Speaking of comics, I find myself curiously attracted to the history of different comic strips.  Especially the long-running ones, like Blondie, Charlie Brown, Beetle Bailey, and the like. 

     I would love it if there was a place that showed the original, first published strip of these comics.  I think it would be nifty to see how much they’ve changed over the years.  Blondie is a really good example of this since it’s been running since the 1930’s.

     Perhaps other people don’t share my curiosity about these things, though.

     For anyone who’s curious, my other “comfort comic” is Bloom County.  Normally when something I like is discontinued I feel disappointed, but when Berke Breathed retired Bloom County I actually felt hurt.
