sure why, too many ways to interperate it; but I suppose that goes to show how relative a thing "truth" can be.

However, I don't consider myself to be much of a relativist.
